    My Dream Water Feature

    I would love to have this as a water feature in a pool!

    Pretty cool. Might not be as much fun as it seems since you can not stand under it though.

    I'm not real sure where that is... Just found it, and few others on the internet. Usually it's easy to find out where it came from using google images 'similar' function. Not much pops up for this one.

    I'd definitely put it in it's own tiny pool next to the main pool so you could not approach it. Wouldn't want anyone to figure out the secret.

    It's the Magic Tap Fountain of Aqualand Bahia de Cadiz in Spain!

    Kinda hard to stand right under it seeing there must be a pipe in the middle of the water stream that brings the water up. Would be interesting to build one.

    would that not cause massive PH rise?

    Re: My Dream Water Feature

    And congratulations, you're a true TFP'r. That was exactly my first thought. Worry about the water balance first.

    But I've seen waterfalls bigger then that in pools. Don't know exactly what happens as I don't have one.

    Been to Aqualand in Cadiz. It is pretty cool looking. The water park is on the small side but still lots of fun for the kids. My wife is from there...

    my PH is high enough here.. it is nearly 8 out of tap so it's a constant battle to try and keep it down.
