    fountain

    Hello. We are getting a 16 X 32 rectangular inground pool. The pool place said it comes with a hookup for a fountain if we want it. The hose will be sticking out of the ground 2 ft if we get it without some sort of fountain which I have no idea at this point. I think they usually put it on the diving board, but we aren't getting one. Any help/photos would be appreciated. I don't want to say no and regret it later, but what do I do with the hose sticking out of the cement?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Whay type of pool is this? I have never heard of a pool "coming with a fountain" as that is just a separate plumbing run (and a diving board will not have water running to it). It almost sounds like they are using this random "hose" sticking out of the ground to try to upsell you into buying a water feature. If the plumbing for it is included, just have them put it through the wall and make it another normal pool return.

    Sorry it is a waterfall hose. They normally give it free with the diving board. We are getting the diving board unless I can figure something else out. We don't need to pay any extra for the hose.
