    Re: Another homemade fountain

    Hi JT2006. I am mailing from South Africa and was wondering if you can tell me exactly what size fitting you used to do this fountain? I am not very hands-on, but like to do things myself. Will really appreciate if you could help! I think the outlet pipe size I have is 30mm donno what inches that is?

    Thank you

    Using the convertunits calculator, 30mm = 1 3/16ths inches.
