Hey guys!

First off I'd like to say thanks to all the support over the last 2 years I opened my pool this season to a perfectly balanced and clear paradise!

Anyway, with all the free time I had not worrying about chemicals, I made a new fountain. It's not done yet as I will be adding a diverter channel in the middle, but in case anyone is interested I can answer questions. I can also take more pictures later, this is all I have from the install yesterday.

You can't see that there is a valve to divert the water to the fountain before the return. From there, there is the waterfall, then the fountain. I had the fountain last year but decided to add the waterfall for this season. I will be adding a channel in the middle of the waterfalls plumbing to be able to have one or the other or both going at the same time. Right now you can either have both or just the waterfall. The idea of this is to be able to "shower" in the pool with warm water from the heater coming out of the waterfall. My family is all cold blooded so they won't go under water most of the time so this way they can get their hair wet and stay warm. any advice for improvement is appreciated or I can answer any questions! Be safe out there. [emoji113]

I would like to see a picture of the outlet in the pipe for the waterfall. How long is it and what is the width?

It's about 16" long and I used a Dremel bit to smooth out the bottom edge so the water would pour out smoother. So it don't know the exact inside width. I can get a closer measurement and picture after work [emoji108]
