The floating fountain can be a spectacular water feature. One of the benefits of the floating fountain is that the possibilities for aerator patterns are endless. Aerator patterns can be a single stream of water or several streams, creating a multi-layered pattern. We've gathered some design ideas for your floating fountain here.
The Fan – The floating fountain begins with one spray of water and fans into one sheet of water before it comes down in a gentle spray pattern.
The Spider – A number of aerators cluster in a circle and spray outward into a series of low streams that descend into a pool.
The Geyser – A number of aerators cluster in the center and send a gush of water up into the air. The effect is like a spectacular geyser.
The Arches – The arches are characterized by multiple streams of water spraying upward and out, which eventually fall into a body of water.
The Tier – The tier has multiple layers of water flowing out of variously angled aerators. The bottom layer may be a misty rush of water. The middle layer may be an arch pattern. The top layer can be a single, upward spraying stream.
