How to Install Your Own Floor Fountain

There's a big difference in understanding how to install a commercial water fountain compared to understanding how to install a yard fountain. Likewise, a small to medium floor fountain (indoor or outdoor) is much easier to install than a stately waterfall.

Whichever project you're going to attempt, there are some things you should be aware of, including:

  • Read the specs and description of the floor fountain, wall fountain, or water fountain before purchasing. Any floor fountain or wall fountain that requires hard wiring will likely require a trained electrician to do the work.
  • Don't let the size or type of fountain discourage you. For example, Serenity Health online sells a gorgeous Bamboo Sun II Wall Fountain that actually comes ready to hang.
  • If you're nervous about how to install a pump into a fountain, don't be. All of the fountains sold at Serenity Health come with easy-to-replace water pumps. When the time comes to replace the pump, the most important thing is to make sure to purchase the right size and strength in relation to the size/type of floor fountain you own.

The majority of fountains (indoor and/or outdoor) are easy to install and require no professional assistance. However, it's important to read the directions carefully and, if the directions call for a professional electrician, don't try to do it yourself.
