Water source tabletop fountains are essentially a submersible pump at the bottom of an airtight container. The glass or ceramic bowls are ideal containers, like old pots. Adjust the pump to bubble gently along the surface or add more tubes to spray water up and down drip. Paint or decorate the bowl. Add decorations such as rocks and plants to customize the font.
The water pump is the unsung hero of the source tabletop fountains. The fountain pumps are available in many stores, including department stores and specialty or home improvement stores. These devices vary according to the amount of water pumped per hour. A reasonable amount for a small fountain is 70 to 90 gallons (265 340 liters) per hour, 120 to 170 gallons (454-643 l) per hour is fine for a source of medium size. Some pumps have a switch to control its speed.
