Sphere fountain rollers are absolutely wonderful in their appeal and design. They are one of the most difficult fountains to design at home. However, with this easy to implement design guide, it should be a piece of cake for you to design a rolling sphere table fountain.
o Submersible pump that circulates about 80 to 120 gallons of water per hour.
o Narrow tubular hose to fit the opening of the pump nozzle
o A small rolling ball of light marble.
o A rock or stone base with the hole drilled in the middle.
o A bowl of proportional size
Step 1: Installation Clean your bowl and the base of the rock. Make sure the base is well-drilled and that there is no blockage. Place the submersible water pump in the bowl. Make sure the pump has a high flow rate. Add enough water to the bowl to cover the pump and test its function.
Step 2: Base Integration Place the base of the rock on top of the pump spout. If the pump nozzle is too wide, use the flexible hose to penetrate the drilled base. Cut the pipe hose to the other end of the pierced base so that it remains invisible.
Step 3: Add Marble Sphere Turn on the pump and check if the water flows through the pierced base to turn the marble sphere. If the marble sphere does not turn, you have two options: either choose a pump with a higher gph capacity (gallons per hour capacity) or choose a marble sphere with a lighter weight.
Step 4: Test everything and decorate Now that you have placed the sphere on the drilled base, your fountain is almost ready. Add decorative items such as river stones, pebbles, moss or mosaic to your bowl if you want to add some sparkle to your fountain!
Step 5: Maintenance The maintenance of this fountain is quite easy. Just check the water level regularly and observe the evaporation rate of the water.
The application of these easy steps to implement will help you design a beautiful rolling sphere fountain to refresh your mind, rejuvenate your senses, and unleash your creativity this Christmas season!
