Installing a stone fountain in your garden
All of our fountain and water features are self contained and can sit on top of a patio or terrace, no need to dig holes or have a separate reservoir. Once the fountains are filled the pump simply recycles the water within the fountain. The pumps can easily be adjusted to enable the right amount of water to produce the best effect.
Most of our designs can also be used as a center piece for a pond but please state this when ordering as small changes need to be made to the cable gland
Although we supply many different types of fountain this article will include some aspects common to all our fountains and water features such as the cable gland and general points to note.
Also see millstone water features installation guide which covers a simpler type of design.
Or for a more complex design see the Tiered fountain installation guide

|(1) Place the fountain base section in your chosen location, the picture is of a gravel bed but can also be placed on concrete/paving. |
The bottom edge of the base section has a groove cut into it so your electric cable which runs the pump can exit to the rear of the fountain or if you prefer it can go straight down into a conduit.
The base section is hollow so if you want to connect to an existing cable in your garden this is a good place to put the connection.
It is good practice to make sure each section is level as you build it up, no cement/glue is required.
|(2) Place the second section on top of the base, you will note all sections have the 'Kinsman' design mark, this will always appear the right way up if the part is in the right orientation
