Fountain Designs and Types   

Fountains have for a long time portrayed an image of elegance and sophistication.  Having a fountain in your yard not only greets visitors, but also adds visual appeal to your overall property.  Fountains can be installed independent of a pool, or as part of an existing pool.  Pool dependent fountains utilize Aquascope™ technology for optimum performance.


You really have two choices among fountain types. Either a free standing specialty fountain system or a telescoping system that is installed in an existing body of water. Both are right choices depending on your needs, and your desires. Pools, for example, are perfect for telescoping fountains. Backyard patios are ideal for specialty fountains. Choose which is right for you and learn more about them. Learn more about;
