For over 35 years we have been specialists in manufacturing materials and accessories for water feature fountains. From the very beginning of the company's history, we have placed special attention on meeting our customers' requirements and now, in the era of Internet, we are keen to use this global media to come one step closer and provide you with technical tips and advice concerning the world of architectural fountains.
To this end, under the supervision of the experts, Carlos Velasco and Juan Eusebio Gonzalez, we plan to publish a series of installments that, on the one hand, will deal with the Origin and functional Classification of fountain nozzles and on the other, will discuss the Design and Hydraulics involved in water feature fountains.Read more
Carlos Velasco's contribution is based on his many years' experience as Director of the Safe-Rain Technical Department. He will be responsible for outlining the origin of fountain nozzles and explaining how they are classified according to their functional performance. Undoubtedly, we will therefore find out more about how these products are designed and how they influence the different effects produced in the water jets. Apart from this, he will also provide practical tips on installing architectural fountains..
Juan Eusebio González Fariñas is Professor at La Laguna University in the Canary Islands and author, among other works, of the books entitled “The Hydraulics of Architectural Fountains and Aquatic Installations" and “A Selection of Topics about Hydraulics”. He will provide in-depth knowledge about the following matters
- Components of Architectural Fountains.
- Recommendations for the design and installation of water feature fountains.
- Calculating the hydraulics of an architectural fountain
- Automating calculations of the hydraulics of a water feature fountain
In the next few months, we shall publish articles about choosing the most suitable electric pumps for each case (Submergible, Horizontal, etc.), as well as providing practical advice to ensure the best installation of your Architectural Fountain.
We hope this Technical Blog will provide you with the necessary know-how about hydraulics and installing water feature fountains to carry out your projects.
