The purpose of this article is to attempt to solve the problems faced by designers, planners and installation workers of architectural water features when they take on a new project. Between when the water is driven by the pump units and when it exits through the nozzles it passes through a series of pipes and components that cause pressure losses. It is essential to be able to calculate these losses in order to successfully tackle a project for an architectural water feature.

This article sets out a series of theoretical and practical calculations made on a spreadsheet, which is freely available, from which the optimal results necessary for resolving the hydraulic calculations of an architectural water feature can be obtained.Read More

Fuente danzarina DancingAs we all know, the trend in the sector is to bring dynamism to water. This is why we are launching two rotating nozzles, used to obtain attractive water displays, which can be added to the design of any musical, dancing or cybernetic water feature.

Our experience in the production of impact sprinklers for gardening has been fundamental for the design of these rotating fountain nozzles. These sprinklers rotate at a certain speed due to water pressure. This is the principle behind the operation of a waterwheel. Therefore, generating movement from water pressure does not pose a technical difficulty for Safe Rain. We have now decided to use this fact to create architectural water features that are extremely simple to construct, but with great visual beauty, as the water moves without any additional mechanical or electrical devices.Read more
