All about design of water feature fountains

The development of materials that is taking place in industry has led us to change the methods used to manufacture this nozzle, keeping its spectacular final effect, even when the water feature fountain is turned off. In this way, we have changed the chromium-plated copper for ever-appealing AISI 304 stainless steel, ensuring price and weight savings on being able to make a reduction in diameters for similar flows. Even though its mechanization is more costly, there is no doubt that its durability and safety make this material one of the most suitable for the design of nozzles meant for water feature fountains.
Times change and technology evolves, which is why last year, here at Safe-Rain, we set to work on a new underwater LED fountain light (ip68), made from stainless steel.
As we always do whenever we pinpoint a market demand and/or need, our technicians in the RDI department got down to work to design what is now commercially known as the LAKE Spotlight. It is an underwater fountain light which is expressly designed to light up architectural fountains, lakes and ponds.
We have finally come across a book on hydraulics in architectural water features that we believe could be very useful for any customers and other people interested in calculations for the construction of architectural water features and water park features.
Its author, Mr. Juan Eusebio González Fariñas, was professor of the Hydraulics of Architectural Water Features course at the University School of Technical Architects at the La Laguna University (Canary Islands), and has taught several courses on architectural water features and water parks.
