Water Fountain is an artificial setup of water used to beautify the surroundings. It can be part of a pond or can be set up individually.

It also can consist of either a single step or multi-step. It also provides for different water sound like gurgling, ticking, or just sounds of flowing water.
How is it made?
A fountain is much simpler than what it seems to be. Built-in a creative way, Water fountain has a very understandable construction. It includes:
- The hardware components consist of a mechanical pump, a water nozzle, and a water basin. The combination of all these three is what forms a fountain. A pump pumps up water to different stages, a nozzle is responsible for flushing water in a different direction and a basin holds the water and stores it for further pumping.
- Built with a fixed amount of water, the fountain can create different sounds by setting the direction of the nozzle. A nozzle in the same direction creates a different sound effect that a nozzle set in the opposite direction or from different angles. They create adding and clashing sounds producing various effects.
- Further basins are fixed with several waterproof lighting systems that create different effects of lights when water flows above it. Apart from its buckets, statues, wheels, etc. also help create beauty and other effects.
