Large Pond & Lake Fountains
Selecting the Best Fountain
When it comes to enhancing the beauty of ponds and lakes, large fountains are an excellent choice. These gushing water features add a touch of elegance while improving the pond or lake ecosystem with added oxygen. It can be overwhelming to choose the best outdoor fountain for your specific needs since there are many options.
First, consider the size of your pond or lake. Big fountains have different pump sizes, so choose one that matches the size of your water feature. A small fountain may look small on a large water body, while an oversized one might overpower the surroundings. Finding the perfect balance is key to achieving a visually appealing result.
Heavy-duty fountain pumps range in size from 2 horsepower to 15 or more horsepower for the giant models. Otterbine makes some of the largest standard lake fountains on the market in their Giant Series. This series has a design that ensures low-maintenance and high output water flow!
Choosing the nozzle and spray pattern is equally important. Our friendly pond and lake management experts are available to guide you through the selection process. We can help whether your goal is a Bellagio fountain with dancing columns and color-changing light or a simple V-shaped spray to keep pond water from becoming stagnant.
Next, think about the style and design that best suits your taste and the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space. You can choose between classic or modern styles, as there are many options to suit your preferences. Find the ideal fountain for your style, whether you prefer detailed or simple designs.
Consider the materials used for manufacturing as you select a brand. Pick a manufacturer that uses strong, long-lasting materials like stainless steel for important parts that won't rust. These materials help your fountain last longer and require less maintenance. As a result, you can enjoy its beauty without constantly having to take care of it.
Most reputable manufacturers provide at least a 2-year warranty against manufacturer defects including the fountain pump, float, and control panel.
Additionally, pay attention to the water flow and sound produced by a lake fountain. The large cascades of water on a large water body can drown out other nuisance sounds such as highway noise. This creates a calming environment even in the most urban settings. The sound of water cascading back into the lake is soothing and therapeutic.
Last, don't forget to consider the installation process and any additional features that may enhance your experience. Some large pond fountains come with built-in LED lights, which can illuminate the water at night, creating a mesmerizing display. Most may offer programmable timers or remote controls, providing convenience and ease of use.
The power supply for most models should be installed by a professional electrician.
Amazing nighttime water fountain views are easily created by using intense color-changing LED lights. The best waterproof lights include programmed color changes and can also be customized to a color theme of your choice.
By carefully considering these factors, you can confidently choose the best outdoor fountain for your ponds and lakes. Whether you're looking to create a focal point or simply enhance the natural beauty of your outdoor space, a large fountain will undoubtedly elevate the overall aesthetic and provide a sense of tranquility for you and your guests to enjoy.
