The pool size, spray height and actual location should be taken into consideration at the commencement of the fountain design process. Under normal wind conditions, the water spray height should not exceed the distance from the jet to the nearest edge of the pool. A maximum pool depth of 18″ is standard in the industry and is recommended whenever possible based on safety and practicability. It is generally recommended that darker colors be utilized within the pool basin. Black has proven to work most effectively as it accentuates the appearance of depth. The use of lighter colors is not recommended, as they generally create a dirty appearance to the water. The texture of the materials used in the fountain’s structure is an important consideration in achieving the desired water effect. As a rule of thumb, rough, irregular surfaces generally increase sound, visibility and water motion; smooth surfaces provide softer, more tranquil effects. Similarly, the sound level of the fountain can also be controlled by varying design. Heavy, massive water features (e.g., cascade nozzles, aerated waterfalls) create greater sound volumes, whereas fine streamed nozzles create softer sound volumes. Often, greater sound is desired when a project is designed to attract attention or draw people to a particular area. More subtle sound is frequently used to downplay unwanted background noise in indoor environments.
