Two-Tier Fountain Project
A two-tier fountain is a beautiful DIY decoration that takes less than 15 minutes to put together. It's a classic water feature that suits nearly any space!
- smartpond® 80 GPH Premium Fountain Pump
- smartpond® Flexible ½ in Vinyl Tubing
- Medium Sized Planter
- Small Planter
- Decorative rocks
- Sealant (may be needed)
Gather your supplies and find a location to display your fountain. The fountain will get heavy once assembled. It's easier to put it together where you want to keep it, rather than moving it afterward.
Note: If the mid-sized container has a hole on the bottom, you will need to use foam sealant or epoxy to fill the hole. Wait for the sealant to dry (typically about a full day) before proceeding.
Attach your tubing to your pump and set in the base of the medium-sized planter.
Fill the planter ¾ full with decorative rocks, covering the pump.
Trim excess tubing.
Feed tubing through the base of the smaller planter, so it is visible on the inside by about ½ in.
Adjust the smaller planter on top of the medium-sized planter and fill in rocks around the base of the small planter as desired.
Plug in and enjoy your new fountain!
