Fountain Maintenance

Fountain basins are a must for pondless water fountain styles. Pondless water fountains allow water to overflow into the ground instead of into a visible stone basin. Pondless water features look more natural because the water is simply flowing into the ground.

When shopping for a pondless basin, choose one that is larger than the diameter of your fountain’s overflow footprint. The basin will be hidden, but will collect the water that overflows from the fountain. The basin can be hidden with pebbles, rocks or even some types of fabric.
