Hello, my name is John Redd and I am with Outdoor Water Solutions. Today, we are in Northwest Arkansas at our manufacturing facility to take a look at one of our eco fountains. The reason they’re eco is for three reasons. Number one, they’re economical to purchase, number two, they’re economical to operate, number three, they’re economical to maintain because we carry a full line of parts and they’re affordable.
In our eco line of fountains, we have both a 1/2 horsepower and a 1 horsepower. This particular model in front of me is a 1/2 horsepower and it comes with four different nozzles on there, there’s one on there. The nozzles are interchangeable and replaceable, so if you get tired of one pattern and you want to swap it out, you can.
It also comes standard with a 115-volt pumping motor, but we also carry 230-volt and it comes standard with a 100-foot cord. We can also do longer cords if you want a longer cord. We also manufacture this fountain a 1 horsepower fountain. It also comes with these four nozzles as well, a 115-volt pumping motor, which can be converted to 230-volt, and then a power cord which measures 100 or 150-foot and we can make that longer as well.
So let’s talk about the design of our eco fountains. First of all, we start off with a high-quality polypropylene float with UV protection we then combine that with a high-efficiency pump and motor and then a screen on the bottom side to help protect that pump and motor from debris and algae. That can be an optional add-on to the 1/2 horsepower fountain as well.
With the eco fountain line, we also offer a set of LED lights, and on this particular fountain we have a set of three, 12-watt, LED lights in the stainless steel housing. The great thing about these lights is that they will run off either 115-volt or 230-volt power. We don’t need low voltage transformers. With each of these fountains, we also provide a controller or timer. This is the timer we would provide without lights. It’s just a standard mechanical timer, so you can turn your fountain on and off when you want. Then once you do get lights, we offer a photo self-timer. This one right here will control when the fountain goes on and off as well as your lights. With the lights, we also have optional light covers. So, if you want a set of green lenses, red lenses, or blue lenses, or even one of each, we sell these and they’re fully interchangeable and replaceable. That just gives you a nice ambiance to the fountains if you want to change the colors for say a holiday or Christmas.
