Making a Floating Fountain Fixed is Easy with Otterbine

. minute read

Turning a floating fountain into a cost-effective fixed fountain is easy with Otterbine. 

For those who have a floating fountain from Otterbine’s C3 range – including all of the decorative patterns and Fractional series – all you need to do is remove the float from the fountain and attach the three-legged stand from the fixed system to anchor the fountain to the bottom of the pond basin. And voila, you have a fixed fountain. 

This in turn removes the back float from the floating fountain (or, if you were going for a bespoke fountain fixture, the piping and valves) from sight for an aesthetically pleasing result. 

Simon Powell, business development manager at Otterbine, says: “This simple system provides a solution to the aesthetic problem of having some of the fountain’s parts visible, as can be the case with floating fountains. This is a cost-effective, off-the-shelf and simple to install solution in comparison to the alternative which is a bespoke build.”

Each stand comes assembled with adjustable legs that can be positioned at different heights to accommodate sloping bottoms of varying depths between 22 to 30 inches, while the rubber feet can be removed for earth bottoms. 

Made from corrosion-resistant and durable marine-grade stainless steel, the pump chamber fits flush with the surface and comes with power control centre cable with quick disconnect for ease of installation. They are backed by a robust five-year warranty and can be fitted with Otterbine’s Fountain Glo™ RGBW light systems to enhance the fountain’s display and give rich vibrant light through a variety of coloured displays and sequences at night.
