David Harber's Water Fountains
David Harber makes both striking reinterpretations of classical water fountains – water bowls or the Crucello tiered water fountain, for example – as well as unusual and contemporary pieces like the award-winning Chalice with dark water swirling hypnotically around a stainless steel hemisphere.
Self-contained or not
Like all David Harber pieces, our water fountains are made to order. So most David Harber water features can be made to work either as self-contained features with pump and reservoir; or they can be integrated into a pond or lake. Feasibility in the latter case depends on water quality and the nature of the site. David Harber will always advise you on what will work well in your space.
All outdoor water fountains require regular maintenance if they are to last for many years. Typically, a water feature will need to be completely drained down at least a few times a year. And like a swimming pool, a garden water fountain will also need regular cleaning to prevent build up of algae.
What sort of water is best?
Soft water is best for water fountains. Hard water can cause a build up of limescale or grime on the surface of the feature. If you have hard water, the feature will need to be drained down more regularly to prevent limescale build up.
Crystal clear water?
All David Harber water features are supplied with a UV filter as standard. These are mot really filters, but rather ultra violet lights that kill off algae and keep water clean. Coupled with regular cleaning and draining down, the water in your outdoor fountain should remain clear and sparkling.
How much noise do garden water fountains make?
All water features emit the relaxing sound of trickling water, how much will depend on the individual water feature. None are very loud though and sadly, the noise is unlikely to drown out the sound of heavy traffic.
