I got a couple bags of Quikrete in the garage, which should do the trick.
But, should I set it up with a little water pump that sucks from the bottom and attaches to a small hose and then to a pipe that discharges a constant small stream into the pool? I'm thinking the sound of tinkling water would be worth it.
You need to have the "right" place to put it when you're finished. That's more difficult than the construction.ReplyDelete
I got it! There's a spot near the front door where everyone coming into the house will see and hear it. Roses hanging over it. Nice.Delete
Now, I got to set up a schedule to make it happen.
Yes, a small pump. Use a valve in order to get the right kind of drop rate, and use a piece of soft tubing so you can pinch it off to get the right size drops. Plus the right target for the drops for a sounding stone (or plate).ReplyDelete
Getting those three right is a BITCH, but it is worth it.
Excellent info! Thanks.Delete
I'd put a shishi odoshi in it - those Japanese deer scarers where the water gradually fills a bamboo tube and then tips it to spill out, making a splash and a knocking sound.Delete
Both Lowes and Home Depot have small fountain pumps (110 VAC) that will do this (some have adjustable flow rate as well) and they come with a 3 year warrant. But if you do a quick trawl you will also come across similar pumps that come with a solar panel as a full kit. These are nice too. I've never had a Lowe's pump last 3 years, and never seen them fail to honor the warranty either.ReplyDelete
I got the pump but I kind of need it for pumping out the basement.ReplyDelete
Can hardly wait to see your finished deer scare.ReplyDelete
