This clever water feature is illuminated by LED lights for a colourful night-time display.





The project


It was not an easy one to accomplish but I was determined to do so.

The frame is made of treated Pine set in quick-set concrete. I used 450mm steel sleeper pegs for additional support.

I used a 160L Ezy Storage Bunker Heavy Duty Storage Tub as the reservoir. The pump is an Aquapro AP750LV water-feature pump. 


I connected it using 19mm poly pipe, and I used Pope Barbed Adjustable Flow Tricklers (10 pack) to control the flow of the water.
