Fire and water. There are few things in the world quite like combining two traditional opposites for making a stunning statement. For my part, our new Fire Fountain is one of the most exciting new products to come through in a long time.
This product would be really cool if it were just a bowl of stones and water with a fire pot in the middle, but it’s so much more than that. It features a pump system that moves water steadily from the outside of the bowl surface, falling over the edge of the inner ring like an infinity pool, an endless cycle of water moving toward fire. Place your own decorative stones or pebbles or glass, and you can shape the movement of the water to create your own pattern of ripples in the water to reflect the light of the dancing flame.
It’s ridiculously simple to set up, too. The whole thing is designed to be basically plug-and-play, with the pump and tubing included. You just need to put in the pump (easy), add water (easy), put fuel in the stainless steel fire pot (easy), and plug it in (easy). Arrange your own decorative stones (or whatever else you choose, within reason), and you’ve got your own one-of-a-kind living sculpture of fire and water, right there on your patio.
Maintenance is a breeze, too. Just periodically change out the water (no chemicals to worry about), keep the wick saturated with smokeless paraffin or fuel gel (not included), and maybe rinse your stones and filter from time to time. The fire pot is stainless steel and the basin is made from strong GFRC, and the pump is a quality product from Aquascape, one of the most trusted names in water gardening, so this fountain should give you years and years of easy, low-maintenance beauty.
