Here are the instructions of how we made my tea pot fountain. Hope it helps with all of you who are interested!
  • Here is my tea pot fountain in full bloom.
  • We drilled a a hole in the tea pot and then threaded it. We attached flanges to a solid concrete block to support both the tea pot and the gold pan. The block is heavy enough to support the weight of the unit underwater.
  • We then built a support for the gold pan and dropped the unit into the whiskey barrel. We added a fountain pump and inserted tubing up through the tee on the bottom of the pipe that supports the tea pot and into the tea pot.
  • Add water and your done! The unit is free standing so it can be leveled and no holes are drilled in the whiskey barrel. I put it all away every winter and take it out and set it up in the spring.
  • Last year we poured a concrete base that the whiskey barrel sits on so it doesn't sink into the dirt.

    Love this idea. Will have a go at making this soon. What sort of pipe did you use?

    How do you keep the tea pot (humidifier) from rusting?
