Fountain


This is a HOA retention pond that was built back in the 80's and has just been a basic retention pond, well they called The Pond Monster and we went to work to help the water quality and move the pond surface area around
2 horse pump running external spray head and to 2 other artesian heads to keep the water moving while the fountain runs

access water from the spray head is released to two other outlets as to help keep the pond from having any stagnant water as you can see the build up is rather nasty and really glad I had my waders as the bottum is very mucky

we came in and poured a 2'x2' concrete pad with 4 foot rebar driven into the ground and then cross tied 4 2' pieces of rebar and then added the 5000 lbs concrete for the pump to be bolted to along with the custom built cage
