Why Own a Fountain?

Fountain-owners agree – bringing a sample of nature’s flowing water into our built environment is beneficial in several ways. It lets us reconnect with nature, with mental and physical benefits. The "babbling brook" which many poets have celebrated provides welcome respite from our harried pace - even in a miniature dose. "Fountain therapy," some have called it.

It seems we’re pleased both by a fountain’s sight and sound. Remember the times you’ve sat beside a waterfall or creek or walked along the beach? Splashing drops. Rapidly flowing cascades hopping and bouncing over and between rocks. Waves racing each other up the sand. The plopping, dripping, and swooshing sounds. The slow current causing water plants to wave at you. The beauty of water in motion.

Captured indoors, fountains serve as natural humidifiers, adding water vapor to our air. This makes a more hospitable environment for us, our indoor plants, and pets.

Fountains are works of art in themselves and add visual and audible interest to any setting. In fact, larger pieces can be the focus of a living area or lobby.
