Water Fountains...What are the Benefits?
Over the past twelve years or so, water fountains have almost become a craze. More indoor and outdoor water fountain models are available in more choices of styles, sizes, colors, and materials than ever before! Office desks may sport miniature water fountains, logo water fountains are used for corporate signage; hospitals and dental offices use water features to calm visitors; outdoor water fountains are increasingly called for in residential developments, parks, even children’s playgrounds. Municipalities are incorporating water fountains in high-traffic locations. Everyone loves water fountains! Why? click to read more...

Selecting Water Fountains
Handmade water fountains made by individual artists are shown alongside manufactured fountains of all descriptions. Sleek waterwalls highlight modern décor while more traditional fountains designs support a cozier ambiance.

You need to evaluate the proportion of the water fountains chosen with respect to their environment. Big water fountains can be grand, such as a monumental pool waterfall making an ordinary swimming pool into an oasis. But a smaller fountain can be just the right counterpoint in a room with a great deal of visual interest. Contrast can be key: a water fountain that is low to the ground can balance a room with soaring ceilings. click to read more...

The Invisible Effects of Water Fountains
When I first fell in love with water fountains, I noticed them in a store around the corner from my job, on my lunch hour. Mesmerized, many stressed-out New Yorkers would come into this store and stand looking at the water fountains on display. Negative ions -- ­those invisible, tasteless, and odorless molecules that are heightened by running water (including water fountains)­seem to create a sense of well-being. Why do “negative” ions create “positive” feelings? Well, ions are molecules that have gained or lost a positive charge. Falling water ­such as that from water fountains--creates thousands of negative ions by splitting other wise neutral particles of air, freeing electrons to manifest their vitalizing function. click to read more...

Selecting Water Fountains Size
One needn’t have a large fountain to make a big impact. Smaller tabletop water fountains made of semi-precious stone, lit from within, can provide enough visual and auditory impact to balance out a room full of overstuffed furniture, and a little desktop fountain can provide a personal element to balance out a cool, sleek, modern office. Balance and contrast are two qualities to consider. click to read more...

How Often Should You Add Water to Your Fountains?
One thing you wish to avoid is running a water fountain pump without enough water...this will burn out the pump. So refilling a water fountain is an important point to keep it working well! When you start to use a new water fountain, notice how much water evaporates and how frequently...click to read more...

Using Scent in Water Fountains
We all know how the scent of mulled cider or pine needles can add to the ambiance of a room! Aromatherapy has become a household word! A tiny droplet of your favorite essential oil can be dispersed subtle-ly throughout a room by a water fountain. The emphasis is on “tiny droplet” here…too much and you’ll end up with gunk in your pump, or a room that smells like a taxi with one of those air-fresheners hanging from the rear-view mirror! click to read more...

Sounds from Water Fountains...
When you tap a tuning fork in your space, do you hear an echo, do voices travel throughout your home with ease? Then you probably have a very “live” space, and the sound of a water fountain will be magnified. If you typically have to raise your voice to be heard, then your space is either noisy to start with or you space is “live,” which means the sound of the fountain will also be magnified. click to read more...

Water Fountain Care and Cleaning
Because various fountain manufacturers use different materials to make their water fountains, some include specific cleaning instructions relevant to their products. Follow these instructions closely (they are usually fairly simple) and you will enjoy your water fountain for a long time! Do not use any products on the fountain that are not recommended in the instructions that come with your fountain. click to read more...

Where Should You Place Your Water Fountains?
There are several factors to consider when you decide where to place your new water fountains. While water fountains are engineered to minimize splash, there will always be an occasional spritz or two and you want your floors to be able to weather this… For this reason, we recommend that floor and wall fountains be placed over flooring that will not easily be damaged by water. Fine wood floors or carpeting are not ideal for fountain placement. click to read more...

Using Water Fountains for Interior Decoration
When human beings make decisions as to how to decorate their home and work environment, we involve the five physical senses: sight, scent, sound, touch and sometimes taste. Water fountains provide elements of the first three of these and sometimes the fourth as well. A selected water fountain is usually chosen with an eye to proportion, materials and finishes, and the sound produced. Water fountains for floor, tabletop, and wall placement are all available. click to read more...

Feng Shui Water Fountain Article by Stephanie Roberts
I've received several questions this past month about the difference between aquariums and water fountains, and which is better (for example) for the wealth area or to support career, so I thought it would be a good idea to address that here. There are two important factors in choosing a feng shui remedy of any kind: the element that object or image represents, and any symbolic meaning that item may have either in general or to you specifically. The aquarium/water fountain question has to do with the element represented, which in this case is "moving water." Click to read more...

Feng Shui and Water Elements (including Water Fountains)
Feng Shui Solutions by Kartar Diamond, Senior Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui and the Water Element The water element may be associated with the colors blue and black and shapes that are curvy, but real water is the absolute most powerful cure when you need to have the water element represented somewhere on your property or in your home. Some homes need to have water fountains or aquariums on a semi-permanent basis. But there are cycles to be calculated in Flying Star (Shyung Kung) feng shui and the best places for water outside your property will change every twenty years. Inside your own home, the best locations for water may change yearly. This doesn’t mean that you need to constantly move your water fountain, but occasionally this is best. click to read more...

Water Fountains and Feng ShuiWater Fountains and Feng Shui
Feng Shui literally means wind water. It is an ancient Chinese study of how mankind is affected for better or for worse by the surroundings. With Shui or water as a component of its name, it should not surprise anyone that water has a significant role in this metaphysics study. According to an ancient Chinese Feng Shui sage, ‘qi’ (or life giving energy) is dispersed by the wind and accumulates near water. The ideal Feng Shui location is one with an abundance of lively ‘qi’. It should have hills at the back, to the left and right to protect the ‘qi’ from being blown away by strong winds. And there should be a river or lake in front to help retain this life giving ‘qi’.
