This isn't a pond question, but involves water, so just wanted some input.

I had a grandiose idea the other day about making a water attraction in my new landscaping project that we will be undertaking since our fire. I'd like to have a type of fountain and this is my idea.................told the Spousal Unit and he basically told me "knock yourself out.........., we got plenty of rocks". I'd like to make a beehive-shaped mound of rocks and have some type of pipe come up through the middle and have the water bubble out and down the rocks. What would work to pile the rocks in that would be a good reservoir for the water to pool and get recirculated back up through the rock pile? I hope I have explained this well enough that you can see in your mind what I can envision.

Oh, rats! Sorry. First time I ever tried to insert a link. It got you to the right website but not the right date. You want the October 9, 2009 page. Go back to the site, search archive by month for October, 2009, then go to "older pages" until you get to the 9th and scroll down.

Or just do a google search for disappearing fountain and you'll find lots of links and pages.

It IS nifty! I LOVE it! that link is just what I have been looking for. I think a rubbermaid tub and an old freezer rack/shelf should work?
