I recently acquired a beautiful cast bronze garden fountain and need some help setting it up. Originally, there were 4 children dancing around the edge of the basin, but all that remains of them are their feet. LOL I'll grind off the remnants sometime in the future.
Anyway, as you can see from the 3rd photo, there are two large (almost 1", maybe 7/8") pipes in the base. One is the basin overflow and the other is the supply, obviously. My questions are-
1. What kinds of pump will I need to push water through the 18 nozzles in photo# 1?
2. Is there some kind of reservoir that the pump sits in?
3. How to hook any pump up to such large pipes? Most of the fountains I've had in the past had very small outlets. maybe a 1/4"?
This is a beautiful fountain and I'd really like to get it running properly.
Thank you all for your help,
