Architectural Fountains

This "Lobby Fountain" started it's design with the stainless steel center piece. When the Architect decided to incorporate the center piece into a fountain, they contacted Custom Fountains. With our help and design guidance, the finished fountain (left) truly became a work of art. The center cone and two of the leaves incorporate water activity.

When the staff of "Ohio Valley College" first contacted us, they had no real idea of what they were looking for. After many phone calls and several visits to our facility, they decided on the fountain pictured (right). The fountain is complete with a fiberglass pool, submersible pumps and lights. The "Cascade" nozzles provide heavily aerated and highly visible plumes of water.

Upon completion the fountain immediately became a focal point on campus.

The "Nemacolin Woodlands Resort" fountain (left) started out as a single nozzle in a thirty feet square pool. After several meetings the other nozzles were added for a much grander entrance. There are two identical fountains which can be viewed from the main lobby. One located in front of the "Falling Rock" resort and one located at the back of the resort.

After completion the town of Uniontown PA. constructed a scaled down version in the center of town.

Play fountains are becoming a very popular design. Designed with submersible pumps, this flush mounted patio fountain provides hours of enjoyment.

Even if you don't get wet.

Located in "Piqua" Ohio this fountain consists of a center cascade nozzle and seven frothy nozzles. The nozzles are powered using submersible pumps, and accented at night with underwater lights.

Design and Engineering Services

Each of our engineers have an average of twenty years of experience in the design of water features. Additional staff members in design, field supervision, and service combine their years of experience to produce fountain systems that are well conceived and properly implemented. Prefabricated commercial projects are supplied with system schematics and operation manuals.
From Artists rendering (left) Custom Fountains utilizes 2D computer aided drafting (right) "CAD" and 3D rendering to bring your project ideas to life. This allows designs to be considered before fabrication of your fountain begins. When the site already exists, we can work from photos or consumer video tape formats, ( CD, DVD),and place an operating fountain on your property. Designs can then be returned in any of these formats for family or board room review. Once the designs are completed we enhance them
with Component modeling (left) and completed 3D Renderings (right). Once you (the client) are happy with the results we begin fabrication.

When all of the pieces are fabricated, they are transported to the job site and assembled. During the assembly process the pumps, lights, drains, and electrical connections are installed. Upon completion the fountain is tested for proper operation (below).

Whatever your challenge may be, Custom Fountains can help you turn your idea into the fountain of your dreams.

Fiberglass Ponds

"If you only want to do it once -use fiberglass !"

Custom Fountains now offer our Exclusive "Modular Pieced Fiberglass pools" to create your very own design at a FRACTION of what a custom pond would cost!. Standard round ponds up to 30 feet in diameter. So make sure that you check out our Fiberglass pool section.

 

Easy Installation
Fiberglass ponds are self-supporting even when full of water. Installation can be as simple as setting the rigid pool on the ground and surrounding it with rock or block. In-ground installations are straight forward and reliable.

Professional Appearance
Unlike blow molded plastic ponds, careful grading and back fill is not required for the pond to hold its shape when filled. Rocks may be used to provide a natural appearance around a pool edge or on top of a cascade, without sagging, cracking or collapse. Fittings for pipe or electric conduit can be made an integral part of the pond.

Durable Operation and Lifetime Warranty
Fiberglass ponds are safe for fish and plants and may remain filled in winter. The smooth surface is easy to clean with a cloth and water. We provide a lifetime warranty against leaking or cracking under normal use to the original residential customer.

Liners

Liners may also be used to make ponds, waterfalls, and streams. We offer commercial grade rubber liners in .045 and .060 thickness. These materials resist puncture and remain flexible in freezing conditions. Unlike plastic liners, a special blanket or sand base is not required.

Components

Custom Fountains stocks hundreds of pump, nozzle, and lighting components. In addition to our own products we are a distributor for dozens of national and international fountain component manufacturers. This variety allows us to supply exactly the right equipment for your project. Equipment with a proven track record, whether you intend to build a small indoor fountain or fifty foot wide rapids.

Electronic Controls

We produce a full line of fountain controls ranging from simple level controls and wind speed units, through sophisticated animation systems that can choreograph hundreds of lighting and water channels to music.
