I found this mosaic bubbler project from Beckett water pumps and decided to share it so you can make a water feature for your home, too. It imitates the sound of the waves by shooting a jet of water to the top then letting it trickle gently over the sides.
I plan to cover a plain terracotta pot in small glass tiles in coastal colors. But broken pieces of china in shades of Oriental blues or romantic pinks would look great too.
What You Need:
• Pot (deep enough to house 10” pump) with a bottom drainage hole
• Small mosaic tiles or other embellishments for pot, if desired
• Ceramic adhesive and tinted grout, if desired
• Large bowl without a drainage hole
• Beckett® Container Garden Fountain Kit #7093110
• A short length of Beckett® black vinyl tubing
• Decorative glass beads or small rocks
1. Decorate pot as desired and let adhesive dry thoroughly.
2. Place the pump in the bottom of the bowl and run the electrical cord over the side. Fountain kit contains two different nozzles. We used the waterbell attachment. For an upward spray you can choose the trumpet nozzle.
3. Measure the height of the pot and cut the vinyl tubing accordingly. Attach the tubing to the pump.
4. Place the pot upside down inside the bowl and feed the vinyl tubing through the drainage hole.
5. Fill bowl with water. Plug in pump to test water flow.
6. Trim excess tubing off top, if necessary.
7. Add decorative glass beads along the top for added decorative flair.
