Disappearing Water Fountains

Add a little magic to your outdoor space.

Do you love the sound of running water, but don’t want the expense and upkeep of a traditional fountain? If so, a disappearing water fountain might be perfect for you! These fountains are easy to care for and make a beautiful addition to any yard or garden. Plus, they’re affordable and come in a variety of styles to suit your needs. This type of fountain pumps water up to the top and then flows down over the sides in an attractive display.

Benefits of Disappearing Water Fountains

A disappearing water fountain, sometimes called a disappearing waterfall or hidden pond fountain, is a type of fountain that recycles its water. The water is pumped from a hidden reservoir to the top of the fountain, where it flows down over rocks and other features before being collected and returned to the reservoir. The result is a continuous flow of water that creates the illusion of a natural waterfall.


In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, disappearing water fountains have a number of practical advantages. First, because they recycle their water, they are very efficient. Second, because the reservoir is hidden, they require less maintenance than other types of fountains. Finally, because the water is constantly moving, they are less likely to become contaminated with algae and other debris.


As a result, disappearing water fountains offer both aesthetic and practical advantages. If you’re looking for an eye-catching water feature that’s easy to care for, a disappearing fountain may be a perfect choice.
