Professional Nozzles and Large Pond Fountain Jets...
Specifying the right nozzle or fountain jet for large installations can be quite complex since the finished effect is a function of the pump in use and the height/diameter of the fountain itself.
The comprehensive range of OASE nozzles we offer vary in price between a few hundred rands and about R15,000 for really big and complex fountain effects.
The principles in general are the same ...
- To what height do you want to pump the fountain
- What type of fountain effect is required and
- What diameter is required for the spray pattern.
The answer to these equations will determine the pump required. In this context and as described here all pumps are those from the Oase range and as such are matched perfectly to the specifications. It is possible to attach the same fountains to other pumps. it's just that in these cases you need to be able to match your own pump's hydraulic properties (head and volume flow rate) to the suggested Oase model. It may also be necessary to make changes to fittings depending upon your pump type.
An Example of an Oase Pump/Fountain Specification... The Vulcan 37-2.5K 3 tier fountain as shown below
|The Vulcan 37 fountain head has 37 fountain jet nozzles
which are used to produce the classical and pleasing 3 tier effect as
shown to the left. The table below shows the relationship between the
important variables and the pump required to create the desired effect.
