Waterbell Tower Fountain with Sound and Program Control

Waterbell Tower Fountain
with Sound Activation and Programmed Control
14.5" x 14.5" x 40"h



The waterbell modulating tower fountain is stained either in a deep "french roast coffee" (shown) or in rich cherry finish. The body of the fountain is fabricated in veneered wood ply for rigidity and dimensional stability and finished in satin finish polyester. The fountain body has built in levelling feet. The water reservoir is double coated in marine resin.

The tower supports a high-precision, adjustable waterbell nozzle driven by our patented electronic controller. Water exiting the nozzle forms a multitude of dynamically changing shapes. We program the controller to give slowly changing waterbell shapes interspersed with fast changing behavior. In the later case, complex concave to convex shapes can be generated. The fountain can also respond to environmental sound, music or speech. You can view some of the effects by clicking on the two video links below.

The patented electronics and submersible pump are low voltage, highly reliable and robust.

Note that the conceptual design and engineering implementation of this fountain is scalable. A unique version can be fabricated from a variety of materials including stainless steel and programmed for a variety of water sheet behaviors depending on the design of the nozzle. Multiple interacting water bells can be considered. Note that since the water bell is essentially a thin water sheet, it is not recommended for areas subject to wind.
