How to Build an Easy Water Fountain

How to Build an Easy Water Fountain

A quick and easy demonstration of a simple garden fountain. Adding a fountain to your garden helps attract birds, butterflies, beneficial insects, and even a few nocturnal animals looking for a drink. This garden fountain project is quick and easy to make and doesn’t cost much at all especially if you have a tub already.

    Great idea & great to see you Scott. We are enjoying our bird bath in our back yard. Have enjoyed watching this video & to see the little robin enjoying your invention is pleasing.

    I’m planning on doing this project within the next week or 2. The links seem to be outdated, wondered if you could refresh the Amazon links? Thanks! Wonderful project.

    You have an awesome channel!

    Do I need to add anything to the water to keep it pristine?
    Also, could this be typically moved indoors in the winter and placed among plants as a water feature? Sorry if that’s a dumb question. πŸ™‚

    can’t find the link, can you show it to me here for the pump

  9. Teanna Byerts on April 6, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    awesome! Now I want a solar powered version. I have no electrical hookup for the garden.

  10. Naomi Swanson on April 6, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Thanks for the inspiration, Scott!! Wondering if the pot has to be galvanized or would it work with a large ceramic pot?

    Hi Scott! What size bucket is this? The Amazon link no longer works

  13. Cristina Cuevas Vera on April 6, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Hi Scott! Great video. Does the water renovate itself? How could I do fountain where the water renovate itself? Sorry, if the question is silly, I am pretty new in garden staff.

  14. R F22 on April 6, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Going to make one. Thank you!

  15. Judith Curtis on April 6, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Could this be done with a soler-powered pump?…. I don’t have access to electricity where I would like to put it. Is there such a thing as a solar pump?!

  16. Doris Murdock on April 6, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Should you use regular water or distilled water? Thanks

  17. Sherry C on April 6, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    You’ve inspired me to try this by making it look so easy! Thank you

  18. Umbrella Watch on April 6, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Thank you so much for this simple tutorial! After talking about a birdbath fountain forever, I followed your directions and had it done in 3 hours – including going to the hardware store for all the parts! Finches were in the water within 15 minutes. Amazing…

  21. Kai on April 6, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Beautiful. 😊

  22. timventura on April 6, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Very nice video with the steps clearly and simply discussed. Thank you.

  30. Ally Wright on April 6, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    If this has already been answered, I apologize for duplicating. The pump doesn’t come with the tubing. Can you recommend – a link would be great! – tubing for this pump? Thanks!

  31. Homestead Mornings on April 6, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    What a fun project. Can’t wait to start on my birdbath/fountain! Thanks again πŸ™‚

  32. Mike Hess on April 6, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Scott, your back yard is looking real good. And you have given Gail a project for our birdbath.

  33. Diana C on April 6, 2022 at 7:32 pm
