i am posting the procedure for making tabletop fountain.i have made easiest possible description.you are free to ask any problem.
As the name says,these fountains can be placed indoors on table tops,corners,stairs side,or as you like.these are portable and light weight.very easy to handle.
Thermacoal sheet:2” thick:1,and 1”thick : 1
Round,or oval,or square aluminium shallow tray with a minimum height of 6”.
White cement:7 kg.approx.
Enamel paints:brown,white,green,blue,each 50 gms packing.
Clear varnish:100gms approx.
electric motor:that used for coolers.it throws the water upto a ht of 3-4ft.
Green artificial grass,coconut trees,decorative figures,houses,animals,birds etc what ever you want to place according to your choice.
How to make a paste of cement?
For example,take 250 ml water in a plastic container.add 50 ml of fevicoal to it.stir well.now slowly add white cement to the liquid stirring to a smooth batter like consistency of cake.thick batter.this you have to make only in small quantities because it hardens very fast.
Now,make this paste.line the aluminium container with fevicoal and apply this paste as ineer coating.this gives protection to the pot against water.
Draw an outline on 2”thermacoal a bit outer than the size of pot.cut it by using cutter.
Mark the desired size to be left for the insertion of motor at the back.
Mark another cut for the fall to fall in the pot.
Cut atleast two sheets of 2”thick size.we need them to be placed on the top of container as the base for the fountain.
Apply the cement paste on both sides of sheets.and paste them together.now apply another coat of cement paste on the outer side of sheet and place it on the top of container.
Leave it for a day to dry.
Next day,place 1”thermacoal slabs cut into desired sizes as steps upto a height of atleast
15”.we will place a large slab on these steps to raise our house.
On the other side,prepare for the waterfall.you can make steps here too,or a simple stone wall.our fountain will fall as a large water fall.
To make a stone wall,break small pieces,square in shape(uneven sized).dip them in the batter of white and grey cement.and place one on other,.
When you have completed all the placements,now we will waterproof the fall.it should not split water on other things.
Place stones on the outer sides of the water fall area.pour enough white and grey cement mixer so that all the holes and openings are sealed.
Let dry for a day.
On the top of the fall area,place a small piece of 2”thick thermacoal.make a hole big enough to insert a flexible pipe for the motor.cut the pipe according to the height of fountain.
Place stones to hide the opening of fall.this looks otherwise as a tap running instead of a proper water fall.
Let dry for a day.
Next day have a trial for any leakage.
If any,pour cement paste on any possible openings.
When completely satisfied,give a first coat of white enamel paint.let dry.
Next day,colour the stones with brown,waterfall area with light blue,grass with green and so on.
Now,you can decorate at your will using fevicoal and plastic glue.
Apply a coat of clear varnish to give an instant glow and finishing effect.
NOW,YOU CAN PROUDLY PLACE THIS WATERFALL IN YOUR LIVING AREA AND ENJOy THE MELODIOUS SOUND OF WATER TRICKLING IN YOUR EARS WITH YOUR EYES CLOSE FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.ACCORDING TO FENGSHUI,YOU SHOULD PLACE THIS WATERFALL ON NORTH-EAST DIReCTION.AND RUN IT ATLEAST ONCE A DAY.THIS WILL INCREASE THE CIRCULATION OF MONEY AND PEACE IN YOUR HOME.
