Early efforts...

Post  Adman on Fri Apr 10, 2009 6:04 pm

So I'm a complete newbie at this, but a couple hours and a few buck at the hardware store have gotten me hooked!

The flow looks really good at low pressure levels, but not good at higher levels. I still need a better output nozzle, but is using 4" tubing a limiting factor?

Hi there Smile

Thanx for sharing the video !
The flow looks great..

I have a 4" tube myself, but I wonder if I should try a 8" ..
Then it don't have to be so long !

What do you have inside your Tube ?
And what method did you use to seal the top and bottom ? Smile

Btw: you have a nice garden with a beautiful big tree

Inside is a layer of scouring pads. Then about 1000 coffee "stir stick" type straws. The straws are held in place by screen, and the screen is held in place by rings. It all follows the directions in the "laminar fountain for $15" video, pretty much.

The top and bottom of the tube are not sealed, yet. The endcaps are just stuck on by hand.

Thanks! Smile
