Bamball's first nozzle!

So i bought these filters but one obvious problem... there is a hole in them! So I bought two sets...

I used one set to make a plug to fit in the other filter. Leaving two full filters.

This is the top of my nozzle. Two plexi-glass plates bolted together with the nozzle in the center and a large metal washer to secure it.

A close up of the nozzle. The brass piece is a nozzle from John on this forum. Thanks John!!!

Putting the filters in. Black (coarse) one first followed by the blue (fine).

Putting in the straws next. My filter was strong enough to put them right on top, no screen needed.

Stream on full output.

This is my fountain. It worked great on the first try! It consists of an 8 in steal tube and plexi-glass plates on top and bottom, bolted together. On the inside is about of 2 in of free space, then my two filters, then my straws and then about 1 in of free space. Any questions just ask!!
Thanks, Beau. cheers cheers cheers

Awesome! Congratulations! That looks really good. I'm impressed. Where did you get your foam? And what thickness did you use? Last question what's next?

Thanks! The foam is from Menards. They are supposed to be used for a large pump. They were 8 and 1/2 in diameter and 3 in height which is perfect because it allows for a tight fit.
Next I want to put it in my mom's garden. But I have to work some of the kinks first like putting in an air release valve.

I saw at home depot (or lowes) a pressure release valve that might work for our applications. I think that when the water is turned on the valve shuts and the water remains in the system, but when the water is off the water is allowed to leave the pipes through this valve preventing your sprinkler pipes from freezing. I purchased one in hopes of trying it out but haven't got around to it. I'm not 100% that it will work, but it might be a good place to start.

That looks interesting. I can't wait to see if it works!! What kind of glue do you use? Mine keeps leaking and I can't seem to get them all to stop.

I either use clear silicone (available from home depot/lowes by the paint area) or I use a marine epoxy.

Thank you!! I was thinking that it would be best to have filters, straws, exit. No mesh, nothing. I may be wrong but hey it worked for me Smile
