Nothing like the sound of running water to make a garden complete and of course the birds will just love it. Great job.

hi oldcrock... did u do this by yourself? If so, how did you do it? :-) I had a water feature before, but I am thinking of not using it anymore (pain to clean :-( ), so am thinking of reusing the old water pump, and just sort of "design" my own water feature, and yours is somewhat I had in mind :-)

Hi Jeanleach, yes I did, I bought a round plastic tub from B&Q about 2ft deep I placed my pump in the tub then had a piece of plastic that I placed on top of the tub, drilling holes in the plastic fitted some hose pipe to the pump placed some pebbles down on top of the plastic placing more pebbles in each pot and putting hose pipe through the holes in the pots then putting some sealant round the holes where the hose comes through each pot so the water flows over each pot back into the tub, I used a water proofer on the pots, you can use plastic pots, then filled with water attached a water feature off my pump onto the end on the hose where it comes through the top small pot to give it a cascade effect when running, hope this helps it is not difficult to make
