Design Challenges

Removal and replacement of an old decrepit water feature with a new larger Water Feature concept from Fong Hart Schneider Partners, Architects.  Replacing the existing equipment and designing the new larger mechanical systems into an existing underground basement facility with limited space was greatest challenge.

System Statistics

  • Mechanical: 32HP Pumping, over 2500 gallons per min. water FX flow.  1440watts of WRGB LED Lighting within basin walls and below bowl weir and jets.
  • Creative: Staying within limited equipment space designing the required GPM (flow rate) consumed by the jets and weir steps.
