Last year we added the Super Shooters, and what a great response from the visitors.
The water show originates from our front yard pond measuring about 10 feet in diameter. Leaving the pond is a 40 foot stream.
The pond contains 10 fountains that dance water 15' in to the air and 6 Super Shooters that blast a column of water 70' into the night sky.
The entire system is custom made by us in our garage. All of this is accomplished using air; no water pumps or city supplied water pressure.
The main fountains are 16" tall, constructed out of 2" diameter aluminum tube with a 1/4" wall. The top of the fountain is milled
with a 1/8" nozzle and a recess for 50 LED lights covered by a waterproof Lexan cap.
The base of the fountains are attached to a pivot system and a servo allowing the fountains to move and sway the water to the music.
Water is continually made available to the fountains through a group of four tanks. Water enters the tanks through pneumaticly cylinder controlled gate valves
and pressurized using compressed air. The tanks' valves, pneumatic cylinders and sensors are controlled from a purpose built
electronic circuit board. The fountains' water stream is turned on and off using valves controlled by Light-O-Rama ®.
The Super Shooters are 16" tall, using a 3.5" diameter aluminum tube, with a 1/2" nozzle and a LED light recess milled into the top.
These fountains auto fill through a check valve at its base. Compressed air is provided via a 20 gallon tank and a 1" diameter hose.
The fountains' LED lights keep the stream of water lighted for most of the 70' flight. As with the main fountains, the Super Shooters are triggered
by Light-O-Rama ®.
