Dry deck fountains are currently very popular and you can find this type of interactive play fountains in various locations, from public parks and parks of shopping malls and water parks, where they provide interactivity for young children. A common factor frequently found in these fountains is that they seek to bring rhythm and movement to the water, turning the space around them into an attractive place for visitors.
What is Dry deck fountains?
Dry deck fountains are characterized by having a hidden structure, below our feet, which means that we can have a fountain in the same space as a dry environment, when the fountain is not running. We could use the space for other events when fountain is switched off. The entire network of piping, cabling, nozzles been placed in hidden structure. Obviously it would have access openings to service the hidden space.
We have Various type of nozzles for different spray type. With different connection sizes different height shall be achieved in relation with selection of pumps. This allows to achieve different dry deck feeling in every project. Every project is unique as its shape of the layout, orientation of nozzles (which clone the shape of water body) & the type of nozzles. The spray height of nozzle, the movement of nozzle can be variated with quantity of pumps.
In dry deck fountain we shall able to achieve
Nozzles moving up & down in a SET,
Multiple SET of nozzles moving up & down by different pumps,
Variation in movement of the nozzles,
Individual nozzles controlled independently but with a common pump for a SET of nozzles
Individual nozzles controlled independently with independent pumps.
All these options comes with lights as that is spectacular in evenings.
The below PATTERN display would allow to understand better.
Different possibilities of dry deck fountain
Two major possibilities on civil point of construction.
For first option, we use a concrete channel, a structure that contains the water for the proper operation of the fountain. This water returns to the tank through a grid placed around it, and through the dry fountain kit, which includes a grill for return and drainage to the tank.
For second option, we use PITS on the locations of nozzles which comes with incoming water supply, Electrical supply & drain provisions. A balancing tank been kept separately in suitable location where after is stored & send back through nozzles & circulates.
The use of a Filtration system is essential & mandatory for better performance of Dry deck nozzles.
Four major possibilities on Nozzle operation point of view
For First simple & competitive option, we use set of nozzles with single or multiple pumps with VFD.
For Second option, we use individual nozzles controlled by TWIN solenoid valves with single or multiple pumps with VFD.
For Third option, we use SPECIAL WATERSWITCH nozzles synced with single or multiple pumps with VFD.
For Fourth option, we use nozzles with individual DMX pumps. This Pattern shall give opportunity “to create FANTASTIC CHOREOGRAPHIC effect”
All four options comes with lights & SS grating as flush arrangement.
