How to make a spring with your hands?
The first thing is to define the location of the spring. It is best to install an artificial spring near the recreation area, that would give the terrain a more unusual landscape design. Please note that, that place under the spring must be visible from all sides of the garden plot.
Next, mark out the contours of a future spring. Contours of the spring will be the size of the container (if the barrel, its diameter). After the outlines are marked, take up the shovel and bayonet pulls any pit, that would set it capacity was at the level of the earth's surface.
That would align the bottom of the pit, add a pillow of sand, then the bottom and wall thoroughly tamp.
Place the container in a pit. Formed between the container walls and the walls of the pit, the gaps fill with sand and tamp.
In a container put the water pump and pour water.
On top of the tank, install a metal grate around the middle and cut with snips a small hole.
On top of the grid proselyte fiberglass and a hole cut in it in the same place, as in the metal lattice.
Print created holes through the pipe of the pump to the surface and set her a special nozzle.
Realize first start the pump, during which it is necessary to adjust the direction of the jet and the height of vypiska.
Well, in the end, decorate artificial spring decorative materials, such as natural stone or decorative gravel. In addition, the spring can be improved moisture-loving plants and small architectural forms.
You can make the spring more unusual: to create the effect of vypiska water from the stone. This idea will give your a spring giving a more unique look, although the technology of creating not too much will change.
The preparatory work and the basic process remains the same: Roy pit, installed capacity, submersible pump etc. Will differ only in the process of decorating the spring. Instead of small architectural forms right in the middle of the spring will stand a great natural stone (the main thing, what would the grid withstood its weight). All you need, this drill stone vertical hole, diameter which needs quite a bit wider than the diameter of the pipe pump. Next, the tube is passed through the stone and cut the balance of the output level of the pipe of stone. In the result stream will flow as if from a stone, thereby attracting the attention of visitors and tourists on the country territory.
That's all in the spring at the dacha with his hands. After studying this material, you can start creating your own artificial spring in his summer cottage!
