The sound of flowing water can be soothing and relaxing. Many people enjoy the sound of a water fountain. There are several tricks of making it louder.
You can increase the diameter of the basin, replace the stream with a higher pressure nozzle or place it next to a large wall or building and let more water fall on top of each other. Understanding the purpose of a fountain will help you to determine how loud or quiet the sound should be.
Three ways to make a water fountain sound louder
There are few ways to make a water fountain sound louder:
- to increase the diameter of the basin
- to replace the stream with a higher pressure nozzle
- to place it next to a large wall or building
Increase the diameter of the basin to make sound louder
It is possible to increase the diameter of the basin. This will lead to a louder sound because more water will be flowing at one time. The water will also have more kinetic energy because of the increased width.
Diameter comprises the length, width, and depth of an object. The diameter of a water fountain can be increased by digging up the ground around it to allow more space for the basin to hold more water. There are three different types of basins that can be used: sunken, elevated or table top.
Increase the pressure of the stream to make sound louder
One way that has been proven effective in making a fountain louder is by increasing the pressure of the stream. The pressure coming from a nozzle can be stronger and thus can amplify more noise of water.
There are thousands of different tubes that can be used to shoot water into your fountain, but not all of them will give you as much noise as others. You can find one that makes a lot of sound if you look hard enough, but it is not impossible to make the fountain loud with any nozzle.
Place next to a large wall or building to make sound louder
If you are looking for ways to make your fountain louder, all you have to do is place it next to a large wall or building. You can also place it near some kind of natural cliff too, like a mountain.
A location of a fountain that is next to a building or wall will cause sound amplification because it reflects and amplifies the noise of the surface, so it gets louder.
