The story behind Blue Thumb
Water Feature Inspirations
Basalt fountains elicit a response similar to viewing ocean waves or sitting beside a mountain stream. The movement of water over natural stone brings the basalt alive, creating a soothing, contemplative atmosphere.
The small size of a Basalt Fountain means you can build and enjoy a beautiful fountain anywhere in your yard front or back! You can create one in as little space as 36” x 36”. These are great on patios and decks too!
Taking care of your Basalt Fountain is easy. Filling the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for evaporated water is all that’s required. Or you can install an automatic fill valve and eliminate virtually all maintenance!
The typical professional installation of a Basalt Fountain will range from $1000 to $4000+ depending on the size basalt your choose and whether you want a single basalt or triple basalt fountain.
If you live in an area where freezing can occur you will want to simply remove the pump from the basin and store it indoors for the winter. The basalt itself can be left as is on the basin as it is real rock. No need to drain the basin as we recommend the water be allowed to freeze.
