The construction principles of fountain technology and water bodies arise from the desired objective. It always involves putting water into motion in order to produce a beautiful, eye-catching water pattern. To achieve this, adequate quantities of water must first be available. In the ideal case, a natural water reservoir in the form of a pond or lake will be available.
Usually, however, a water reservoir must be constructed artificially and be filled from public water supply. Larger basins are mostly of concrete or brick, but there are also ready-made basins of considerable size made from fiberglass or similar synthetics. Lakes and ponds are mostly modeled as more or less deep hollows in the ground and sealed with a membrane of bitumen or clay Once the matter of the water reservoir is settled, there is the question of the movement of the water and the water display.
