Design Challenges

Removal and replacement of an old decrepit water feature with a new larger Water Feature concept from Fong Hart Schneider Partners, Architects.  Replacing the existing equipment and designing the new larger mechanical systems into an existing underground basement facility with limited space was greatest challenge.

System Statistics

  • Mechanical: 32HP Pumping, over 2500 gallons per min. water FX flow.  1440watts of WRGB LED Lighting within basin walls and below bowl weir and jets.
  • Creative: Staying within limited equipment space designing the required GPM (flow rate) consumed by the jets and weir steps.

Design Challenges

  • 15 year old water feature renovation.  Re-designing and engineering a static weir flow water feature into a show feature into an existing fountain basin that is less than 500 sq ft.  Adding 10 variable controlled 2hp pumps, 40 jets and 41 RGB LED light fixtures.
  • In addition fitting all of the above into a relatively small existing equipment vault took hours of layout and reconfiguration.

System Statistics

Mechanical: 35HP Pumping,  2000 gallons per min. water FX and weir flow.

Electronic:  Show Control system employs Art-Net DMX over IP network.

Creative: Integrates H2Oarts Musical Water Feature Automation System for spontaneous musical choreography.

  • 15 year old water feature renovation.  A complete revision of the original mechanical systems operational concept and control in regard to basin flow and water effects representing the Dolphins in active play.  Refurbished and reused part of the existing pumping systems providing a more efficient design and operating system in regard to plumbing and electrical use.  Original horsepower use was 24 now only 10HP with improved water effects. Original lighting was (qty-3 fixtures @1500watts total, white light only),  Now (qty-18 LED RGB full color light fixtures operating only at 540 watts of power)

System Statistics:

  • Mechanical:10HP Pumping,  1000 gallons per min. water FX and weir flow.
  • Creative:Current flow and disguising piping systems/jets within the water feature basins representing the active play of the Bronze Dolphins.
