We have the ability to take your clients vision or conceptual drawing and engineer and fabricate truly custom, one of a kind pieces. We have had many years engineering, designing, and fabricating customs pieces of all shapes, sizes, and locations. We use the latest state of the art software to not only design and engineer the piece but to also provide full 3-D renderings of the product before it goes to fabrication. We will look at any idea or concept of designers and architects and make it a reality for our customers. We do require that all dealers do have at least a phone consultation with us prior to any quoting or promises being made to the customer. We can provide whatever support necessary for our dealers to sell and profit from custom pieces. If site visits or custom installations are required we will charge the client for travel and expenses. Very large scale project may require that we do the entire install, this cost will need to be built in to the quote. The biggest thing for our dealer partners to remember is not to be afraid of big custom water features , if your confidence in talking to designers and architects is not there then please refer that project back to us and a good referral fee will be paid.
There are basic requirements for the wall space and utilities that must be given to customers prior to them trying to install one of these indoor wall fountains. These will be briefly outlined for a general understanding for anyone wanting this product successfully.
All products are in some way mounted to the wall (with the exception of some custom pieces), therefore certain standards for wall structure are required. These requirements are very easy and any sales person can discuss this with clients, builders, or designers. The basic requirement for any product is that it is mounted on a wall with wood stud construction. Installing a wall fountain is engineered in such a way that as long as there are wood studs in the wall we can hit those studs for mounting. Steel Studs (common is commercial construction) can be reinforced either by providing a ¾” Plywood backing or by sandwiching the steel studs in the wall with 2 wooden ones. This gives the wall enough shear strength to hold any of our products. Knowing the construction of the wall is critical to a successful installation. This should be one of the first questions that a sales person should ask during the sales process.
Electrical Requirements and Options
The basic electrical configuration that is needed to run one of our products is a normal household electrical outlet on the wall generally in the middle of the area that the fountain will cover. This is usually an easy thing for a home owner or electrician to do. Our system then plugs into that outlet and the fountain is operated by two dime sized switches (one for light(s) and one for pumps) on the side channel of the fountain. This is the basic electrical for any of our products. Customers do have many options for electrical as well. Some clients will be installing their fountains in an art niche or some kind of recessed space that will make activating switches on the side of the fountain impossible. In this instance you need to instruct your clients to wire the outlets to two wall switches to operate the fountain. The switch for the light can also be put on a dimmer switch to dim the lights at night. If the fountain also incorporates a drain pump then another outlet will have to be added for a total of three outlets (lights, pumps, drain pump), this is usually quite a simple procedure.
All products can be plumber in to allow for automatic filling of the fountain, as well as, a forced drain system for easy draining of the fountain when the client is traveling or for maintenance of the piece. The requirement for automatic filling is a simple ¼” copper water line to be brought to the wall in about the same position as the electrical outlet, preferably just below the outlets. This water line will have to have a shut off valve somewhere on the line accessible to the client. The client needs to understand that they turn on the water to fill the fountain, and shut it off when the float valve installed in the fountain shuts off the water supply. Having the waterline charged at all times is a bad idea and can cause flooding if the float valve fails.A drain line can also be installed in the wall space. All that is required here is a ½” PEX line that is attached to any existing drain in the space. We will then install an extra pump in the trough of the system which when activated will pump the water from the trough through the PEX line and down the drain. This is an awesome feature for maintenance and people who travel. An automatic drain is very easy to install, especially with any new construction or renovations. Corporate installations are very challenging in the fact that no one takes care of the fountain. We suggest that all commercial applications have full utilities, so that the maintenance is easy. Full automation can also be attained be selling a system with timers and electronic solenoids that control the opening and closing of the water line at a certain time. This is the ultimate set up for a large commercial water feature. We also recommend that all of our fountain products be run with some kind of soft or de-mineralized water to avoid any kind of calcium build up. Dealers in the US also have access to Pro-Tec Fountain solution, this product also works very well to remove or prevent calcium and mineral build up. If sales people have any question regarding different plumbing set-ups feel free to call our technical support people to insure a proper utility set up.
