Persian influence in the architecture reflects the owners’ proud heritage. The outside fountain consists of one, two or four fountains depending upon how you count them. There is a rectangle with 5 cascade bubbler jets with chlorinated water surrounded by a separate body of water that houses plants and fish. On the far side of the 40’ wide stairs is an exact copy.

 

The plumbing, by Living Water Creations, is designed with ‘balanced hydraulics’ so that all 10 fountain heads shoot the same height without individual valves. There needs to be equalizer pipes between the bubbler fountains and another for the fish water to insure the two bodies of water maintain equal water levels. James Nolan was general contractor.
