You can select from a wide variety of options when deciding on the type of pond fountain. Also referred to as garden fountains or lake fountains, pond fountains come in various sizes. These are not to be confused with waterfalls, which are formed by rocks, which water cascades over. Pond fountains can be stationary or floating. The disadvantage of stationary fountains is that when water rises in the pond, the fountain’s nozzle can become submersed. A floating fountain, held in place by a float with ropes attached, stays in the desired spot but rises and lowers with water levels.
