We think that the best fountain displays on the market are offered by Kasco Marine. Competitors can reach higher heights. True. And competitors often include nice displays, but the most intricate displays are those by Kasco, when using their premium nozzle line.
As noted elsewhere in our blogs, for aeration to be effective lots of water needs to escape from the pump's outlet. To get nozzles to spray high, more restriction must be placed on the pump by making nozzle holes small. A 5,000 gallon per hour (or 83 gallon per minute, same thing) pump might only pump out 1,500 gallons per hour once the water escapes the nozzle. Kasco always tries to balance aeration and decoration, even for their decorative fountains. So though they don't shoot as high as some competitors, the holes are large enough to allow greater discharges of water volume.
These premium nozzles are now available for all of the Kasco JF (decorative) models. Aerating fountain models only provide a "V" display. But decorative (display) fountains come with several nozzles PLUS you can add a premium nozzle if desired.
