Specialty materials offer more variation in water fountains than what was once possible. Plastic floor fountains, resin floor fountains and fountains made of other materials such as acrylic are durable and reliable. They also allow the emulation of other materials, such as stone. A fiberglass floor fountain or a acrylic floor fountain offers the same practical advantages. All of these fountains can be constructed in very unique and interesting forms.
While some individuals may assume that a plastic floor fountain would look immediately less expensive than their metal and stone cousins, this is not the case. Plastic floor fountains are oftentimes used where weight is a concern or where a desired look would not be realistic using metal and wood.
Acrylic fountains oftentimes incorporate large transparent sections. This allows the same effect as glass at a fraction of the weight and with much more durability. These styles also offer the owner the opportunity to experiment with light to bring out elements of the design. An acrylic fountain is oftentimes emblazoned with corporate logos, which make for a very upscale effect.
Resin floor fountains and fiberglass floor fountains are particularly durable. In some cases, they are preferable for fountains that are exposed to the elements more. These designs are easy to clean and resist many of the effects of the environment. Their light weight makes them easy to locate and set up.
Many of the plastic fountains, resin fountains or acrylic fountains are eligible for free shipping. Like all of the fountains, they are built to the highest standards of quality and are easy to setup. Maintenance is minimal and the entire unit is self-contained, requiring no plumbing. The pump elements run on standard household current and provide reliable service for many years.
