Materials and Tools:
drill and paddle bit to match tubing
fountain pump and tubing
1. Turn the finial upside down on your work table and drill a hole into the base for the tubing to go through. We used a 5/8-inch paddle bit here. Make sure your paddle bit matches up to the size of your tubing to prevent leakage.
2. For the base, we used an old planter, but you can use any bowl or container that is at least 5 inches deep and waterproof. Place the pump into the planter and make sure the suction cups stick to the bottom.
3. Connect the tubing to the pump and fill the planter with rocks. The rocks do double duty as they cover the pump and also add stability.
4. Once all the rocks are in, thread the tube through the finial and cut any excess off the top.
5. Simply fill the bowl with water and plug in the pump. Remember to change the water frequently and to add just a dash of bleach to prevent mold.
