Jumping Water

Great Forum.

Has anyone installed or thought of installing "jumping water" in a residential yard?

Thanks,
Hunter J

Thanks for the reply

WeatherMan,

Are you installing what one company calls a leap frog valve or are you building your own valves and jumping a stream of water from point to point etc. giving the impression that the water is jumping around the yard. Just curious.

Thanks,
Hunter J

I have allways built my own valves, I have installed jumpers, bullets, jets, bubbles, I have even installed them to jump with music. Kinda fun to do

I have pics up of some of my creations, but since lawnsite changed the rule on the size of the pics allowed, I now have to go through and shrink them all. Maybe on a day its raining I will try to get some on here

Ok, am ignorant, Jumping water? I think i have a guess, but not sure. IF! Notice the big if? IF it is what i am thinking it is where you make water shoot out in a controlled stream to anothere spot. I saw a special on one that had two ponds with a walkway down the middle and the water shot overhead. Looked really cool.

That's it

That is what I am talking about. I was just curious if any one had installed them since it would require a reservoir and pump along with electrical/pheumatics for the cut-off on each valve or one pump with supply and return lines to each valve.
I have built and tested a valve and liked it.


Just a curious homeowner
