    Hey fellas. Any help would be appreciated here. Thanks
    I had a client ask me to install an antique statue water feature. It is a 3ft pedestal (3/4" hole cored) with a 39" marbel birdbath. In the center of this bath stands aittle naked kid holding a fish. The water comes out of a 1/4" copper tube in the fish's mouth. The hole under the statue goes about an inch then Ts off. I can get 1/2" tubing to this point but do not know how to proceed. Client said he saw it working in the antique store from where he bought it. Guess I can try and find out from them. Has anyone seen any thing like this? I can email some pics from my phone but I don think they would help. Thanks

    I used an aquabasin which is going to leave me about 2" wider than the dripping saucer (which I nothing!). But customer just wants it to drip (and there is only a 1/4" source) so the splash should be minimal. I'm going to add about 6" of liner around the 42" wide basin which should be large enough.

    I placed the pedestal in the center of the aquabasin after we sunk it. It seems a bit wobbly. I intend on adding some gravel to the center wherethere is an indention just for that. I hope that helps- a lot. I'd hate for a kid to knock this over and get crushed...

    Is it one piece or in sections?

    3 sections. The basin should hold 1200lbs. I
    thinking 1/2 poly tubing shoved in the hole with a waterproof gel applied around it. My email is maxwilbryan@ yahoo if you'd like to see a pic or 2. I'm looking at the cherub right now. Thanks
