Alchemic Fountain Design 4 Alchemic Fountain Design 5

LEFT: This one is an inversion of the previous deign (see last post), where the circle and pentagon manifolds swap place. The pentagon manifold now gets the solenoid-controlled valves, reducing their number from 10 to 5:

Breakdown:
2 manifolds
5 solenoid-controlled valves
16 nozzle
3 variable speed pumps

Fogger machine for surface effects
Fibre optic fountain bowl lighting
Water jet lights (halogen? diode?)

RIGHT: This one adds 5 extra valves/nozzles, though I haven’t worked out exactly what should control them. The simplest solution would be to connect them to the circle manifold, but they could also be connected in parallel to their adjacent pentagon valves so that the same solenoid could control two valves.This is the version I like best as it has the potential of incorporating all the shapes I envisaged: pentagon, star, circle.
