A glass wall water fountain adds elegance to any setting or room, be it at home or in the office. In fact, apart from adding to the beauty, glass wall water fountains bring a sense of comfort with the constant soothing sound of flowing water. The best part about glass wall water fountains is you can make and mount them on a wall all by yourself. If you want to know how to make and mount a glass wall water fountain, follow the instructions given below.

Step 1 - Prepare the Glass

The first step in making a glass wall water fountain is to drill a small hole right in the centre of the glass sheet. Once you are done, shape, size and attach small wooden blocks, one at each corner of the glass sheet. Complete the first phase by adding sea glass to the front of the glass sheet using waterproof adhesive. You will find a number of sea glass options in the market. Be sure to choose a style that suits your needs. Also be sure to leave the small drilled hole on the glass sheet uncovered.

Step 2 - Set the Planter

Now, at the spot where you want to install the fountain, build the glass wall water fountain’s water reservoir. This can be done with the help of a planter. Be sure to firmly secure the planter on the wall. Make sure it is on the spot where you want the wall fountain to be located.

Step 3 - Add Plastic Tubing

Once the water reservoir is in place it is time to take care of the tubing. Depending on the size of your fountain design, prepare the plastic tubing you need to fit through the small hole drilled on the glass. Thread the tubing from the back side of the glass sheet and secure with waterproof adhesive.

Step 4 - Measurements, Brackets and Mounting

It is now time to mount the wall fountain. Begin this process by preparing the support brackets for the glass wall water fountain. The simplest way to do this is by taking measurements on the wall of your choice using a tape measure. Once you make all the necessary markings along the wall, it’s time to mount the pre-purchased brackets; use the drills and screws to install the brackets on the wall. Once you’ve secured the brackets, mount the glass wall water fountain.

Step 5 - Connect the Pump

Installing the pump is the final step in making and mounting a glass wall water fountain. Place the fountain pump in the hanging planter that you installed Step 2. Once in place, connect the tubing to the pump and add distilled water to the planter. Then, connect the pump to an electrical outlet and switch it on.

Step 6 - Accessorize

You can also add decorative items like stones, colorful plants, fake moss, etc., to your wall water fountain. Simply place them according to your style and taste.
