If you have exhausted your search on the internet for how to create a rain curtain effect then have seat and relax. Behold! this is the pvc portion of the rain curtain! Add it to your existing fountain, over your pool, in your gazebo or it makes a great outdoor group shower!
Let me start by saying, I am not a professional fountain business. I am a metal artist that created the metal structure for the metal water feature on this site and in the process developed a way to create a very cool rain curtain effect. If you feel that you’d like to try building this yourself then please check out my ebook that takes you step by step through the process. If you don’t want to hassle with it, then I can build it for you.
Each rain curtain effect kit is made to order. I don’t not maintain a stock of these ready to ship, so expect a turn around time of 2-3 weeks depending on how busy it gets here in the shop.
You are buying a length of pvc that has been drilled and tapped. Typically unless otherwise requested, you will receive a pvc pipe that has 3″ of no holes, nozzles for the length ordered and then 3″ of no holes. You will also receive one 90 degree fitting and one 90 degree fitting with a plug which allows you to flush the system as needed. You will need to glue these fittings on yourself with standard pvc glue.
You will choose the pvc diameter you need when ordering. I typically use an 1850 ghp direct drive fountain pump purchased online from Graystone Creations which requires 1. 25″ pvc pipe. If you have questions regarding pump size, please call Graystone Creations as they are the experts with regards to pump requirements.
If you are making this yourself, you may purchase the nozzles from online from Glennco Fittings, part #011307.
If you are buying a rain curtain effect kit that is longer than 72″, the pvc wil be cut in the middle and will require assembly with standard pvc glue. The coupler that joins the two halves will be drilled the same way the pvc pipe is drilled and there should not be any noticeable difference in the water streams.
Current lead time is approx. 2-3 weeks
