If you are searching for something aesthetically pleasing as well as a way to maintain your house cool, indoor wall fountains are an ideal option. Applying the same methods used in air conditioners and evaporative coolers, they are a great alternative to cool your home. You can also save on your utility costs because they consume less energy.

A fan can be used to blow fresh, dry air over them in order to create a cooling effect. Either your ceiling fan or air from a corner of the room can be used to augment flow. It is essential to ensure that air is always moving over the top of the water. It is the nature of fountains and waterfalls to generate cooled, fresh air. A big community fountain or a water fall will produce a sudden chill in the air. Situating your fountain cooling system in a spot that is especially hot decreases its effectiveness. Your fountain will be less reliable if you put it in the sunlight.

Water Delivery Strategies in Historic Rome

With the manufacturing of the first elevated aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Anio Vetus in 273 BC, individuals who lived on the city’s hillsides no longer had to be dependent only on naturally-occurring spring water for their requirements. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the lone techniques obtainable at the time to supply water to locations of greater elevation. In the very early sixteenth century, the city began to make use of the water that flowed below the ground through Acqua Vergine to furnish drinking water to Pincian Hill.Water Delivery Strategies Historic Rome 14774576666905.jpg As originally constructed, the aqueduct was provided along the length of its channel with pozzi (manholes) constructed at regular intervals. The manholes made it less demanding to clean the channel, but it was also possible to use buckets to extract water from the aqueduct, as we witnessed with Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi when he bought the property from 1543 to 1552, the year he died. He didn’t get an adequate amount water from the cistern that he had built on his property to collect rainwater. Thankfully, the aqueduct sat just below his residence, and he had a shaft opened to give him access.
