Where did Large Outdoor Fountains Begin?

A fountain, an incredible piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also propel water high into the air for a noteworthy effect.

Pure practicality was the original purpose of fountains. Water fountains were connected to a spring or aqueduct to supply potable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Up to the late nineteenth century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and more elevated than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow downwards or jet high into the air.Large Outdoor Fountains Begin? 14774576666905.jpg Fountains were an excellent source of water, and also served to decorate living areas and memorialize the designer.
