FOUNTAINHEADS

We offer three superior fountain pumps (Nautilus 500, 1600, 2600) that include everything required for a plug-in fountain system: a reliable energy-efficient pump, an extremely effective slotted strainer housing with extendable wings, a built-in flow-control valve, and a plastic multi-tier fountainhead mounted on an adjustable extension attached to a swivel joint. For a spectacular nighttime effect, an adjustable low-voltage light can be attached directly to the top of Nautilus pumps.

Oase Nautilus Kit

We also stock ten professional-quality fountainheads made from brass, stainless-steel, or sturdy plastic, all with one-inch threads. Comet creates a pencil-thin jet of water that can be angled up to twelve degrees: multiple Comets are used in groups to create rings or arches. Frothy, Cascade, and Geyser create vertical water displays with minimal horizontal spread. Trumpet and Lava create displays that spread wider than their height: children delight in poking their fingers through the spherical sheet of water created by Lava. Vulcan creates a multi-tiered effect with both vertical rise and horizontal spread. Bursting Stars creates a spectacular multi-tiered rotating display with small droplets that sparkle in the light. These fountainheads can be used with Nautilus pumps or with many other pumps we can provide. We can larger versions of many fountainheads along with powerful external pumps to create spectacular public displays.

The chart below shows the approximate performance of the Nautilus 1600 and 2600 pumps with a variety of compatible fountainheads. Heavy-water brass versions of the Frothy and Vulcan are also available but are not shown because they require larger pumps.
