Heron's fountain with bell siphon
« on: December 30, 2019, 05:40:35 PM »
Hi folks

New here and learning about gravity fountains, siphons etc (with the aim of eventually building some sort of garden feature).

Just wondering if the bottom chamber of a heron's fountain (the one that fills) could utilise a bell siphon once it reaches a certain level, and if there'd be enough pressure(?) in the siphon to pump it back up to the middle chamber.

This has literally just popped into my head and I haven't given it much thought so feel free to shoot me down 😁 but just wondered if anyone had gone down this route before. Guessing it'd only rise to the top level of the riser 🤔 but I don't know for sure... Anyone tried something like it before?

I'll have to draw a pic if I'm not making myself clear enough.
