PondWorks was involved in a restoration project at the University of Pennsylvania’s Morris Arboretum www.morrisarboretum.org that took place in late 2006. The Pennock Walk Project included two fountains that needed to be restored to their original functions. The first project was a long copper lined fountain that contained 15 fountain jets. A new copper liner and a new filtration system were installed. In addition to installing completely new infrastructure for the circulation and filtration of both fountains PondWorks also added fiber optic lighting to the jets to illuminate them at night. The second project was an historic marble fountain that had been reconstructed. A copper spray ring consisting of 6 jets was installed into the fountain. After 2 months of work, the fountains were ready to be turned on. We were extremely happy with the way this project went and the smiles it brought to the avid gardeners and visitors.
PondWorks traveled to Atlantic City to waterproof an indoor fountain at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. Although the temptation of gambling was there, PondWorks remained focused on the project at hand. The fountain is located within an indoor garden which has a glass bridge crossing the center. After the routine plumbing work was done, PondWorks began prepping the fountain to be waterproofed. This consisted of sanding, masking, acid washing, and adding a bonding agent. After the Super Sealer bonding agent had cured, the Vortex spray on polyurea liner was installed. A Granitex top coat was then applied to achieve the desired effect.
