Water Features

and associated products & services

Be sure to consult relevant authorities about safety regulations which may apply to to water features where you live. Building, plumbing, electrical and other regulations may also apply.

Another danger with static water-filled objects is that they could become breeding spots for mosquitoes. Small features can be filled for special occasions and emptied afterwards. Chemical treatments may be an option if water is going to be standing for an extended period. Large tubs and ponds may be able to accomodate small fish that feed on mosquito larvae. Ask your local aquarium supplier about suitable species and their care.


Brisbane to sparkle with new and revitalised fountains

Victims of the drought, three fountains in Brisbane's CBD will be flowing again by the end of 2015. This includes installation of "Water smart" systems to conserve water. The designer of the EE McCormick Place fountain (Upper Roma Street) has also been consulted to help restore the original 1971 vision for the project. Emma Miller Place (Roma Street) and Mooney Memorial Fountain (Queen and Eagle Streets) are the other two locations to be refurbished. Brisbane City Council has also committed to constructing a new fountain somewhere in the city.

Water returns to Brisbane fountains

Brisbane City Council have allocated funds to restoring water to fountains in EE McCormick Place in Upper Roma Street, Emma Miller Place in Roma Street and Mooney Memorial Fountain at Queen and Eagle Streets. They had been decommissioned in response to drought conditions. The Lord Mayor also wants a new water feature somewhere in the CBD.

Wembley Falls to receive makeover

Wembley Falls at Logan Central is to undergo refurbishment, although the waterfall, which was switched off during the drought, will not be switched back on. Instead, plants in the new landscaping will be chosen to evoke the cascading nature of the original falls. With these and other developments, Logan City Council is certain that Webley Falls will be even more popular for wedding photography than it has been in the past. More information at the Council's website here: Water stops but flowers set to flourish. (April 2010)
