The Slate and Marble:
All the stones used in Adagio water fountains are specially quarried and shipped from India. The slate stones of India are renowned worldwide for their unique beauty and elegance. In all the fountains in this series, each slate stone is hand-cut and its edges are chiseled to perfection, making your fountain a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Because no two slate pieces are alike, your fountain is an original. Therefore, your stone will vary somewhat in color and texture from the pictures seen here on our website.
The solid Rajah slate is a dark gray background that is often seen with splashes of orange, burgundy and rust while the green slate is a light or sea foam green that is often adorned with splashes of peach and yellow. We now offer a Rainforest Brown marble, Black Spider marble and Rainforest Green marble stone on some of the water features, as well. You can see a sample of these options on the products it is offered.
If you are looking for the same beauty but with a lightweight option, consider FeatherStone Slate. It is a slate veneer that is framed by the metal of your choice, which allows you to get the same slate look without the heavy weight of slate. This cuts the weight of your fountain down by 70 percent. This lighter-weight version is available in black, rajah and green slate on most of the Adagio features.
Glass and Mirror Face:
Glass- and mirror-face Adagio fountains are just as you might imagine them. The silver mirror looks just like your standard bathroom mirror and the bronze is tinted a bronze color. The clear glass looks just like a window and the blue and green glass has a slight tint to it.
The Metal Hood and Basin:
Copper - All of the copper components are fashioned from very high-grade copper that is mined in a Utah copper mine. The unique, marble-like finish is burned onto the copper one piece at a time by skilled artisans. A clear-coat finish (similar to what is used on automobiles) is then applied to the copper to give it a high-gloss finish. This coating creates an added beauty and protects the copper from naturally oxidizing (turning green) in spots over time.
Stainless Steel - As an alternative to copper, you can have your metal hood and basin crafted in a beautiful, high-quality milled stainless steel. Stainless steel creates a contemporary look and is very striking.
Blackened Copper – A beautiful powder-coated finish over stainless steel or steel creates a look similar to an old, antiqued rocking chair with copper undertones. This faux antique finish is truly beautiful.
Antique Bronze – This finish is available on some fountains as a standard and can be quoted for any style. It is a powder-coated bronze color that creates a neutral finish over steel.
Square or Rounded Edges - On most of the Adagio line of fountains, regardless of what metal you choose, you can get either square or rounded edges on the hood, basin and splashguard.
The Spillway Water Distribution System
Unlike many wall and floor fountains on the market where the water flows down in an uneven way, all the fountains in this series include a state-of-the-art spillway water distribution system that creates 100-percent water coverage in the water flow. While this may not seem like an important detail, this special water distribution system gives Adagio fountains a much more elegant and sophisticated look than their lesser counterparts.
NO DRIPPING OR LEAKING:
The fountains in this series come with an industrial-strength 1/8-inch-thick polypropylene plastic liner which is form-fitted into the metal tray. This keeps the fountain from dripping or leaking water. Before each fountain leaves the factory, it is water tested three times to make sure there is no dripping or leaking. If you think that you have a leak, the majority of the time the fountain was overfilled and water got outside of this plastic liner.
Wall Fountain Installation:
These wall fountains can be installed on almost any type of wall, including cinder block walls and sheet rock walls with either wood or metal studs. The installation is relatively easy, but it does usually require two people to ensure that the process goes smoothly. Before installing the fountain, you can install an electrical outlet in the wall directly behind where the slate will be placed. This is not a requirement, but doing this will eliminate the visibility of the electrical wires and make the overall look of the fountain more beautiful. See below for details about electrical installation.
Comprehensive easy-to-read instructions with pictures are included as well as an EZ installation DVD when you purchase an Adagio fountain.
Electrical Recommendations for Adagio Wall Fountains:
Although it is not required, you can install a GFI electrical outlet in the wall behind where the slate will be placed prior to installing your wall fountain. Doing so is more aesthetically pleasing as it will enable you to keep the electrical cord hidden from sight. Place the electrical outlet near the center of the slate, at least 18 inches above the fountain's lower tray (at the bottom) and at least 24 inches below the metal hood (at the top of the fountain). For the double and triple slate falls, the electrical outlet should be placed behind the leftmost slate panel as you place it on the wall.
If you choose to install an electrical outlet behind the slate, it is recommended that you wire it to a wall switch so you can easily turn your fountain on and off without having to reach for the plug behind the slate. Also, if you'd like to control the fountain's halogen lights and the water flow separately, it is recommended that you install an additional clock box outlet behind the slate so there is one for the pump and one for the lights. Then you wire that to a double wall switch so one switch controls the pump and the other one controls the fountain lights.
How often you have to add new water to the metal basin depends on the dryness or humidity of your environment. In the summer, water tends to evaporate more quickly, which means you will have to add water more often. In cooler months, you will probably not have to add water that often. You always want to have enough water in the basin so that the pump is fully submerged. If the pump is operating while it is not fully submerged, you can damage it over time.
It is highly recommended to use distilled water with these fountains. We realize that may not always be possible, but do your best. Regular tap water has minerals which can create mineral deposits in your fountain over time and can possibly shorten the life of your water pump. You can greatly extend the life of your Adagio fountains by filling them with distilled water, only.
Copper - It is recommended that you apply a hard shell car wax to the outside of the copper water tray (basin) and upper half front side of the copper splash guard approximately every 60 days. This will help prevent the water from penetrating the clear coat finish. If you get white spotting on your copper and the wax does not remove it, apply Calcium Lime Remover (CLR) or Lime-Away to those spots and rinse it very thoroughly.
Stainless Steel - DO NOT apply wax to the stainless steel. If spotting occurs, apply Calcium Lime Remover or Lime-Away as noted above.
Water - You may apply one to three drops of bleach to the water weekly to avoid algae growth and unfavorable odors. Never use more than this as too much bleach will dull the slate. We also carry many fountain care products that are safe for most types of water features.
