Fundamentals of Hydrostatics

6250_0803__43035.jpg From its housing vessel to other materials it comes in contact with, liquid in equilibrium applies force on everything it meets. The force employed falls into one of two categories: external force or hydrostatic energy. When used against a level surface, the liquid applies equal force against all points of that surface. Liquid in equilibrium will apply vertical pressure at every point of an object’s exterior when that object is fully submersed in the liquid. These vertical forces are buoyancy, and the concept by itself is more fully explained by Archimedes’principle. Hydrostatic pressure is created by hydrostatic force, when the force exerts itself on a point of liquid. A city’s water supply system, fountains, and artesian wells are all illustrations of the application of these concepts on containers.

Eco-Friendly Fountains: Good for the Planet

Are you looking to adorn your backyard? Well, think about adding elegance and value to your residence by installing a solar water feature. Solar powered water features can be a wiser investment versus electric ones because they not only improve one's well-being but they offer other interesting financial perks. While you may spend a little more upfront, the savings that you make in the long-run are worth it. Electrical power shortages will no longer hinder using your fountain since it will run on the the power of sunlight.

Your monthly electric bill will most likely go up with running water fountains. The short-term benefits may not be noticeable, but keep in mind that the increased worth of your home will be later on.

Spending more money on our electric bills is not the only downside - the environment is negatively affected too. Becoming “green” is just one of the pros of setting up a solar water fountain running only on the energy of the sun. The environment can only benefit from the use of solar powered homes and water fountains.

Less maintenance is a result of adding this kind of fountain. Clogs are avoided since there is no motor - which means less cleaning. And since there is little cleaning to do, you will have more time to enjoy yourself!
