How Mechanical Concepts of Water Fountains Spread

or-127__71859.jpg Spreading practical hydraulic facts and water fountain design ideas throughout Europe was accomplished with the published documents and illustrated books of the time. An internationally renowned pioneer in hydraulics in the later part of the 1500's was a French water fountain engineer, whose name has been lost to history. His expertise in making gardens and grottoes with built-in and ingenious water features began in Italy and with mandates in Brussels, London and Germany. In France, near the end of his lifetime, he wrote “The Principle of Moving Forces”, a book that became the essential text on hydraulic technology and engineering. Classical antiquity hydraulic discoveries were outlined as well as revisions to crucial classical antiquity hydraulic discoveries in the publication. Archimedes, the creator of the water screw, had his work highlighted and these integrated a mechanized means to move water. An beautiful water fountain with the sun heating the water in two containers stashed in a nearby room was shown in one illustration. Activating the water feature is hot liquid that expands and rises to close up the conduits. Pumps, water wheels, water attributes and garden pond concepts are included in the book.

Agrippa's Astonishing, but Mostly Forgotten Water-Lifting Device

Unfortuitously, Agrippa’s great plan for lifting water wasn’t discussed a lot after 1588, when Andrea Bacci acknowledged it publicly. It may possibly have turned out to be dated when the Villa Medici was enabled to receive water from the Acqua Felice, the early modern channel, in 1592. The more likely explanation is that the device was abandoned when Franceso di Medici, Ferdinando’s siblingdied in 1588, leading him to give up his position as cardinal and return to Florence where he obtained the throne as the Grand Duke of Tuscany. It could defy gravity to lift water to Renaissance landscapes, providing them in a way other late 16th century concepts such as scenographic water exhibits, melodious fountains and giochi d’acqua or water caprices, were not.

Scientific research supports the hypothesis that water fountains are excellent for you. The negative ions generated by water features are offset by the positive ions produced by modern-day conveniences. When positive ions overtake negative ones, this results in greater mental and physical health. A rise in serotonin levels is experienced by those who have one of these water features making them more alert, serene and lively. The negative ions emitted by indoor wall fountains promote a better mood as well as get rid of air impurities from your home.

The Countless Choices in Wall Fountains
