Researchers aren't 100% sure why people find the sound of running water relaxing. Some believe that falling water guides human neuronal waves, resulting in a calming effect. 

Of course, it's not as important to know why running water feels relaxing. The key takeaway is that flowing water is relaxing. Use this knowledge to take advantage of that fact.

Consider getting a poolside Water Bowl. The ambient sounds can help take the edge off a stressful day – and this isn’t the only benefit of these water features.

Planter & Water Bowls

A planter & water bowl is designed to hold soil and foliage in addition to its water performance. With soil capacity in some bowls of 3+ cubic feet, these water features allow the plants to be positioned on top of the water flow. 

For obvious reasons, fire elements are not part of the design on these bowls 😊.

#3 Easy to Install 

If you already have a dedicated water line in place pre-purchase, the Water Bowls and Planter & Water Bowls could likely be installed same-day by following the included instructions.  

Fountainful and The Outdoor Plus recommend that Fire & Water Bowls be installed by a qualified installer, service agency, or the gas supplier, given the intricacies involved. 

Caution: Glass media can be dangerous with liquid propane. Propane is 1.5x heavier than air, and the denseness of decorative glass may cause propane to pool underneath and create a potentially dangerous situation. If using a liquid propane Fire & Water Bowl, stick with lava rocks.

#4 Complement Your Décor 

Bowls handcrafted by The Outdoor Plus and sold by Fountainful come in a diverse mix of sizes, shapes, colors and materials. 

You're sure to find a bowl that perfectly fits within your decorative theme.
