Steve Dunn, creator of the Rain Curtain Fountain, wanted an affordable raining water wall for his garden pergola. Local building contractors estimated $4000 to build an outdoor water wall, so Steve decided to design and build a water feature himself. After much research he developed several prototypes that led to a very natural looking and sounding raining water wall design.

DIY Water Wall Questions
The Rain Curtain Fountain has three rows or planes of water giving the waterfall a natural visual depth not present in manufactured water wall designs. The rain curtain's design is easily adjusted to create a outdoor water wall from 4ft to 30ft wide. Our DIY construction plans include a formula that insures a realistic rainfall regardless of what size of waterwall you plan to build.
Even though thousands of gallons per hour of recycled water flow thru the rain curtain fountain, there is virtually no splash due to the unique design of the water wall's recycling reservoir. This design allows for the creation of indoor as well as outdoor rain curtains. The fountain's rain falls gently at the rate of gravity, not under pressure, resulting in a natural looking and sounding water wall.
Our nozzle free waterfall design uses simple hand drilled holes instead of expensive metal nozzles that require cleaning, adjusting and replacement. The closed reservoir will keep your outdoor water wall running maintenance free.
