This is a bronze spout with round pleasant lines sized for use in any number of installations: a wall fountain, a swimming pool, as a drain outlet. It has all the usual refinements. It's easy to install. It's available in a number of finishes ( even a stainless steel version is available.) And, it's beautiful.

Round, friendly and elegant
This is a spout with a cylindrical cross section and an elegant bend at the end reminiscent of a lip on a porcelain pitcher (or more porperly a ewer) commonly found with a washbasin. It's similar to what's called a Lamb's tongue scupper which is typically found on building walls and used to project rainwater away from a building wall.
The spout is about the right size for a swimming pool bond beam. The nice round shapes ensure that if you happened to bump into it the incident would soon be forgotten.
Well mannered flows
The water flow out of the spout is like pouring water out of a pitcher. The stream goes where you want it to without wandering around and splashing all over the place. You'd want that in a water pitcher. There are time you'd want that in a fountain spout. The downside of being so well mannered is that it can become boring. The sound from a constant stream of water spilling into a pool can be monotonous. Sometimes it's not what's needed. In a smaller courtyard with little sound damping, for example, a single stream of water pouring into a pond of water can sound like … ahem … the men's restroom in an abandoned airport at 3AM - quite a bit too much
Use the spout in open spaces where you'd like some noise. If the quality of the sound is important then use three or more of these spouts. That will create some fluctuations and make the splashes more interesting and less mechanical.
- Part is made of silicon bronze
- It is designed to be used with 1½ in plumbing. The casting is threaded with 1½ in female NPT. A 1½ in male adapter is provided to screw into back of spout. If you have a piece of PVC pipe sticking out from the wall you could just glue the part in place.
- A bonding lug for #8 AWG wire is provided at the back. A set screw at bottom of back plate secures the wire.
- Decorative use only. More secure mounting options available but they are expensive and complicated to install—call to discuss.
- The water arc is fairly stable and not overly susceptible to change if the spout is plumbed with a smaller pipe. Replace the provided male adapter with a bushing to fit your pipe. It's obviously not possible to move as much water with a smaller pipe. Also, the flows will not match the ones listed on the flow chart
- Designed to be removable. Provided it's installed in a way that allows for this. Review the installation detail.
