1. What is GFRC?
GFRC, or Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete, is a strong and lightweight concrete material reinforced with glass fibers instead of steel. It offers many advantages over traditional concrete, such as higher strength, flexibility and superior fire resistance. By allowing the use of thinner sections, gravity loads are reduced. Due to its properties, GFRC can be used in various applications, including the production of water fountains. It is also highly durable, as it does not corrode and is less prone to cracking.

3. Is installing a stone fountain difficult?
Installing a stone fountain can be a fun and rewarding addition to any home. To begin, you will need to purchase a pre-fabricated fountain kit from The Soothing Company. The first step is to determine the location of the fountain, making sure it is near an available water source such as a garden hose or irrigation line. Once the location is determined, the next step is to dig an appropriately sized hole in the ground, into which the base of the fountain's basin (Aquabox) should fit. Make any adjustments to even the space for the fountain base, and place the Aquabox basin into the hole. Connect the plumbing between the pump and the basin and fill the fountain with water. Finally, enjoy your new fountain!
