couldnt sleep this morning so i decided to try something ...take one std gardena sprinkler (oscilating type)...take 1 drill and widen the holes a bit...hook up to 1 sbmesible pump 2000 lph...place into water (tried it in my bath first) and there u have great wave effect for a few $$$$...also nennie safe...not sure if this is a old trick....now to get it onto a timer

i don't think that would be nennie safe. nothin is ever one hundred percent nennie safe, and a rotating object where their tentacles can get wraped on to it?ooo not sure about that. but a good idea, see how it works and tell us

i don't think as high as that unfortunatly. its all open and exposed, so it would be easy to get trapped. also fish, and shrimps, hermits. i think you should investigate a cover for the second prototype:)

Note any springs, metal fittings in sprinkler, are unsafe
Sprinkler reduces flow drastically.

Yes, the "effect" is nice.

Have tried this, amongst other ways of using pop-up irrigation sprinklers,

Believe it, when people say aquarium-made designs are better, safer, last longer than most DIY.

But, good luck learning and growing:thumbup:
