Fountain Hills Fountain Photo

I can’t visit Fountain Hills, Arizona and not photograph the World’s largest fountain!  The last light of sun is illuminating the top half of this impressive fountain. 

This fountain can reach a height of 560 feet – higher then the Washington Monument!  Typically it reaches about 330 feet because the City only uses two the the three 600 hp pumps, saving one as a backup.  The fountain nozzle weighs over a ton and is feed by an 18 inch waterline.  It has been in operation for just over 36 years and was originally constructed at a cost of $1.5 million.
