hi vulkan.here is a little history about the spout.the spout is a famous landmark on a bend of a road between nile mile house and mullinahone.about 30 years ago some one filled it in.in a pub one night,after a few beers it was decided to re open the spout.one thing led to another and after a table quiz, materials were bought.people got to work on the stout, great craic was had working on the spout. as you can see on the video, great job was done by all, a credit to every body who worked for nothing. yours ponddigger

Nice picture Vulkan. Sandstone waterfalls bring a real sense of warmth into a garden. Its the natural brown and beige colours in sandstone water features that work so well.

Is it the Pump or a leak ??
I'm guessing it's a leak as there is no water in it, or was the res in it that big ???
