The Original Garden Water Features

Villages and villages relied on working water fountains to conduct water for preparing food, bathing, and cleaning up from nearby sources like ponds, streams, or creeks. To make water flow through a fountain until the late 1800’s, and produce a jet of water, required gravity and a water source such as a creek or reservoir, situated higher than the fountain. Fountains spanning history have been developed as memorials, impressing hometown citizens and visitors alike. When you encounter a fountain nowadays, that is definitely not what the 1st water fountains looked like. Created for drinking water and ceremonial functions, the first fountains were very simple carved stone basins. Stone basins as fountains have been discovered from 2000 BC. The spray of water appearing from small spouts was forced by gravity, the only power source designers had in those days. Drinking water was supplied by public fountains, long before fountains became decorative public statues, as attractive as they are practical. Beasts, Gods, and religious figures dominated the early ornate Roman fountains, beginning to appear in about 6 BC. A well-engineered collection of reservoirs and aqueducts kept Rome's public water fountains supplied with fresh water.

Original Water Delivery Techniques in Rome

Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct founded in Rome, started out delivering the people living in the hills with water in 273 BC, even though they had relied on natural springs up till then. If citizens living at higher elevations did not have access to springs or the aqueduct, they’d have to count on the remaining existing technologies of the day, cisterns that accumulated rainwater from the sky and subterranean wells that received the water from below ground. From the beginning of the sixteenth century, water was routed to Pincian Hill via the subterranean channel of Acqua Vergine. During its original building and construction, pozzi (or manholes) were added at set intervals along the aqueduct’s channel.Original Water Delivery Techniques Rome 75800617194.jpg Though they were initially developed to make it possible to support the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi started out using the manholes to get water from the channel, commencing when he bought the property in 1543. He didn’t get sufficient water from the cistern that he had manufactured on his residential property to gather rainwater. To provide himself with a much more streamlined system to assemble water, he had one of the manholes exposed, giving him access to the aqueduct below his property.
