The Early Civilization: Fountains

Along with offering water, they dispersed water that amassed from deluges or waste material. The main components utilized were stone or clay. There were clay pipes, both circular and rectangle-shaped as well as canals made from the same elements. These consisted of cone-like and U-shaped clay water lines which were unique to the Minoans. The water supply at Knossos Palace was managed with a strategy of terracotta pipes that was positioned underneath the floor, at depths starting from a few centimeters to many meters. Along with disbursing water, the clay pipes of the Minoans were also made use of to amass water and store it. This required the clay piping to be suitable for holding water without seepage.

Quality Water Transportation: The water pipes may furthermore have been used to haul water to fountains which were distinct from the city’s normal technique.

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with drinking water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Used until the nineteenth century, in order for fountains to flow or shoot up into the air, their source of water such as reservoirs or aqueducts, had to be higher than the water fountain in order to benefit from the power of gravity. Fountains were not only used as a water source for drinking water, but also to decorate homes and celebrate the artist who created it. Roman fountains often depicted images of animals or heroes made of metal or stone masks. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden planners included fountains to create mini variations of the gardens of paradise. King Louis XIV of France wanted to demonstrate his dominion over nature by including fountains in the Gardens of Versailles. To mark the entryway of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts entered the city of Rome

Urban fountains created at the end of the nineteenth functioned only as decorative and celebratory adornments since indoor plumbing provided the essential drinking water. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity allowed fountains to bring recycled water into living spaces as well as create unique water effects.

Contemporary fountains are used to adorn public spaces, honor individuals or events, and enhance recreational and entertainment events.
