Minoan Culture: Garden Fountains 7331565223648238325.jpg The Minoan Culture: Garden Fountains On the Greek island of Crete, excavations have discovered channels of multiple kinds. These provided water and extracted it, including water from waste and storms. The principle ingredients employed were stone or terracotta. Terracotta was used for channels and pipes, both rectangle-shaped and spherical. These incorporated cone-like and U-shaped terracotta piping that were exclusive to the Minoans. Knossos Palace had an sophisticated plumbing network made of clay conduits which ran up to three meters below ground. The piping also had other functions such as amassing water and conveying it to a centralized location for storage. This called for the clay conduits to be capable of holding water without leaking. Below ground Water Transportation: This system’s invisible nature might mean that it was originally planned for some type of ritual or to distribute water to restricted communities. Quality Water Transportation: Some scholars consider that these pipelines were chosen to build a different distribution system for the palace.

A fan can be used to blow fresh, dry air over them in order to generate a cooling effect. You can either take advantage of air from a corner of your living space or turn on your ceiling fan to improve the circulation in the room Regardless of the method you use, ensure the air is flowing over the top of the water in a consistent manner. Cool, crisp air is one of the natural byproducts of fountains and waterfalls. Merely standing in the vicinity of a large public fountain or waterfall will send a sudden chill through whoever is nearby.
