drill a hole on the bottom of the planter


Drill a hole on the bottom of the planter that is 1-¼ in. wide using the 1-¼ in Drill Bit.

TIP! Always wear safety glasses when operating an electric tool.

assemble the Container Fountain Kit with Light.


Assemble the Container Fountain Kit with Light. Determine the height you’d like the feature to sit with slack in the cord so you can position the pump in the center of the planter.

TIP! Mark the height on the cord with chalk.

position the power cord and epoxy the hole for a water tight seal


Position the cord through the hole to your mark. Apply epoxy to fill the hole around the cord. Wait a minimum of 1.5 hours for the epoxy to harden.

Do not move the cord while the epoxy is setting.

for an extra seal, reinforce the epoxy with caulk


Once epoxy has hardened, flip the planter over and add a small amount of water to test for leaks. For extra seal, reinforce the seal with caulk.

position the planter in your yard


Once you are certain there is no leak, place the 5 smaller pavers under the planter. These will help will the cord running out the bottom.

place pavers into the planter


Once the planter is positioned, add the 6 pavers into the planter. Notice that your assembled Container Fountain Kit with Light is draped over the back of the planter. Place a black planter with no holes over the pavers to conceal them.

place the Container Fountain Kit with Light


Position the TotalPond® Container Fountain Kit with Light on the pavers and begin to fill with water until the pump is fully submerged.

Cover the pavers inside the main planter with a black planter or bucket to make them less visible.
