Does anyone know how much this project would cost?

Do you know that Christianity is correct? The world around us reveals that G-d DOES exist, and the historical evidence reveals that Jesus Christ really did come to this earth and there is overwhelming evidence that Jesus Christ really did physically rise from the dead. Jesus is coming again and the signs of the end times that were foretold in the Bible are coming to pass.

Took us three months. Looks great but this is not an afternoon project.

JESUS CHRIST – God Himself came into this world, He died for our sins, He was buried, and God the Father raised Him from the dead, and through His Sacrifice we live in victory – JESUS CHRIST IS LORD !

She probably has bad knees. I have one and it hurts to do that even on a rug or a yoga mat.

thanks easy and step by step

Half of the things I see Lowes advertise on there How To Videos are not sold at Lowes. When I ask for a specific item named on the video, employees acts like it’s news to them. The Lowes employees must not watch these videos, extremely aggravating!

fatdanios says:

It would be a lot more expensive.

This sounds like a project I can handle – will give it a shot. Thanks.

It’s just that simple..not! Not for the beginner!

1RoseGarden says:

Terrific idea and instructions. Hope to make one soon.

stewnta says:

Can’t you just go to your local lawn and garden store and just buy the whole thing already constructed? Seems like it would save alot of time.

This is a great backyard idea…just be sure to drain it before winter or, a deep freeze will cause the pot to crack.

iLOVENATURE2011 says:

I’ve been looking for an affordable garden water fountain for the birds, hummingbirds, and bees, and butterflies to sip on while browsing the flowers in my garden. I live in the desert, and all of the above come in droves when I’m watering the garden, and this is perfect to attract quite a bit of wildlife. and affordable! =)

MrYman101 says:

sooooooo easy

SuperCJ429 says:

I made one of these after watching this video. It’s a neat water feature to have. Just a couple notes. You have to be extremely lucky to find a pot that will perfectly match the bowl diameter like was shown in the video. I couldn’t, so I didn’t use the bowl so my entire pot is filled with water, which I think looks nicer anyway. I used some bricks inside the pot to support the fountain nozzle. I think a 75 – 80 gallon/hr pump would be about right for this project. Fun project!

catwaterfountain says:

great video, but why your link is about lawn mower?

AngelDemon83 says:

I looked on the website but it didn’t give me a list of what I need

elsteviolee says:

I have built dozens of these things. Sorry do not mean to boast! Anyhoo, they are kinda fun for a while; but they go to hell pretty soon. For a proper water feature you need to really go for it, spend some money and get some expertise. Get something solid that will last thirty years. It’s the only way.

TheNoobyRobloxian says:

Lol adults trying to use a keyboard.

ZZputt says:

This seemed really easy. It would have been nice if Lowes actually carried the black plastic container and the plastic bowl.

inventorlewis says:

What type of pump is that ?

anusockinmydrawer says:

What. You don’t like someone leaving nasty comments for you and calling you a moron? I thought, from the other comments you left for others, you could take it?

mygreenday69 says:

Honestly, who are you and why should I care? You watched my channel and thought you came up with some grand comical and intelligent response. Good job, here’s your gold star. Oh, you want a robotic crow ornament that shits every ten minutes as well, sorry. All the other uneducated Americans got one. We’re fresh out, but if shit is what you are looking for then simply open your mouth and speak. But keeping the speaking to once every hour or else it gets pretty deep.

anusockinmydrawer says:

HA! Geezus, someone didn’t love you growing up! Talking to people like they are idiots and calling them names DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE WANT TO LISTEN TO WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY! HA! what an idiot. Why don’t you go talk to some Aliens you gullible prick! HA! Hey! look over ther, a conspiracy theory! HA! Moron.

Melody Heather says:

my greenday69 go ruin your own video your soo rude and UGLY

jamestargetedindiv says:

Watch a Pre-January 8th copy of Inception. Listen closely when the actors say imagine, reality, and safe, or point pistols. You’ll hear the words, Loughner, offin’ her, part of the word Giffords, and much more. Some even say they hear, do it.
