RE: fountain question

You need to tell us what type of end result design you are thinking of. For

are you buying a center piece (ie spitter for pond)statue type thing, 

or are you building a wall and looking at a waterfall concept, 

or is this fountain just coming out of the ground as a spray, or what?

Each one would have a different set up....

But your pump has to be accessible at least with a limited access. In any
case, make sure you buy a 'pond pump' not a 'utility' pump. They use far
less electricity and are designed for continuous use. 

Depending on how large of fountain you are using, they do have out of the
water pumps. I use that type for one of my waterfalls, but it pushes 5,000
gallons an hour and is an industrial type pump. Not sure they make those for
small applications. There is a cylinder out of the water where the junk
accumulates and has to be cleaned out.
