The Eco Pool Drain Fountain easily connects to your pool’s 1.5″ or 2″ filter/pump waste water outlet. It disperses water into the air like a giant fountain. Traditional methods direct one large powerful steam of water directly into your landscaping which can cause severe soil erosion. The Eco Pool Drain “Fountain” gently returns the water back to the earth where it is absorbed. NOTE: The chemicals found in pool water are prohibited from entering storm sewers or waterways.

During the summer of 2011, my wife and I finally decided to install an in-ground pool. It happened to be a wet summer that year and I had to frequently release the excess water from our pool. In doing so I quickly became aware of how powerful the force from the waste water hose can be as it destroyed my landscaping. So, I decided to go to my local pool store and purchase what I thought would be the missing part of my pool. I was surprised to hear that every store I visited was familiar with the problem, yet no solution was readily available. So, out of frustration, I invented the Eco Pool Drain Fountain.
In 2013, we exhibited our product for the first time at the Atlantic City Pool & Spa Show. There we were interviewed and featured on the front page of a Pool & Spa web magazine. Today we have many testimonials from pool professionals and have been recently featured in a well known industry blog.
Finally A Better Way
How the Eco Pool Drain Fountain Beats All Other Alternatives
The durable sealed Eco Pool Drain “Fountain” unit easily connects to your sand or cartridge pool pump. Each kit includes an extra heavy duty waste water hose and two turn key hose clamps. No tools are required for this installation. The waste water fountain can also be hard plumbed to your pool pump and requires very little space. It quickly disperses a large volume of pool water over 100 square feet in a fountain-like manner, similar to rainfall. The earth absorbs the water with little to no soil erosion or property damage and then self-drains when finished.
This is an inexpensive solution that can be installed in minutes by either a pool service professional or the pool owner. Best of all it’s tranquil and REALLY FUN to watch!

This product is designed to operate with above-ground and in-ground swimming pools equipped with 1.0 or 2HP (horsepower) sand or cartridge filter systems. This manual MUST be followed precisely.
DESCRIPTION: The Eco Pool Drain Waste Water Fountain (sometimes referred to as the Eco in this manual) is the only Drain that comes down like Rain. The Eco is designed to ONLY be used with properly balanced pool water. The Eco is ONLY to be used with sand or cartridge filter systems. The Eco re-purposes swimming pool waste water by gracefully spraying it several feet into the air. Your actual height may vary based on many factors such as; the size of your pool pump and pressure. The returning spray naturally falls back to the ground covering approximately 30 to more than 100 sq. ft. It’s environmentally friendly and reduces the soil erosion commonly associated with the forceful blast of a wastewater hose.
The Eco is constructed with heavy-duty thick durable HDPE plastic and yet it is light enough to carry around on your fingertips.
The Eco is designed to operate with ONLY hoses rated at 20 PSI (pounds per square inch or higher). Kits #400 & #420 include our heavy duty hose which is designed to operate with the Eco.
Hoses that don’t meet these specifications may burst, cause damage and/or result with injury or death and are not suitable for with this waste water fountain.
