I turned on the color flo fountain to make sure it works as well as play around with colors. Bride wants navy blue, so I poured it in the bowl, turned it on, but b/c of the light below, the bottom bowl comes through purple.
Should I try to purchase blue bulbs and DON'T tint the water? Anyone with ideas???
Hello! What color are the lights in the fountain? What color did you use for the water? If the light in the bottom of the fountain isn't a clear color, it may just give off colored water in the bottom fountain. Some fountains I've used had pink or yellow lights. I've used no name brand fountains that just had white or clear lights with no problems. Not sure about changing the lights in the color flo fountain, would suggest using a slightly lighter blue than the navy, maybe royal to see what color the water turns in the bottom tier of the fountain. HTH
The bulbs are clear and white. I used the navy gel color. I will look for a light blue light and not tint the water, but I will try the royal blue and see....it's only the bottom of the bowl (the plastic has a squared/diamond look to it..wonder if it's reflecting like a prizm????)
navy blue water is hard to achieve. the bride should be aware that you will try to get it as dark as possible. I also find the water-based colors work better than gels in water. Believe it or not, the cheapo stuff in the grocery aisle will work better than the expensive gels!
never thought to try those.....also thought of maybe some type of darker blue seran wrap to line the base.....hmmmmm.....thanks so much!
Don't forget that with enough coloring to get navy, you might just have a blue fountain in the end...
what about blue colored seran wrap???? OR....painting the plastic blue?
Any thoughts on that???
new problem with fountain.......first of all, it's not a Kolor flo - it's a "Magic Fountain"
secondly, went to fill it up and play with coloring and noticed there was a leak in the bottom cascade tube. there is a crack almost the length of the plastic tube
don't think that can be repaired or can it??????
I already let the bride know....she REALLY wants a fountain!
