imageTwo rows of splash fountains.
Ten splash fountains per row.
Twenty splash fountains in total.
Thirty nozzles (three rows of ten) per fountain.
Six hundred ground nozzles in total.

Each nozzle (jet) has an orifice that is 1/4 inch in diameter, and delivers 2.65 GPM (Gallons Per Minute) at 3 foot spray height, and 4.36 GPM at maximum (8 foot) spray height. Spacing between nozzles (jets) is 2 inches, for a total body width of 18 inches, which is ideal for spanning most human body sizes, including large adults. Thus the size of the wall of water is approximately 1.5 feet wide by 8 feet tall, which more than adequately covers the largest and tallest of bathers.

Each fountain is supplied with three pipes each of which has 2 inch inside diameter. Thus each row of 10 nozzles is supplied by a 2 inch pipe, for a total of 43.6 GPM from the 2 inch pipe. The entire waterpark is supplied by three 8 inch pipes.
