  • Patent number: 10376902
    Abstract: A water delivery device that may be used in a water display is described. The device includes an orifice or outlet through which water is shot out. The shape and configuration of the water device may be varied to dynamically adjust the configuration of the water shot out from the device. For example, the water delivery device may shoot out water in the shape of a fan, and the width of the fan may be varied.

  • Publication number: 20190091717
    Abstract: A water delivery device is described which includes an outlet pipe through which water is ejected to provide a water display. A disk is positioned relative to the outlet pipe. The relative positions of the disk and outlet pipe are moved so that the disk is located within the outlet pipe or above it to alter the appearance of the water leaving the outlet pipe. As the relative position of the disk and outlet pipe varies, a sequence of water expressions is provided.

  • Patent number: 10125952
    Abstract: A system that illuminates water in a water display in broad daylight is described. The system may include a color filter that directs a desired color or range of colors onto the water. The source of light may be the sun or an artificial light source. Where the light source is the sun, a heliostat may be included to track the sun and reflect sunlight to the color filter. Other reflecting mirrors may be included to provide a line of sight between the light source and water display being illuminated.

  • Publication number: 20170211793
    Abstract: A display where lights may be programmed to randomly flash is described. The randomness may be changed by changing the mode of flashing. The lights may extend along strings that are powered by a power supply that may itself be plugged into a socket that had previously served as a light socket. The display may be added to existing displays to enhance existing visual effects. The display may be submerged and the lights may remain upright because of their buoyancy.

  • Publication number: 20140312138
    Abstract: An impingement fan water display that may be used in a water display is described. The device may include two nozzles that project streams of water towards each other in an intersecting trajectory and impinge upon each other. The angle of orientation of the nozzles in relation to each other may be varied to produce varying water stream fan widths and shapes. A plate may be located at or near the point of impingement.

  • Publication number: 20140312137
    Abstract: A device to moving a water shooter is described. The device may contain features that allow the device to travel submerged in a reservoir with a water shooter attached. The device may travel along a fixed track, rotational boom, or be free swimming in order to move the water shooter within the reservoir so that unique water effects may be achieved.

  • Publication number: 20140203101
    Abstract: A device to shoot water into the air for a water display is described. The configuration of the shooter allows a stream of water to be shot out that contains reduced or no air exiting the device with the water, which provides a non-frothy appearance. The device may control the velocity of the water being shot by the device so that unique visual effects may be achieved, including an effect where a volume of water is suspended in the air.
