Fusion Aerating Fountain Installation at The Ice Cream Farm, Chester


Fusion Aerating Lake Fountain Commercial Installation at The Ice Cream Farm, Chester.

Heathland-Group-Ice-Cream-Farm-1The owner of the Ice Cream Farm in Chester, Cheshire contacted Heathland Group in March 2021. The Ice Cream Farm is over 1000 ft² of ice cream dreams. It’s the world’s largest ice cream parlour and makes 50+ flavours of award-winning Cheshire Farm ice cream for 30+ years. They have over half a million visitors per year. The site holds the Guinness World Record for the largest ice cream shop in the world and the biggest sand and water play area in Europe.

Ice Cream Farm New Lake

The family tourist attraction recently built a new lake on their site. The lake, with a fountain display, was built near the entrance to the site to be an eye-catching feature of the tourist attraction, both day and night. The lake water was still cloudy from the recent build project. The client requested a Heathland Group fountain with lights as a focal feature and to aerate the lake water. Lake aeration helps to turn cloudy water clear, a necessity for a tourist focal feature.

Heathland Group’s experienced team discussed various fountain and aeration options with the client. A floating aerating fountain was the perfect solution in this case. The Fusion series of aerating fountains provides excellent value for money, performing two operations at once. The floating fountain aerates the water body while simultaneously providing a stunning fountain display.

The 2 horsepower is one of the largest motor sizes in this range. The fountain has a vertical configuration, 45m cable and is suitable for a minimum water depth of 0.8m. The fusion series comes with a standard display nozzle kit. The patterns included in the standard display kit are – Tornado, Flare, Daffodil, Lily, Super Lily and Cluster Arch. These displays are all unique in their pattern and can be interchanged by the customer to provide a different display every week if desired. The client also ordered the optional Twister display kit to make the fountain display patterns twist and turn.

The client decided to add lighting set to the fountain for maximum impact. An LED 4 Lamp Lighting Kit with 4×30 watt LED Lamps 230v with a mounting kit in cool white colour. A fountain controller and timer for the fountain and lighting were also purchased plus a photocell for lighting. The fountain is secured in the lake with 2x two-leg weighted anchor kits which are comprised of 2x25kg mud weights and 2x armoured rope ties.  For extra peace of mind, the Fusion fountain range comes with a 3-year warranty on parts and a 3-year return to base labour warranty.

The fountain provides a beautiful backdrop to the tulip fields on-site when they are in flower. The additional aeration provided by the aerating fountain is helping to maintain a healthy ecological balance in the lake and clear water.
