New Tanjun Vertical Wall Fountain
PLEASE NOTE: due to the natural, unique nature of the slate used in the these fountains, the appearance of each stone is slightly different. If you would like to know exactly what your slate will look like before ordering, please contact our Customer Service department, they can provide you an array of currently available stones to choose from so you know exactly how it will look.
In Japan and East Asia, design is often centered around the idea of achieving the greatest beauty possible, the greatest impact with the least amount of effort. The idea of "Less is More". The serene Zen Rock gardens in Kyoto, or the power and impact of a Haiku poem are great examples of this theme, evoking a pleasing visual impact with a brevity of materials, or strong emotional feelings within a few words.
Our New Tanjun Vertical Fountain is another great example of this design theme. The Japanese word "Tanjun" can be translated as "Simple Beauty" and our stunning fountain features a slab of hand cut, natural slate stone nestled between matching metal finish trays, and is a perfect example of "simple beauty". Water gently flows over the stone slab from the top tray to the bottom tray, offering a beautiful visual impact while at the same time creating the soft pleasing sound of water gently falling.
Since the slate is a natural stone, the color in each may vary slightly for each fountain. The stones for each fountain are chosen for their elegance, beauty and for their complimentary look and design with the metal hood and tray. Your fountain is an original, one-of-a-kind work of art. The Multicolor Rajah slate has a dark grey background with splashes of natural orange and burgundy colors. The Natural Green slate is a light or seafoam green often with splashes of peach and coral highlights.
High intensity halogen lamps illuminate the individual beauty of the stone pieces, providing an indirect light on the stone as the water flows down. The effect can only be described as amazing. Separate switches control the water flow and lighting. This offers full versatility in how the fountain is displayed.
The total size of the New Tanjun Vertical Fountain is 22" wide x 46" high x 5" deep. The Fountain is available with Multicolor Rajah slate or Natural Green slate. The Multicolor Rajah slate has a dark grey background with splashes of natural orange and burgundy colors. The Natural Green slate is a light or seafoam green often with splashes of peach and coral highlights. Since the Natural Green and Rajah Slates are unique, natural stones, the color may vary slightly for each fountain.

New Tanjun Wall Hanging Fountains Technical Information
Each New Tanjun fountain comes complete and ready to place. No special wiring or plumbing is needed. Placement of fountain by a carpenter or handyman is suggested. It is important that the fountain is mounted on wall studs and not dry wall only. This will provide adequate support for the fountain. No special plumbing is required, as the fountain uses a self-enclosed, self-circulating pump.
Although not necessary, a GFI electrical outlet in the wall directly behind the fountain is highly recommended. Doing so is more aesthetically pleasing as it keeps the electric cord hidden from view. We also recommend connecting this plug to a wall switch that will enable you to easily turn your fountain on and off without having to reach behind the stone to pull out the plug.
The water feature acts as a natural humidifier and therefore requires the occasional addition of water, depending on the setting and climate location. Falling water also creates negative ions, which cleanse the air of dust, pollen and allergenic particles. Distilled water only. One to two drops of bleach can be added to the water occasionally to avoid algae growth.
To Protect the Blackened Copper, Copper or Silver finishes from discoloration over time, it is recommended to apply car wax to the splashguard and tray several times a year.
