Any way I could set this up to a garden hose?
So I could turn the water on & off only when the dog is outside??
I do NOT want a recirculating system. I find they get so scuzzy. :-/

Any input or ideas on how to do this would be AWESOME!!! :-)

designate a bathroom area for your pet. It takes some work, but is possible to train dogs to go in just one or two places in your yard. The ingenious locale shown here is hidden behind a fence. Another option for a bathroom spot is a gravel patch that can easily be hosed down; dogs often prefer gravel to grass anyway.

Yes it is a water fountain. We disassembled the hydrant, taking out the mechanics inside. It had a hole in the nut on top. We fed some tubing through that hole to connect to a fountain pump. We then dug a hole with tapered sides and put a basin into that hole. We lined the hole with plastic liner. We placed several bricks in the basin to support the weight of the hydrant as it's very heavy. We then put a grate from a round BBQ grill on the bricks to keep the rocks out of the basin. Next we placed a pump in the basin, connected it to the tubing that goes through the hydrant, set the hydrant on top of the grate and bricks. We used rock to cover the grate and liner. The basin acts as a reservoir. It splashes some and there is a fair amount of evaporation so we have to fill it every few days to keep it running. The birds love the gentle bubbling of water on top.
