This water feature starts off looking similar to many other spherical steel water features. However, after just a few days of use, it will develop a rust-like surface that also has a protective layer. This layer protects against further corrosion, and it is completely unique, so no two features are the same. The intricate petal pattern is still visible once the rust has developed. Complete with a pump, you will be able to get this feature up and running in no time. It is self-contained, so all you need to do is add water and bury the reservoir in the ground. It has been finished with integrated LED lights that bring the feature to life at night, beautifully illuminating the bubbling water.

Corten Steel - Rust Surface with Protective Layer

Corten is a type of steel that naturally weathers over time, and develops an attractive rust with a protective layer. It is really a paradox, as although it is rusted, to a degree, the surface actually has a layer that protects against further corrosion. In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to form the protective coating. This protective layer develops due to the elements that are active in the alloys of the steel. It regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of water and oxygen.

Petal Pattern Surface

The decorative petal pattern gives the surface additional texture; the design allows the 'corten rust' to develop over the petals, however the pattern is still clearly visible through the rust. The petals also channel the water in different and interesting directions, as they are raised slightly.

'Ultra Bright' White LED Lights

The white lights are situated at the top of the sphere, so that they illuminate the water as it bubbles out of the top, adding another layer of intrigue to this feature.

Rusting Process

The images to the left and directly below show the feature as the process has begun and the rust starts to develop. It will arrive with a steel finish, similar to that of other stainless steel features. If you wish, you can speed up the rusting process by using a cloth and rubbing the surface with salt and/or vinegar.

"Decent product, looked a bit confusing at first to put together but actually nothing to worry about. Water does discolour very quickly due to rusting process so had to change water a couple of times before putting in place, not sure how this will be done moving forward."

"It would have been good if in the description they stated you will need to change the water every 7 days as it goes orange through the rust creation period"
