Aqua Rock Fountain Kit manufacturers natural stone water bubbler fountain kits.

| December 28, 2009

Aquascape has acquired Aqua Rock Fountain Kit of Shakopee, Minn., a manufacturer of natural stone water bubbler fountain kits.

The creators of the Aqua Rock Fountain Kit are brothers Joel and Ben Forsberg who leveraged their stone masonry background to create a simple yet unique fountain for the consumer market.

“Joel and Ben Forsberg are entrepreneurs at heart and acquiring their product and adding their skill set to our team will allow us to pursue new opportunities in entry-level fountains and kits,” stated Greg Wittstock, founder and CEO of Aquascape.

The patented Aqua Rock Fountain Kit consists of an underground basin, water pump and pre-drilled natural rock. Water continuously recycles through the sub-surface reservoir with a pump that is designed to make a 2- to 3-inch spout, providing the bubbling sound of water. In addition to creating a beautiful focal point in the landscape, the Aqua Rock Fountain Kit can also be used indoors by placing the basin in a decorative container. Four styles of Aqua Rock Fountain Kits are available and Aquascape will begin shipping kits in the first quarter of 2010.
