The Pissing Gnomette Fountain and Evaporator

This is probably nothing like what the finished fountain will look like, but it's what I have so far. I think it's pretty cool. It's interactive. To make her pee, you pump the water from the pond into the gnomette. The top part will be filled with activated carbon and aquarium filter fiber with rock onto of that. All of that sits on a vinyl screen. Shower and dish washing water can be poured directly into the filtering system to remove solids The rest is recirculated by the direct interaction of people who want to see her pee, until it is evaporated.

It's no where near finished, but I am pretty happy with it so far. The big round thing is an air filter of some kind and has a ring of cardboard inside. I drilled the top so the water seeps down into it, but I think it needs some kind of wicking system to induce the water to absorb into it. I am also on the lookout for something to give it a but of a lip around the top.

My goal was to make my fountain with as few newly purchased items as possible.
