How to Properly Use Fountains




Pre-Show Setup
  • Set up your fountains on a hard, flat, level surface
  • Make sure you have a clear, open space to shoot
  • Have a hose, fire extinguisher, or water supply on hand for emergencies
  • Be sure you stabilize your fountain with bricks
  • Make sure your audience is a safe distance away, a minimum of 50 feet
  • Make sure all fuses are covered until ready to use
Using Fountains
  • Be sure to wear Safety Glasses and Safety Gloves when lighting
  • Use a Phantom Pyro Torch, punk or extended lighter to light
  • Use a flashlight at night so you can see the fuse
  • After you light the fuse move a minimum of 20 feet from the fountain
  • Never re-use a fountain that fails to light the first time, use a hose or other water source to soak the fountain and safely dispose of the fountain outdoors


  • Do not use with Alcohol
  • Never attempts to take a fountain apart
  • Never put your hand or any part of your body over a fountain
