Types of Fountains
There are three different types of fountains. One is a rising jet. It shoots water straight into the air. Another one is a downward fall. In this fountain you can see the water coming down, too. Also, there are fountains where you can have a combination of the two. Some of the fountains have water shooting so straight and so high up into the air, it looks like it would never fall back down and just turn into mist. In others, you can clearly see it going up and coming right back down.
