The Difference Between a Water Wall and a Bubble Wall

Water Wall vs Bubble Wall

A water wall and a bubblewall have quite a few things in common, so we understand how it may be easy to get the names of the two products confused. In fact, our products have been called many different names, including bubble water walls, bubble fountains, bubble panels, bubbling water fountains, and water walls, just to name a few. In the past, we’ve covered a few of the main differences between a bubble fountain and a water bubbler. Today, we’re going to do the same thing for a water wall vs. a bubblewall. We hope that this will help to answer your questions, as well as clear up any confusion!

The photo above should give you some insight into a few of the differences, but we will break it down further into more specific information.

Water wall fountains are described as being similar to basins or reservoirs with a continuous trickle of water coming down the sides of the walls. Like our bubble walls, indoor water walls are becoming popular in homes, offices, and gardens. While both indoor and outdoor water walls do not produce bubbles, they generally have a pump that is connected by some type of tubing device, and it is used to circulate the water through the water wall. Some water walls are different from others, and you may find that the water will either trickle, spill over, or spray.

Water Wall Houston Tx

One of the most famous water walls is the water wall fountain in Houston, TX. In fact, it’s the most photographed site in Houston! It’s a 64-foot U-shaped fountain, and has water rushing down it’s walls on both the inside and the outside. The water wall was designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee in 1985, and the fountain pumps 78,500 gallons of recycled water every three hours and 20 minutes. As you can see, the water wall in Houston is much, much larger than the bubble wall fountains we produce for your homes, offices, and businesses!

Quite possibly the most similar quality of these two products, is their ability to relieve stress and create a peaceful and serene environment. Many of our customers purchase our bubble walls, and use them to add more Zen to their homes, while also alleviating their anxiety. Being around water has been shown to have several health benefits, and we’ve even written an article about the health benefits of bubble walls! Many of our bubble walls are located inside spas, salons, and places that practice meditation and yoga.

The bubble walls and bubble panels that we create here at Bubblewall.com are different in a lot of ways. Each of our bubble fountains are handcrafted in the United States, and we think it’s incredibly important that we use the absolute best acrylic and aluminum materials. One of the major difference between our bubble walls and the water walls we discussed earlier, is that our units come with an RGB LED lighting system. What this means, is that you’re able to change the color of your bubble wall quickly and easily with a remote control! Recently on a few of our bubble wall models, we’ve also added the option of using a SmartPhone app on your iPhone or Android cell phone that controls your lighting settings, instead of using a remote.

Custom Bubble Wall With Logo

Another unique feature of our bubble panels, is the ability to add a custom engraved graphic! Adding this creates an extremely mesmerizing effect, as you’re able to see the changing colors and dancing bubble walls behind the graphic you’ve chosen. This is incredibly popular among spas, salons, hotels, and other businesses. Many of our customers have also added their children’s name as a custom etched design, or they’ve created their own logos for their home bars! As the custom logo is something that we etch into the surface of our bubble panels, this is not something you’re able to do with the larger, water walls.

Black Bubble Wall Fountain

We offer several different models of our bubble walls to ensure that you can find one that meets your needs! Our most popular units are our wall-mounted bubble wall fountains, the 300WM and the 500WM. With both of these models, you have the option of choosing a silver or black frame. These are also the two models that offer the SmartPhone app controller option, if that is a feature you are interested in.

 

If you’re looking for something a bit larger, we do offer free-standing units, as well. These are the 600FS and the 600LE. They are both much larger than our wall-mounted units, but still produce the same, amazing bubbles. Or you may be interested in our newest model, and slightly larger wall-mounted unit, the 550WM. This unit has not been out long, and is becoming more and more popular! Lastly, if you’re more of a DIY-er and are looking for a more custom designed bubble panel, we suggest either our 450SP or 400SP. These units are extremely customizable, and we even have installation tips on our website!

As you can see, a water wall and a bubble wall do share some common characteristics, but they are also incredibly different, as well. We hope this provides as a great resource for differentiating the two, and if you have any additional questions or comments concerning either of the products, we would be more than happy to help!
