    For the Fountain head:
    -6" long 1/2 diameter PVC pipe. Threaded on both ends.
    -90 degree barb fitting
    -5/16 stainless steel washer
    -3/32 brass tube
    -1/4in brass barb

    -620 G.P.H.+ Take your pick from one of these.
    The height of the fountain is a function of the pump output and the nozzle size. If you get a bigger pump you can get a larger waster size for a fatter column of water or a skinny nozzle for a higher column of water.

    -Propane tank
    -1/4in tube for propane
    -1/2in hose for water Https://
    -propane tank adaptor
    -lots of hot glue

    it may look a bit better on natural gas instead of propane. slightly less risk of it pooling up in the bottom bucket and causing liftoff of everything on top
