Materials:

  • AC Pump
  • Acrylic tube
  • Bucket
  • LEDs

that is a cool project Abdulrahman. I love fluids Dynamics and your project will need some calculations to be done, so you might want to refresh your memory on fluid dynamic concepts and equations. you have a clear idea of what needs to be done and I hope it turns out the way you want it to.

There’s a lot of directions your could go with this project. It may help to do some sketches to narrow down the design.

Hi Abdulrahman,
This is a very interesting project you got here! I really enjoy the illusion that you are trying to create here and I am super excited to see the final product you come up with. I also really like the blend of engineering and art that you’ve incorporated into your project.

I really like your idea because it has an amazing aesthetic! The illusionism adds a very unique factor and I cannot wait to see how real it looks. The project is also something I would love to have in or outside of my house. Great work!

Hello, I really liked your project. I think its really cool you are creating an art piece for your project. What kind of aesthetic will you apply to your floating faucet, and how will you implement it?

This is a unique idea. I like that you want to use materials that you already have to save money.

This looks like it will turn out really cool. Interesting that the water goes up the inside the tube and falls down the outside. Might be cool to light it from the bottom with some LEDs.

I have never heard of a floating faucet before today. This seems like an interesting and challenging project. You seem to have most of the materials you need, but make sure you know how you are going to implement them. Good luck on your project!

I love the illusion of this project. I hope the tubing and fluid dynamics aren’t too complicated.
