You can find them all over here in Michigan for $10.

I bought one and played it. Basically you need a lot of waterflow to work a Beckett. At least 1,000gph in my estimation.

Otherwise, they work like an inverted venturi. I see no reason you couldn't make one smaller and require less waterflow.

beckett is the name of the company that makes water pumps for ponds !! they also make fountain heads !! the one im looking for is a pond foamer which the pump pumps water thru it and it sucks a ton of air at the sametime !!
