Is there a ball valve available that fits this?
Related to the previous question, is there a ball valve available that fits this?
Ball valves do not fit on the fountain head or set, they connect to the tubing. You should be able to find one via Lowes or Home Depot's plumbing area.

Getting the Fountain spray larger
I have a 15 x 15 pond in the middle of my circle driveway. I have 3 "550" pumps. I want to make the fountain spray larger so you can see it from a distance. I'm not finding anything that will do that? I don't want the water higher than 6-9 feet. however, i want it to be a thick spary when you see it. Do i buy more pumps, with fountain heads? also, I have the cylinder filter on them to help the spray height last longer and not get clogged? is the box filter a better choice?
No to all of your questions. Basically, we do not make anything that will make that large of a fountain. Well, our WGP 1900 pump would make a huge fountain, but our fountain set is not going to manage one as big as what you wish to have; it doesn't have the right head for that. I recommend using Oase or Otterbine-Barebo products for applications like yours, as they are two companies that handle commercial applications such as golf courses and hotels.

Is there a way to regulate the flow to the diverted path?
I have a system similar to this but I need to be able regulate the flow to both the fountain head and the diverted water to a waterfall. I see what appears to be a flow regulator to the fountain head but nothing to regulate the diverted flow.
The regulator on this allows you to determine how much water goes either way. So you can make either the fountain stronger or the other application stronger, in flow rate. If, after you adjust it to the flow you want for your fountain, you find that it is too strong for the waterfall, you would need to put a ball valve in the line going to the falls to reduce the flow going in that direction.

I have a tetra FS2 fountain set. I want to have a fountain in my pond and a waterfall. The waterfall takes 1" tubing and I can't seem to get it to
Fall. I can't seem to get both connected at the same time. how can I do this? my pump is the 1900 GPH.
I can suggest some things to check, but you might want to email directly with more info on the layout and distance from pump to falls, how big the falls are, how high, etc.
There is a piece on the FS2 called the diverter. It has two "ports". One of those I assume you are using to connect the 1" tubing to and the other one has a knob that allows you to adjust the flow. This will divide it between the fountain and the waterfall. Try experimenting to make sure you have it all connected right. For example, turn the knob so no water goes to the fountain, all of it goes towards the waterfall, wait several minutes, and see what happens.

We purchased your Fountain Set for Statuary Pumps. On the packaging it has a picture and description of a "PPS1 CLEANS WATER AND PREVENTS CLOGGED PUMPS" Where do I find this product?
This was originally sold through Lowes, and was discontinued. You might try Menards or Meiers if you have one of those stores in your area, because they picked up some of the products Lowes stopped carrying.

Fountain for pond
Have a Tetra GPH 1900 which pumps water up to a 5 ft waterfall but would like to have a fountain also . How would this connect . My hose diameter is 1 1/4 do you have a T connector so I could divert
some water to the fountain but thinking about it by diverting water pressure
and flow from the water fall I may loose the pleasant effect of the waterfall . Or should I buy a separate pump/fountain
look forward to your input

We sell a fountain set that connects to that pump and allows you to run a fountain and a falls, but yes, you would lose some flow to the waterfall. If you do not want to lose any flowt here, I would recommend a separate pump and fountain kit. Our fountain kit, the FS2 will fit any of the WGP pumps, but without knowing how large a fountain you wish to have or how deep the pond is, I'm not sure which size to recommend. The WGP 550 is usually plenty.

what are the knobs for on the pipe
are they adapters to add more pipes on or are they shut off valves or what?
You have one that you use to adjust the direction the flow is going to go in, and how fast it goes. The others are for adaptors, so that you can also run a spitter or other ornament, or waterfall at the same time.

I just bought a DHP4200 pump for my small backyard pond. Do you sell a foutain head for this pump? If not, I am returning it.
That is a very large pump - for ponds up to 4,000 gallons. What size is your pond? If it's small, and you want a fountain head, look into the FK5 or FK6 Filtration Fountain Kits, for ponds between 50-250 and 250-500 gallons.
