Scupper bowls are a charming feature that can really set your outdoor area apart from the neighbors’. We have a variety of round concrete options for you to choose from. Whether you are looking to create a customized spillway for your pool or tiered scupper bowl fountains for your garden, our water scuppers and bowls are exactly what you need. With a simple water line connection, you can add a touch of whimsy to your flower garden, or deliver relief from the summertime heat for your feathered friends.
Choose from a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. With the precast concrete bowls, color is mixed into cement during pouring, so there is no need to 'touch up' your concrete pool scuppers. Both the concrete and copper pool scuppers are durable enough to last for years – even in inclement weather, but we do recommend draining the water from your water features before freezing temperatures arrive. A pre-drilled hole in the bottom of the bowl allows you to thread your waterline through and a protective sealant around the hole prevents leaking.
The copper water bowls will develop a patina over time when exposed to the elements and is part of the natural oxidation process of the material. For the removal of patina, we recommend the simple DIY recipe of 1/2 cup of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of baking soda with a soft bristle brush to prevent scratching.
What exactly is a "scupper" bowl?
A scupper is a type of waterspout. These bowls feature a scupper at the top that allows water to flow from the basin into a pool or other reservoir below.
Do scupper bowls include water pumps?
Scupper bowls are designed to be connected to an existing plumbing system, and therefore do not come with a water pump. For example, if your swimming pool recycles water, you can use a scupper bowl to supplement the existing pump jets.
What is the advantage to adding a scupper bowl to my pool, fountain, or pond?
Flow is an essential part of any water feature. When water flows into water, air is mixed in. This simple process helps to prevent stagnant water and also stops algae from building up. In a pond with fish, it will help maintain the overall health of the fish by supplying extra oxygen to the water.
Why do some bowls come with a copper insert for the scupper lip?
The copper insert not only adds a decorative touch, but also helps protect the concrete lip from erosion caused by the constant flow of water.

Can I use fire glass in my scupper bowl?
