|The pipes and pump systems are isometrically designed and made of special stainless steel|
A cathodic system was installed in 1987 to protect the pipelines from the corrosive effects of the falling seawater, consisting of fifty-seven anodes and twenty-nine reference electrodes at seventeen points along the systemIt took over two years of constant development to arrive at the current successful design, which has resulted in not only a record-setting water fountain, but has brought about the first real development of specialized knowledge on high pressure seawater Facts you will know for the first time about the King Fahd Fountain The King Fahd Fountain has become a landmark that is the perfect postcard for Jeddah.

|Water exits the pumps via a 350 meter high-pressure output line constructed with steadily decreasing diameters towards the nozzles||The spots are mounted on special islands|
