HD photographs of water fountain cleaning inside Jardins du Trocadero - Page 7

The Trocadero Gardens in the 16th Arrondissement are probably most famous for its fountain called the Fontaine du Trocadero, although it is also known as the Warsaw Fountain, which is the most impressive plus the largest water feature in Paris itself.

Jardins du Trocadero central water basin being cleaned
This first HD photo shows a view looking towards the Palais de Chaillot from the end of the Fontaine de Varsovie, which translates in English to the Fountain of Warsaw, but also known as the Trocadero Fountain due to its location within the gardens, this was originally put in place in 1937, becoming recognised throughout the world.
Workers cleaning water fountains in Jardins du Trocadero
Although the fountain is a spectacular sight when it is working, there are times when the Fontaine du Trocadero has to be drained for cleaning and essential maintenance works, just like you can see in this photograph where the entire Fontaine de Varsovie had been drained for this very reason.

However, for some it is quite fascinating to see the workings of what you would never normally see, like this close up showing one of the water jet systems that make up just a small section of the Trocadero Fountain spurting water several metres in the air.
View over empty central water basin in Jardins du Trocadero
Here is a view looking towards the Eiffel Tower over the Fontaine du Trocadero, also known as the Fontaine de Varsovie, which in English translates to the Warsaw Fountain, and standing by the water cannons you can see many of the water system elements that make up the spectacular sight when it is operational.
Panoramic of Jardins du Trocadero water fountains
Taken from the bottom of the Jardins du Trocadero which slope upwards on a hill to the Palais de Chaillot, here you can see a panoramic photograph of the Trocadero Fountain being cleaned after having been completely drained of water, which, along with maintenance, is something that not many people ever think about when they see this in full flow.
Bull and Deer water feature with square basin and water jets
Yet this shows part of the upper section of the Fontaine du Trocadero, with one of the two square basins, that would normally have a water cascade effect travelling down to the lower basin, along with water jets, and this part had already been emptied of rubbish and cleaned while we were there on this occasion.

Incredibly, when the basin is full of water, you do not see any of the pipes surrounding the statue, which provide a waterfall type of cascade effect before water flows from this square basin through those little holes to the basin below, and the Fontaine de Varsovie still works in the same way as when it was installed in 1937.
Fontaine du Trocadero water jet systems
Although this image shows a few of the different mechanisms for the fountain water display, which was completely renovated in 2011 with a new pumping system installed so that the arches of water, the different jets, some reaching seven metres in height and others four meters in height, could still function as they were designed to, for the enjoyment of millions.
