How do i install a bird bath pump on my birdbath?
The best thing to do wold be to find a birdbath that already has the plumbing but barring that you could look for a battery or solar powered floating fountain pump.
This bb is fired ceramic so if you still want to drill, I imagine you'd have use a diamond bit on it. The recirculating pump could sit at the bottom of the stand but you'd need to gasket the hole(s) to prevent leaks. (You'd a supply line to the fountain and a return line back down to the pump). You'd also have to arrange for a power supply.
Another thing to keep in mind is that with a fountain, you can lose as much as 50% of your water to evaporation so you'd have to keep an eye on the water level.
How do i measure my birdbath, So i can use the right pump on this birdbath? What pump size?
Pumps are usually rated in gallons per hour. You wouldn't need anything very big. I guess I'd see how much water the basin holds and go from there.
I wonder if a pet shop that specializes in exotics might have something you could use.
