Water Wheels

There is something about a Water wheel that is so enticing. Maybe it reminds us of better times. Slower times when things where not so hectic and fast. Like sitting in front of a pond watching the Koi play and the water lilies grow. Slow and relaxing.

What is a Water wheel?

A water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of free-flowing or falling water into useful forms of power, often in a watermill. A water wheel consists of a large wooden or metal wheel, with a number of blades or buckets arranged on the outside rim forming the driving surface. Most commonly, the wheel is mounted vertically on a horizontal axle, but the tub or Norse wheel is mounted horizontally on a vertical shaft. Vertical wheels can transmit power either through the axle or via a ring gear and typically drive belts or gears; horizontal wheels usually directly drive their load.

Water wheels were still in commercial use well into the 20th century, but they are no longer in common use. Prior uses of water wheels include milling flour in gristmills and grinding wood into pulp for paper making, but other uses include hammering wrought iron, machining, ore crushing and pounding fiber for use in the manufacture of cloth.

Although now Water wheels are just a bit of a novelty they make beautiful falls into a water garden or pond. Don’t forget to add aquatic plants like Arrowhead or Pennywort to give it just the right touch
