find an old sattelite dish and use that for the top surface (oriented like an umbrella, not a bowl). Paint it black and staple (or drill and lace with wire) the hardware cloth to the bottom edge.
Besides the diameter of the PVC, my pump requires at least 1" of standing water, does there seem to be any problems with this? Or know of another material to replace the rebar besides PVC?

The 500 gallon per hour pump was ample. For those of you with bigger
pumps and high wind problems , try clamping hose and restricting flow as needed. A simple plastic (hot and cold) cup having the correct kind of rolled lip, filled and placed next to the upwards water stream helped direct the flow down and out and made a cool fountain effect. I'm going to gussy it up, run with el wire at night, drill some small holes in the ply, do a cascading fountain and place it in front of our camp next year, . The captions in back adorned our rent-a-rv. Thanks El Subcomandante and crew !
