Why California's Old Faithful Geyser in Calistoga is unique? How this natural mystery works? This Old Faithful Geyser is one of three geysers in the world with the designation "old faithful" That emerges from the ground and erupts in unique performance at regular intervals! The three geysers on the surface of earth that erupts at regular intervals are: Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful Geyser, the Taupo Geyser in New Zealand and Calistoga's Old Faithful Geyser among others less known to the public. Three factors are required to form such a Geyser: Intense heat that comes from magma near the surface of the earth usually found near a volcanic area or fault, a natural deep subterranean supply of water, a source of heat and a series of fissures, fractures and cavities that provide a path to the surface of the earth where water travels deep underground through pressurized fissures in the earth's crust. The third factor is a plumbing system that includes a strong natural reservoir to hold the boiling water geysers are generally found in volcanic layers aligned along faults. The plumbing system is made up of a system of fractures, fissures and cavities. Constrictions in the system are necessary to the building up of pressure before an eruption. The eruption is constituted from a rising steam from the boiling water underground that pulses and ejects the water swell upward in a spectacular performance!
