An interesting smaller geyser that is not too crowded. Walk the boardwalk right to it and get a great picture taken. We hit it in the morning on a calm day. Sometimes steam vent gasses can cover you up if the wind is just right.

The geyser continually erupts. It is in the lower geyser basin are it's at the far end of the loop from the parking area. You want to watch out for the splash when you check it out. Certainly not the most impressive geyser but one of the most reliable.

Clepsydra Geyser: is located near Lower Geyser Basin loop towards the Fountain Paint Pot trail-head. It erupts frequently and the eruption last for a long time. You can watch this geyser so closely compared to Old faithful that you have to watch from really far away.
Since it is less crowded you can always get a awesome spot for your picture or video. Looks like it is always erupting and you don’t have to wait for a long time either. This is probably the only geyser in Yellowstone that you can watch the eruption just couple of yards away from the boardwalk. You will definitely get the water sprayed at you!!

When we visited, the nearby Fountain Geyser was erupting. It reached a height of about 100 feet and lasted for more than 10 minutes while we were there. In comparison, the Clepsydra Geyser was dwarfed in appearance and looked more like a broken sprinkler head. But it does have the lake as a backdrop and when it is the only geyser erupting, it is better than nothing.

It's located in the Fountain paint pot area, in Lower geyser basin, when I went there from 7:30-8pm in mid-July, I saw it's eruption when I approaching it, and keep on erupting even after I leave, then I don't know when it will stop, actually, there are 3 openings of water and steam come out, I think it's a group of geyser, I saw there are sign showing "Celpsydra geyser" and "spasm geyser", (but according to Wikipedia, spasm geyser only emits up to 3 feet, but what I saw is 10 feet, so I think one of the opening (the one with lower water height emitted) is spasm geyser, but the one emitted higher water may be the Clepsydra geyser, also there are jet geyser in this area, Fountain geyser, morning geyser and Twig geyser are nearby, but I didn't see the name tag, anyway, if you want to see geyser eruption, I recommend to come here to see, you won't be disappointed, it seems to me that it always erupting, and with reasonable high, I think the height of water emitted is comparable to the old faithful's (I also saw the old faithful eruption), but compared to old faithful, you no need to wait for it's eruption here, it seems always erupting, even you need to wait, may be just a few minutes, and the height is comparable to old faithful, and it's much much less crowded, and you can always find good spot to see and film it, and you can take closer look to the geyser, no need to sit far from the geyser just like in the old faithful. I really love it, and if next time go to Yellowstone, I probably will visit it again, but in the middle of the day (not on the sunset time) so that I can see it's true beauty, with the sunshine on it, I think it would be more beautiful and can see the color of the pool and the color of the cone that the geysers made.

If you walk around the fountain paint pots trail in a clockwise direction, Clepsydra is on your right just after Fountain Geyser. If you go clockwise it will be on your left after you crest a hill, immediately after the now unmarked Jelly geyser.
You will read it’s become erratic. In fact, new behavior is just that: it is still very reliable. Instead of a common shutdown period of five or so minutes about 15-30 minutes Fountain ends, now it have several breaks but as the energy in the multigeyser system builds, it erupts steadily and dependably until after the next fountain cycle ends. On Saturday, 12 May, there were three off periods lasting from 5-7 minutes which is similar to what I recorded last October and a year ago on 15 May, the day before Sidekick Geyser, just to the right and slightly closer, is reputed to have begun erupting, but I saw sidekick’s pool level rising and falling, modifying Clepsydras behavior the day before.
Please read of how it changed dramatically in the past 58 years ago in the $1 self guided booklet at the trailhead.
Outside of the pamphlet, there is a lot of information out there that doesn’t hold water. One tour guide who was born and raised in the region told his guests before the change last year that “Clepsydra never shuts down.” By definition a geyser is periodic, even if shutdowns are short. He’d just never taken the time to see for himself. Other guides pronounce it Clep-sigh-druh which makes sense if you consider hydra means water. But Ckepsydra (water clock) is a Greek word, not Latin: it is pronounced Clep-See-Druh.
Funny thing, “Clep” is Greek for thief not clock but the meaning has taken hold and is accepted: it “steals” water so predictably, you could almost set your clock by it, before 17 August, 1959. In the Gugong, the “Forbidden City” in Beijing, China, imagine my surprise when I came upon a large brass ball full of holes labeled clearly as a “Clepsydra!”
But the beauty of this place is you can see this for yourself if you take the time. Clepsydra is an eminently dependable geyser, for now. If it’s not erupting as you approach it just wait a few minutes. Until the next big change, I expect it will start up again in five or slightly more minutes, as it has been doing for decades.
