None,

the Yellowstone National Parks Service... nps dot gov webpage- list this:

"Eruptions average 100 feet (31 m) high, with some rare “superbursts” of 200 feet (61 m) or more. Eruptions last 45-60 minutes in a series of bursts. Great Fountain Geyser takes 10-14 hours to rebuild to an eruption. The pool slowly fills, then begins to overflow 70-100 minutes before the eruption."

Thank you for the opportunity of this education from that one webpage, it is appreciated- it even had "all geyser predictions," beautiful pictures, usage of underground seismic waves to map Old Faithful.
