NATURAL LOOKING WATERFALLS
What is a pondless waterfall? A beautiful natural looking waterfall, cascading over natural rock and boulders, meandering down a small stream over natural gravel, making its final descent over a flat stone that creates a wonderful sheet of water, disappearing pondlessly into a bed of ornamental gravel. It’s called a disappearing pondless waterfall because the water level never pools above the level of the rock and gravel fill, giving it the appearance of a disappearing waterfall and stream.
How does it work? The water is captured in an underground basin, which houses the pump equipment, and is lined and filled with rock and gravel. The water is circulated from beneath the rocks and gravel by the concealed submersible pump and travels through an underground pipe to the waterfall, down the stream and empties into the pondless basin.
Why a pondless waterfall? The pondless waterfall is virtually maintenance-free. It may be set to run on a timer and have an auto-fill to replace evaporated water. There is no ecological need to run the pondless waterfalls energy-efficient waterscapes system continuously, versus a pond, which is a living, breathing ecosystem that needs constant oxygen, just like humans. It is great for people who want to enjoy the sound and tranquility of running water, but don’t want to fuss with the maintenance of a pond.
