The Pondless waterfall

System Attributes:

  • Great for customers who don't want a pond... just a waterfall and stream.
  • Perfect for public settings where child safety or the liabilities of a pond may be a concern.
  • Virtually maintenance free! Simply refill the reservoir every few weeks or add a water fill valve in the Snorkel™ Vault to compensate for water loss due to evaporation.
  • Great alternative for a front yard pond.
  • No ecological need to run the system continuously.

This alternative use for Aquascape Designs Snorkel™ Vault and Centipede™ Module allows for the creation of a waterfall and stream without a pond. Instead, a basin is excavated, lined with an EPDM liner and filled with layers of stone. Once the basin is filled with water, the water flows through the Centipede Module and is circulated by a pump that sits at the bottom of the Snorkel™ Vault. A notch at the top of the Snorkel™ Vault accommodates the flexible pvc pipe that carries the water up to a BIOFALLS® filter. The BIOFALLS® filter then returns the water to the reservoir via a waterfall. Since the water level remains below the rock and gravel fill, it gives the appearance of a "pondless" waterfall and stream yet provides plenty of water to run the waterfalls!


System Features:
  • Create up to a 6' waterfall and stream with the pondless waterfall kit or customize a kit for a larger feature.
  • Utilize the Snorkel™ Vault and Centipede™ Module technology to house the pump and circulate the water.
  • The waterfall simply disappears into a 4' x 6' gravel bed planted with aquatic marginal plants.
  • 150 gallons of water in 4' x 6' basin and 75 gallons of water in BIOFALLS® filter and waterfall.
