A alternative to a pond and waterfall

A great alternative other than a pond

   If you do not want fish and are looking for just a
waterfall, a pondless waterfall is for you. This child
and pet safe water feature is very low maintenance.
When the water recirculates down the waterfall and
through the gravel basin area, the water gets filtrated.
  Run the waterfall at your own leisure. Leave the
waterfall off when you are not home. It is not neccesary
to run this waterfall 24 hours a day like a pond should. 

               A Pondless Waterfall does not have to run 24 hours a day 


  • Low maintenance
  • Child safe zero water depth
  • Does not have to run 24 hours
  • No fish 


What is a pondless waterfall?

How a pondless waterfall works.

how a pondless
waterfall is built

   A pondless waterfall is a waterfall

without a pond. The waterfall's pump is

in a pump vault in the gravel pondless

basin area. The water is pumped up from

the gravel basin area to a spillway.

The spillway recycles the water down the

waterfall into a stream, which leads back 

into the pondless gravel basin. 

   A Pondless waterfall is very popular for 

people who want a a low maintenance,

a child safe, fish free water feature.
