If the water is going into a pond, the size of the pond in square feet of surface area needs to be 1 1/2 times the square footage of your waterfall and stream. For example, if your waterfall and stream is 20 feet long and 3 feet wide, then the pond should be 90 sq. feet.
This is to allow the pond to capture all the water from the stream and waterfall when the waterfall is turned off without the water overflowing the pond.
If there is not room to accommodate the size of the pond, then a different technology can be used call a Pondless Waterfall. To learn more about this technology, call one of our consultants at 888-600-7224.
One of our design consultants will help you determine the appropriate size of your waterfall pool or basin.
