One Of The Hottest Trends In Water Gardening


What’s a Disappearing Pondless waterfall you ask? As simple as it seems and exactly what it sounds like, a waterfall minus the pond = pondless. What do you think about that!! Just a few years ago our pond installation crew was submerged in pond and waterfall installations, here in Naperville, Wheaton, Dupage County & Chicagoland, Illinois, so heavily, the thought never crossed our minds and now this Disappearing Pondless waterfall phenomenon is a significant percentage of our construction installations.

Where Does The Water Go ?


Pondless (Also called Disappearing) water feature systems are perfect for schools, businesses and those who want a front yard water feature, travel frequently, have young children or limited space. It's called a disappearing pondless waterfall because the water does not form a pond but instead disappears into an underground pondless reservoir beneath rock and gravel.


The water is pumped to the waterfall or rock fountain, and disappears into the pondless basin, which contains the pump chamber and pump. These water features can also have a stream incorporated into the design for added interest. The modular equipment in the pondless waterfall basin beneath the rocks and gravel is strong enough for more than ten adults to stand on.
