What is a Pondless Waterfall?
Standing water can be scary for people with young children. We all know how fast children move, and the thought of having a pond so close to their play areas discourages some from considering a water garden. Other people feel that taking care of fish would be too much of a responsibility and that they won’t be able to take proper care of it, or mosquitoes might become an issue. Others say they don’t have the room for a whole pond. The pondless waterfall is for all the people that have these concerns, but are still in love with waterfalls. A perfect solution for landscapes with limited space.
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.
Waterfalls are perhaps the most beautiful feature in a water garden. You can argue that you love your fish the most, or that your gorgeous water lilies are the favorite part of your pond, or your underwater pond lighting looks spectacular at night, but the waterfall is what really makes it special. Not only is it beautiful, but it also serves a valuable purpose in your ecosystem by aerating the water for your fish and holding the beneficial bacteria that keeps your pond algae free. But could a waterfall survive without a pond? Sure it can. And the concept of a waterfall minus the pond is called “The Disappearing Pondless® Waterfall.”
