Are you interested in installing a water feature in your yard, but concerned about the safety and liabilities of having a pond? Or are you apprehensive about taking on the responsibility of maintaining a full-fledged ecosystem? The pondless waterfall is basically a waterfall and stream, without the pond. Pondless waterfalls are the hottest trend in landscaping today.

  • 90% of all Purely Ponds’ installations are pondless waterfalls
  • Great alternative for a front yard pond; fits in small spaces where a pond might be crowded
  • Perfect for public setting where liabilities of a pond are a concern
  • Virtually maintenance -free! Simply refill the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for water loss due to evaporation
  • Energy efficient – no ecological need to run the system continuously
  • Set a timer – ideal for vacations and night/day settings
  • No ecosystem (fish and plants) to worry about

We have the equipment available for the Do It Yourself installer who wants to purchase and install his/her very own pondless waterfall.

Is it hard for you to imagine a waterfall and stream without a pond? Are you wondering: Where does the water come from? Where does the water go?

Well, it actually works much like the equipment in a pond. A hole, deeper than a normal pond, is dug, then lined with underlayment and a 45 mil liner. The pump vault is installed and then the basin is lined with rock and gravel, and filled with water. The water is then circulated from beneath the rocks and gravel by a pump that is housed in the snorkel vault. A pipe runs from the vault up to a BIOFALLS filter and into an overflowing waterfall and stream, where it falls back into the reservoir and the cycle begins again – the ultimate circulatory system! Since the water level in the reservoir basin never pools above the level of the rock and gravel fill, it gives the appearance of a pondless waterfall.
