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.
