Looking For Landscape Ideas ? Look into - "Pondless Waterfalls", Or Disappearing Waterfalls, Low Maintenance Additions To Enhance Your Outdoor Lifestyle !
Denville, Morris County New Jersey, (NJ)
If your looking for great landscape ideas in Morris County, New Jersey ( NJ ) or the surrounding areas, look into having Atlantis Water Gardens install a Pondless® Waterfall for you. Pondless Waterfalls, or disappearing waterfalls, are simply a re-circulating waterfall and/or stream without the presence of a pond. You can enjoy the sight and sound of running water without the maintenance of a pond.
So why would you want a waterfall without a pond? The truth is that a Pondless® Waterfall isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great alternative for someone who isn’t quite sure if an ecosystem pond is right for their family.
So How Does It Work ?
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.
The small size of the Pondless® Waterfall means you can build and enjoy a beautiful waterfall anywhere in you yard.
Taking care of your Pondless® Waterfall is easy. Filling the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for water loss because of evaporation is all that’s required.
Because there is no pool of water, a Pondless® Waterfall is a great option if you are concerned about safety issues associated with a traditional pond.
Cost can be a big factor when considering the type of pond you want to build. In most cases, the price of a Pondless® waterfall will be less than a pond, because there is less labor involved, as well as less rock and materials. Operating costs are also less. Because you’re not dealing with an established ecosystem, it’s not necessary to run the pump 24/7.
FLEXIBILITY Perhaps the best part of the Pondless® Waterfall is the possibility for the future. If you change your mind later, wishing you’d build a pond, that’s ok! If you leave enough room around the base of the waterfall, it’s easy to add a pond onto a Pondless® Waterfall.
COMPLETE SYSTEM - It might be difficult to imagine a waterfall and stream without a pond. Where does the water go? A Pondless® Waterfall works much like a regular pond. The excavation is dug, then lined EPDM liner and underlayment, Aquablox on pump vault installed, and then filled with water. The water is then circulated from beneath the rocks and gravel by a pump that sits on the bottom, inside a Snorkel™ Vault and Centipede™ Module.
A pipe runs from there up to a BioFalls™ Filter and into an overflowing waterfall, where it falls back into the reservoir. Since the water level never pools above the level of the rock and gravel fill, it give the appearance of a waterfall without a pond, when in fact, the “pond” is there but not visible.
