F.A.Q.


Customer Question: I wanted to check and see if these units will support a 3" concrete cap placed on top of them. This is to hide the unit on the top of the wall and under the cap.

Supplier's Answer: These units are constructed very well. It should hold the cap if the cap is wider than 12". I think it would work better if the cap extended to a greater width than the stainless steel sheer falls. The cap could rest on the edges of the sheer falls. I should remind you that when set up correctly, the water falling from the weir is a beautiful, solid sheet of water. But the sheet will break up if weir is mounted too high from basin. The wider the sheer falls the longer the sheet will fall without breaking. The 12" unit will fall as a sheet for approx 18" to 20". After that, the water sheer will break up. I wanted to make sure customer realizes the solid sheet does not fall for ever.

Customer Question: What is the maximum height it can be installed without the pattern breaking up?

Supplier's Answer: The rule of thumb is that water should fall in a sheet approximately the width of falls. 24" falls 24", 36" fall 36" and so forth.


Question: How do I install the top plate on top of the falls if I want to use Cinder blocks above the falls?

Answer: Please note that NONE of the Calais units are load bearing nor intended to be in a load bearing situation. The installation processes are numerous & only limited by the creativity of the installer itself. One common method of installation is by notching into the wall material (stone or concrete blocks) to accommodate a load bearing lintel (steel grade L brackets) so that the units can still reside free from any weight.

Although the diagram below is for the acrylic sheer falls, this applies to all of the weirs in our Calais collection.

Basically, you may want to build it tilted slightly forward and build a frame so that the Sheerfalls can be easily removed from the back for maintanence.

Customer Question: Does the lip need to stick out or can it be fit flush?

Supplier's Answer: It can be flush, but the water may fall too close to wall. The wall can "pull" water toward the wall if not falling far enough away from wall.

Customer Question: Assuming I use Aquasurge 4000, how far from the end of the exit port should I expect the water to fall? I assume almost vertical (i.e. less than 6 inches)?

Supplier's Answer: The water will not extend out from sheer falls very far before it falls in an arch toward reservoir. At the falls, it is less than 6", but will extend out a bit because of the arch. This is one product that you will not be able to adjust how the water flows from unit. A ball that is included will allow for finding the correct flow to make the sheet of water look at its best. Once you find the flow that looks the best, most people would leave ball valve alone. It's not a product where adjustments can make the water flow at higher rate. Baffles inside unit will not allow for more flow.

Customer Question:

I am attempting to connect the SEG5020. The nut that connects to the bottom does not fit any of the adaptor at my local pool store. (And they have an extensive supply of adapters) The threads don't match up. Is it possible that the nut is imperial and because I live in Canada my connector is Metric?

Supplier's Answer::

Tell them to take the white couple off the threaded inlet and try putting a female adapter right on those threads. No need for the white coupler that comes on the unit. Give that a try. It often works.



Helpful Construction Hint from Supplier:

The Sheer Falls would be mounted above water level, so most likely well above the Firestone liner. Most Sheer Falls are installed when wall is being constructed. If the above ground pond is 24" deep, then Sheer Falls would be approx18" to 36" above the water level, depending how wide the Sheer Falls the customer installs. The more narrow the falls, the shorter distance water will fall in the perfect sheet that most desire. The customer would need to have a pump installed in pond with tubing from the pump going through the wall somehow and up to the rear of Sheer Falls. The water then cascades back in the pond. If customer wants to provide a drawing, we could be more specific. But not all concrete blocks are the same. He would have to be able to improvise in the real world to mount in blocks. Most likely, he would have to do some cutting of the blocks to make it work.
