Key Features:

  • 1" FPT Inlet
  • Rear entry port(s)
  • Stainless steel
  • Top quality, heavy-duty construction
  • Fantastic water sound
  • Good for pond aeration
  • Can be used indoors or out 1-year manufacturer's limited warranty
  • For a clear sheet of water, keep the waterfall height limited to about 3 ft. above the pond water level - higher falls will cause the sheet to break up and the waterfall to taper near the bottom
  • White, Blue and Color-changing Lights Available - Lights face forward

Helpful Hint from Supplier on Construction:

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.

The depth of the water is not important. But having enough water volume would be important. You would not want to  turn pump on and drain all the water out of the reservoir. Volume is more important than depth. Some people have water fall on decorative stone and not fall on standing water. This would be like a pondless waterfall. The pump recommendation is listed with each falls.

The lip extends out 2" from reservoir on the SEG2035. When water is pumped through this unit at the recommended gph, the water fall extends possible 1" further away from wall. Remind the customer that putting in a  larger pump will not cause water to extend out further from wall. It just will bubble in reservoir and cause the sheet of water to not look like a sheet of water.

F.A.Q.

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. 

 

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.r enough away from wall.


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.
