MicroPondless Waterfalls Filter

This alternative use for Aquascape Pro's MicroSnorkel Vault and MicroCentipede Module allows for the creation of a waterfall and stream without a pond. Instead, a basin is excavated, lined with an EPDM liner and filled with layers of stone. Once the basin is filled with water, the water flows through the MicroCentipede Module and is circulated by a pump that sits at the bottom of the MicroSnorkel Vault. A notch at the top of the MicroSnorkel Vault accommodates the flexible PVC pipe that carries the water up to a BIOFALLS vault. The BIOFALLS vault then returns the water to the reservoir via a waterfall. Since the water level remains below the rock and gravel fill, it gives the appearance of a "pondless" waterfall and stream, yet provides plenty of water to run the waterfalls!

How the Pondless Waterfall Works:
The water held within the open spaces of the gravel flows down toward the MicroPondless Filter which is made up of the Centipede Module and the Snorkel Vault. From there, it gets pumped up to the BioFalls Filter (waterfall unit), where it flows by gravity back down through the gravel bed and MicroPondless Filter and the cycle begins again. Great for customers who don't want a pond... just a waterfall and stream

Perfect for public settings where child safety or the liabilities of a pond may be a concern

Virtually maintenance free - simply refill the reservoir every few weeks or add a water fill valve in the MicroSnorkel Vault to compensate for water loss due to evaporation

Great alternative for a front yard pond

No ecological need to run the system continuously

Utilize the MicroSnorkel Vault and MicroCentipede Module technology to house the pump and circulate the water

The waterfall simply disappears into a 4' x 6' gravel bed planted with aquatic marginal plants

Requires only 150 gallons of water in the 4' x 6' basin and 75 gallons of water in the BIOFALLS vault and waterfall
