The majority of people have no idea where to start and look for a professional to install their own piece of paradise. We would actually suggest this for everyone, but there are some of you out there that want to tackle the installation themselves. For you luckily manufacturers have assembled turnkey kits with everything you need… minus the rocks, gravel, and plants.
Most All Available Kits Will Come With Some Of The Following Items
Waterfall Source Points
The main source of your disappearing waterfall sets the tone for your entire water feature. Most manufacturers have products specifically designed to allow water to flow or diffuse currents to gently allow water to cascade at the start of the waterfall. These units come in many shapes and sizes to fit some small space requirements. Ask your local pond store what options they carry to fit your design.
A pump vault is just as it sounds, it’s where the pump lives during the operation of your waterfall. The proper way to install your pump is to also have access to it for service and maintenance. Most of these units are designed for total customization of pump sizes and can be easily modified to circulate larger volumes of water for larger waterfall or stream systems. Ask your local pond store which works best for you.
Pumps & Plumbing
The one thing that all disappearing waterfall kits have in common is that they all have to incorporate some sort of pump to circulate water. As well as the proper tubing and plumbing parts to put it all together. Most kits come with the proper flexible tubing needed for the proper pump size. If you’re unsure what size pumps or tubing to use, ask your local pond shop what would be the correct size for your design.
Rubber Liner & Basins
There are a few ways to store the water underground in your Disappearing waterfall designs. While there are some self contained units that can be buried to hide, most basins are constructed using EPDM rubber liners. This rubber liner allows you to create a custom size basin to fit your design application. Disappearing waterfall vaults can be a couple hundred gallons, or 100,000 or larger. Totally Customizable…
Water Storage Blocks
When designing your custom basin the use of one of the many brands of water storage blocks would be the heart of the water storage system. These blocks generally come in two sizes, and store from 14 to 30 gallons or so of water each. They can be installed in a wide variety of configurations to fit most all space, size, and budget constraints. These systems are popular display features at local pond stores.
Some of the disappearing waterfall kits available on the market today come standard with LED lighting fixtures. The size of the kit will depend on how many lights, connecting wires, wire connectors, and power transformers come standard with each kit size. If your kit doesn’t come lights your local pond store will most likely sell a variety of lighting products to add to your kit or current water feature.
