What is a pondless waterfall??

Have you ever been driving around Long Island and come across a beautiful waterfall out of nowhere. You probably have seen them at gas stations, community homes, catering venues, the front yard of a home. Do you ever just wonder, how does it work?? Where is the water coming from?? Where does the water go!?! I sure would love something like that. And we don’t blame you! Who wouldn’t, there is nothing better than sitting around drinking your favorite beverage relaxing by the soothing sounds of a waterfall after a long stressful day. Here is a short read on what a pondless waterfall is so you can understand how it works.

A pondless waterfall is exactly what it sounds like, it’s a waterfall without a pond. Normally you see waterfalls that fall into a pond or pool, however a pondless waterfall is a waterfall without a body of water. A pondless waterfall can be small or large, can be simple or extravagant and can fit in any space. Whether you are debating on a small, medium, or large pondless waterfall project, one thing we can grantee is any size will have a large impact on your living space. It will be the focal point of the outdoor space, creating a welcoming place to relax by and enjoy the tranquil sounds of water. Pondless waterfalls have the lowest maintenance out of other water features, making them super easy to maintain. Pondless waterfalls are also a great option for parents who want a water feature however are concerned about the safety of young children around a body water without supervision, since they do not have a standing body water. Another benefit of a pondless waterfall is the fact that you don’t have to keep it running 24/7 like a pond, you can turn it on and off whenever you want.

How a pondless waterfall works is super simple. There is an underground reservoir where the pump is housed, as well where the water is contained. The water is carried through the pump, through the plumbing pipe to the top of the waterfall where the water comes out of a waterfall diffuser. The water cascades down the waterfall rocks and disappears back into the hidden underground reservoir, restarting the cycle. The beautiful thing is all these plastic components are completely disguised and not visible, making it a truly beautiful natural work of art.

As always, we recommend doing extensive research before hiring a water feature contractor for your project. As the old saying goes, “It is always cheaper to do the job right the first time.” Even if the price you pay the first time is higher than other bids, there is a reason why.
