Disappearing or pondless waterfalls are becoming popular with the backyard gardener who wants more for the outdoor spaces. The disappearing waterfall is a great way to incorporate a dynamic effect to accent the hard surfaces and plantings of the patio garden for the sophisticated homeowner. These waterfalls are refreshing and virtually maintenance free and create a tranquil effect for the homeowner. They are a simple closed system with an unseen filter below a couple of inches of 1″-2″ sized ornamental stones where the pump is located. The beauty is in the details of the stones, drops, pools, and cascades to create a spectacular overall effect with the soothing sounds of moving water. The pump pushes the water up and the falls return the water to the filter and the cycle repeats itself. Pondless waterfalls are the perfect option for the homeowner that enjoys water without the once a year maintenance of the koi pond.
