What Are Pondless Waterfalls
There’s nothing quite as exquisite as seeing a unique and finely crafted waterfall with your koi pond, maybe even more interesting is when that waterfall is a pondless one. A pondless waterfall is merely a revamped waterfall or stream without the presence of a pond. Pondless waterfalls are operated by pumping water contained in a large reservoir up and through the waterfall spillway and down beautifully placed boulders back into the hidden reservoir. This simple system requires very little maintenance, can be installed in as little as one day, and ideal for homes with infants or domesticated animals that just can’t resist the urge to have fun in the water.

Pondless Waterfall Installation
Now that you’ve taken out hours or possibly days from your busy schedule to create the perfect pondless waterfall, it is only natural that you take out time to maintain it such that it’ll have a proper lifespan. You can do this in a variety of ways such as:
- Cleaning up Algae
Largely harmless in the grand scheme of things but super ugly thanks to the way it gathers up in the most vintage of spots. Algae has the unique yet notorious talent of making facilities look unkempt and unattractive. They form based on having a steady supply of moisture, sunlight and organic material. Hence, the best way to combat it is to cut off the algae’s supply route. This can be done by regularly cleaning and removing the algae from your treasured rocks.
- Tidying the Debris
Debris isn’t a new thing when talking about aquatic components, as such it’s not such a bad thing. Pondless waterfalls typically contain various sizes of rocks, which form crevices that trap debris, such as leaves and twigs. To aid your waterfall’s beauty ensure you make out time to rid the surroundings of the debris and cut off the supply route as soon as possible. Remember, prevention is better than cure.
- Curb the Evaporation
The scariest part of having this facility is the possible evaporation of your hard work. While pondless waterfalls use significantly less water than a waterfall installed in a pond, due to the constant recycling of water, this water will eventually evaporate and you will need to refill the reservoir. Ensure that you have proper connections and a fantastic reservoir to regularly tend to your waterfall. I mean, what’s the beauty of such a facility without the water?
