What is a pondless waterfall?

What is a pondless waterfall? A pondless waterfall is a waterfall or stream that disappears into a bed of river rock instead of a pool of water. The pump is located below the gravel in the pump vault where the water circulates back up to the top of the pondless waterfall spillway. In essence, it is a waterfall or stream minus a pond. Thus the name, pondless waterfall.

Q: What is an Eco-blox and why is it necessary in a pondless waterfall kit?

A:  Simply put, Eco-blox were designed to contain water. An Eco-blox consists of 8 rectangular panels that snap together to form a 27.5”L x 16”W x 17.5”H box that holds 31.5 gallons of water. A pondless basin filled with Eco-blox holds three times as much water than one backfilled solely with cobble. So you can dig one-third the basin, move one-third the soil, and forget about the cost and effort of all that cobble to fill in the rest of the basin. If you were to fill in the basin area with only a pump vault and cobble, there would be no space for water to collect. The pump would run dry before the water had a chance to fully circulate up to the spillway box and come back down the stream. When purchasing a pondless waterfall kit, make sure your kit includes eco-blox.

"Normally when a seller (you) provides a product to a consumer (me), one expects a good product with good service and in turn you expect to be paid. In this case, all of that happened flawlessly. But you took it a step further and sincerely tried your best to assist me in making this a worthwhile project that makes me look good and at the same time, hopefully, makes you look good. Each of you were very helpful and responsive to my questions and concerns. Thank you very much and I have elevated this relationship to one of friendship.”
