      OOOOOOOOO, Jmart, that is gorgeous!! I take it the deck behind and above houses the filtration? I love how you did it. Can't wait to see with the lights. I just LOVE landscape lighting.

      still lookin?

      Still checking out waterfalls?

      I'm so jealous of people who actually have terrain to work with. I had to build up this waterfall against the fence (using a retaining wall)

      I'm guessing 1500-2000gph (pump rated for 3400 max flow at zero head)
      inlet pipe comes in over the liner, above water level, hidden behind rocks:
      - no worries about leaks;
      - no back-flow when pump is turned off.

      several pockets/bogs along the way, each one about one foot deep:
      - one at top (no plants),
      - large plant bog at left
      - long plant bog along right, leading to smaller waterfall at far right

      Second pic is a side view to give you a better 3d idea of the falls. They look kind of flat in the first pic.

      am I allowed another?

      for the less ambitious:
      guess 200 gph, pump rated at 300gph @ 0 head
      Actually this was my first pond/waterfall that inspired me to build the second one (posted above)

      Both are spectacular. I'm getting some great ideas for when it's my turn to build one. Tex, your diverted bog pockets are a great idea.

      Janet, your water fall is so lush and gorgeous....

      wow!!!

      I feel kinda bad showing my water fall cause it does not even come close to the quality of everyone elses BUT if you have a skippy biofilter waterfall ,short on space as you can see with no room to work or hide it you just work with it until you get something you can live with so for now this is mine...I'm only showing it cause it takes all kinds and its the best I can do for now....I would love to have ANY of the other waterfalls...they are all so beautiful so after you see mine you can REALLY appreciate these others but maybe someelse could offer different ideas even for me.....it works though...I used every bit of space I had for the pond itself...kinda like the old saying backed myself into a corner...LOL oh well....when the plants fill in you can't see the white pvc pipe for all the potato vines I planted ...it will look all junglely in another month!

      During the construction of any of these waterfalls was there any Great Stuff expansion foam used?
      I've tried to search but I keep getting errors. Must be down.
      Is it safe for the fish when cured?

      I think most of us have used great stuff. I know I sure have!!! Absolutly no problems with using it in the pond. They even make it in black just for ponds. It is a good way to fill the voids behind rocks to direct the water to the front of the waterfalls.

      I've used the Great Stuff and the "waterfall foam" that usually comes in black, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the black stuff over the yellow. Great Stuff requires dry surfaces, and over time, particularly if submerged, will separate from the rocks. On the other hand, the black stuff actually requires that the surfaces be wet or moist, because this causes the material to bond with the surfaces, and remains glued.

      I used both on a pond that I had to tear down after 2 years. (to rebuild a bigger one . When I broke down the waterfall, the yellow stuff typically just fell off, or was easily pulled off. The black stuff was fairly permanent, In one case I had two flat rocks "glued" together by the black stuff, and I couldn't separate them.

      This isn't very close up but I deleted all my older photos from my computer. We wish we would have ordered enough liner to make a stream/waterfall, but we didn't. Some day, we may rebuild it, but it would take ALOT of work and rock moving so I don't think it will happen any time soon. LOL Here is mine anyway....

      I thank both of you. Now I will be off to search for the black. No problems finding yellow.
      Great seeing all the pics. They've helped alot in the construction of my falls still not completed.

      You all should be very proud of your falls. All are so different, yet so beautiful in their own way. I'm lovin' all the different ideas. Thanks to everyone who is posting.

      Mitch,
      Your pond is lovely. Do you have any means of camouflaging that TT? The pond is so pretty, but that TT is a big eyesore which takes away from the beauty of your hard work. And that shouldn't be anything any one of us has to deal with after all that labor.
