We just finished this really fun project in Burnsville, NC. Our clients had an existing Koi pond that was failing. It was an old wooden structure the retained the pond.
We talked about options to fix the feature and deck that a rebuilt was needed. So we made plans to create a new outdoor space around the pond. The finished design incorporated a new dedicated Koi pond, a Pondless waterfall, stone stairs and a dry laid flagstone patio.
The pond ended up being 10×15 ft by 6 ft deep. We installed a rotating drum filter with a moving bed biological filtration system. This filter is top of the line and automatically cleans itself!
Below the pond we installed a Pondless waterfall with a Filtrific filter. We installed this waterfall seem as it flows out of the pond, but it’s a separate system.
We also installed a stone slab stairway that wrapped around the pond and leads you down to the lower waterfall.
There is a stone bridge over the falls that makes a great feature.
It was an amazing project to be a part of. And I’m very thankful to be able to work with such awesome clients!
Here’s a quick video of a waterfall rebuild we just finished in Hendersonville, Nc.
The original feature was a traditional Pondless waterfall that had become unusable due to the amount of debris in the system.
The traditional Pondless waterfall system has a basin at the bottom of the falls that is filled with AquaBlox. This basin holds the volume of water needed to run the system.
Seen below as we were removing the existing AquaBlox.
The picture below shows the amount of debris we pulled out of the basin.
The traditional Pondless system works fine if it is well maintained. However we prefer to install the Filtrific vanishing waterfall system. It allows us to easily clean out the basin if needed and is easy to maintain for our clients or maintenance crew.
