How A Pondless Water Feature Works

There Is No Pond Basin

Instead of water filling up a pond, the water from a waterfall or stream empties into gravel. The water level can actually come a few inches above the gravel if desired.

The Gravel Acts As Another Filter

Since the water has to pass through the gravel to get to the recirculation pond pump, it helps to filter out larger debris.

Pondless water features can give you less to worry about while still enjoying a full water feature. They are great for relaxing alone or for gathering around with loved ones.

They’re Great For Kids & Pets

Ponds usually have about 2′ of water while pondless water features can have less than 1″. This makes them very safe.

They’re Perfect For Small Spaces
