Add a Waterfall Project
Easy upgrade: add a waterfall to your pond. This weekend project is sure to give your backyard pond a whole new vibe. Build a DIY waterfall with smartpond®.
Clear and level the area at the edge of the pond where you would like to add your waterfall. Tamp down the dirt.
Place large blocks or stones to elevate where the spillway will sit. Use a level to determine the best placement.
TIP: The height of your waterfall is determined by your pump size. Check out our Waterfalls 101 Selecting Waterfall Products page for more info.
Place the spillway on the support stone. Adjust placement as needed for proper height and to ensure your flow is level.
Pump and Filter Box Assembly
Attach the included adapter to the pump. Place the pump in the filter box with the bio-balls.
2. Filter Pads
Place the blue (fine) filter pad over the adapter. Place the black (coarse) filter pad on top.
Thread the tubing through the hole in the lid. If using a hose clamp, add it to the end of tubing after threading.
Connect the tubing to the pump adapter. Slide the hose clamp down to where the tubing connects to the adapter and tighten.
Secure the pump's power cord.
Snap the lid on all the way to close the filter box.
