Custom Indoor Water Walls

Need indoor water feature ideas? Houzz and Pinterest are a popular destination for many interior designers, builders, homeowners, and architects looking for inspiration and ideas for their custom water wall project. Custom water walls range in price anywhere from $20,000-$100,000 or more per project depending on the amount of work that goes into the design and build. It is not recommended to compromise and go for the cheapest options as these features are prone to malfunction if improperly constructed.

Some basic things to keep in mind for a custom water wall include:
Autofiller
Distilled water
UV Filter
Adjustable water flow valve
Easy access to pumps
Submersible pumps are often not recommended
Separate mechanical room for pumps and electrical
Even flow water dispersion (We don’t recommend PVC pipe with holes due to calcium build up)
Investing in a good design and quality materials
Colors that match the rest of the surrounding decor/furniture/design/colors.

If you are looking for a commercial water feature it is recommended to get multiple quotes. Because every project is different, certain companies might be better suited for that particular project than another. Doing this gives you more leverage than you would have negotiating with a single provider (always good to do). Doing so may also help you discover the actual contractor performing the work so you can cut out the middle man.

Landscape Ponds, Water Features, And Supplies

Water features, Pond Pumps, And Accessories

In the architecture of landscape as well as garden design, water features are items that range from; ponds fountains, pools, streams, cascades and waterfalls, and streams. Prior to the 18th century most water features were typically powered by gravity. With pond planning and construction comes a good number of accessories that can enhance the aesthetics as well as functionality of the pond. An affordable and well reviewed pond pump is made by Jebao. Jebao manufactures pumps in China for waterfalls, ponds, and fountains. They range from simple to more complex construction. These are powerful, and can cost a fraction of what other leading name brands will cost. Cost is typically an issue for the average homeowner who doesn’t want to spend thousands of dollars every few years to replace a brand name pump. It is a misconception that water features can increase property value.

In some cases, a large pond may scare some potential home buyers away as they do not want to deal with the costs to maintain the pond.

Don't let this happen to your pool or pond! There are many things that could go wrong with a pump including damage from freezing in the winter, poor filtration, pump drying out due to low water levels and so on. The lower cost pump will do the same job without the same risk in cost. We recommend spending the difference in cost savings on a higher quality pond contractor to properly construct and service the pond.

Pond liners

preformed pond liner Pond liners come in a variety of forms. You can find premade fiberglass/plastic pond liners from most landscape garden supply stores. These are easy to install. Simply dig a hole, put the pond liner in making sure it is level, and backfill it in. Of course there are more steps involved but you get the idea. Another form is an impermeable geomembrane (EPDM) that is used for retention of water in the lining of garden ponds; it even includes the lining of lakes and artificial streams in gardens and parks. These pond liners require protection from sharp objects such as stones, tree roots, or anything else that could penetrate the liner causing a leak. If you have a leak in a larger pond, god bless your soul in trying to find it. For added protection a pond contractor may install several layers of sand, concrete or even fiber-matting among other materials. Pond liners are always manufactured in rolls and you can buy them in custom sizes. There are a few places in Surrey, BC that we know of that sells pond liner at exceptional prices (at least good enough to not bother with the hassle of buying from Amazon). While pond liner strips may be seamed or even welded together during construction, it is better to use one uniform piece.  Additional flexible types of pond liners like PVC and EPDM are able to have their panels pre-fabricated in the factory to fit the design and shape of the pond.

Jebao Pumps for water gardens, ponds, fountains, and waterfalls

Click HERE for reviews on Jebao Submersible Pumps

 

Jebao JGP series pond pumps are available both as submersible and non-submersible pumps (inline). They are a quiet workhorse providing overload-protection devices. These are specifically designed for use in garden ponds, fountains, terraced fountains and indoor fountains. The large pre-filters are easy to disassemble without requiring any tools. Simply engage the pressure tabs to remove, clean the filters, and snap back into place. Keep in mind that the built-in foam filter is NOT a substitute for a legitimate biofilter. WaterfallNow carries pond filters that will help to reduce algae and introduce good bacteria into the pond to maintain a sustainable ecosystem. This means your fish are happy and free from diseases! There are also additional uv filters that wll reduce algae and eliminate harmful pathogens. Overall the benefits are reduced frequency of pump cleaning, optimum water flow, and a clean pond. We recommend Jebao pumps for small to large ponds, waterfalls, or water features. The built-in wear-resistant ceramic bearings allow for continuous and trouble-free use. Jebao has been able to exhibit the best kind of pumps needed for ponds. One of the larger parts costs involved in pond construction is the pump. It is vital to buy the right kind of pond pump for an optimal flow rate. Want to add vertical elements such as a waterfall to the pond? We strongly suggest you give Jebao pumps a try and compare its performance with other brands. Note: Waterfalls are a great addition to ponds as they will add oxygen to the water which reduces the growth of algae and keeps fish happy. Don’t want a pond but want a water feature?  Why not add a pondless waterfall? You can enjoy the soothing sounds of a natural waterfall that is simple to maintain. Submersible and External Pond Pumps

  1. Submersible pumps are ‘submerged’ in the water of the pond itself.
  2. External pumps sit outside the pond. Pipes will connect the pump and the pond together.
  3. There are also other new models which can be used both externally and submerged.

Submersible pump pros or advantages

  • Simple to setup – Just connect the hoses/wiring and drop the pump in the water in the desired location.
  • Very quiet, cheap with a very high water turn rate. Available in almost all needed GPH gallon per hour. Add a valve as needed.
  • Suitable for all pond sizes.

Submersible Pumps cons or disadvantages

  • Clogs easily as do most pumps when a filter is not installed and must be cleaned regularly from debris.
  • Maintaining the pump is a somewhat tough task to do. Cheaper case construction but this does not affect performance.

External Pumps pros or advantages

  • These pumps are outside the pond, this means dry hands installation as well as maintenance.
  • Better for use in larger ponds.
  • Energy efficient

External Pumps cons or disadvantages

  • Relatively expensive to purchase, but has a lower power usage which makes up for the investment costs soon after buying.
  • Relatively harder to install there’s also the, fittings, piping and the pump also needs protection from direct rain.
  • The pump has to be hidden from the “landscape” and in the meantime it should be kept accessible for maintenance purposes.

Most people normally prefer submersible Jebao pond pumps as they are easy to install, reliable and fit well in smaller ponds.

Pond filters

Pond filters are essential for maintaining a clean, and healthy pond. One can choose from our wide range of selection of filters that are for sure of great qualities which suit the issues of ponds and water garden without depending on whether one has a small ornamental pond or an idyllic ram bling waterfall. WaterfallNow has biofilters and uv clarifiers available for customers pond projects.

Waterfalls Vancouver: Stream And Waterfall Location Planning

Building a Stream & Waterfall For Your Vancouver Custom Home

If you own a beautiful house with lush green backyard in Vancouver, adding a rippling and rock lined stream with one or multiple waterfalls can increase the pleasure factor of your yard. This is especially true in the summer months as many folks like to gather in their backyard. Waterfalls are undoubtedly one of the most serene and relaxing features created by nature. Owning one in your backyard can be just the thing for you to enjoy a natural and relaxing environment.

Streams and Waterfalls in Your Garden…

Stating the obvious, people living in Vancouver live in one of the most beautiful and nature oriented places in the world. Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, Lynn Canyon, Trout Lake, and Pacific Spirit Park are 5 of the most beautiful parks in Vancouver but you can’t always make time to go hiking, or stop by a tranquil location after a day’s hard work. Creating a small or large-scale replica of a stream with waterfalls in your garden can bring nature closer to you. In order to maintain good water clarity and reduce maintenance, you can use gravel and stone filters coupled with a heavy duty pump. And the best part is you can undertake and complete the project in two weekends. Within days you will see a natural ecosystem start to form attracting wildlife such as birds that will bathe in the pond.

How to Decide On A Location…

It is an exciting thought to have your very own waterfall, but before anything else you need to decide on a location. There is no point putting in all the hard work and effort, not to mention money, if you can’t enjoy it when you want. You should choose the location by visualizing it. Imagine the best spot where you would like to sit and enjoy the waterfall, maybe near the deck or patio. You can choose a spot near your bedroom to enjoy the sound of water at night and in the morning. In any case, the location of the stream and waterfall(s) should be the one most enjoyable for you.

Preference of location, however, is not the only consideration in planning and executing the project. The following factors should also be considered when selecting the location.

  • If the soil is soft, excavate the site and if it is hard, build the stream above ground with a stone base. The type of work you want to undertake can influence your location selection.
  • Little slope, 2in drop per 10ft of stream, is enough for the flow. If you want faster moving water or taller waterfalls, create a steeper grade. Proper streams cannot be built on flat ground.
  • Decide on the stream size to determine the water capacity in the lower basin and upper pool when pump is off. The location should have enough space and ability to accommodate the capacity you desire.
  • In order to enjoy a babbling brook sound, set the waterfalls height between two to four inches. In case you want more sound, increase the height of the waterfall drop.
  • You should search for stones to be used in the project under rock, sand & gravel or quarries online or in the yellow pages. You can choose colorful accent boulders and flat stones for the waterfalls. You can choose the different rocks and materials according to prices and types available. Choice of stone is very important in the functionality of the project. If you want to cut costs in half you can opt for an artificial rock waterfall. There are residential and commercial waterfall contractors in Vancouver that specialize in that area and they can custom create virtually any kind of waterfall you desire.

waterfalls vancouver

After Selecting the Location…

Once you have clarified and decided on the aforementioned factors, you can map out the design and mark it, so that you can start digging. It is recommended only to start the work when all the material have arrived. Detailed instructions are available online, in magazines, through videos (YouTube) and catalogs. Alternatively, you can hire a professional to help you complete the project successfully. It is usually better to involve the professional once you have decided upon the location. One of the reasons why we recommend hiring a professional is because they will install the plumbing correctly (including the filtration systems) which will allow the water feature to run continuously without constant maintenance issues.

Don’t forget the lighting! You can find good pond and waterfall lighting from your local garden center, online at Amazon.com or speak with your waterfall contractor who has a supplier or distributor relations with suppliers.

Luxury Pool Water Features: Icing On The Cake

Today we will take a look at a few luxury pool water features commonly used in many backyard design projects. Keep in mind that many luxury pool contractors rates will typically range between $100,000 and $500,000.
The biggest economic crisis in modern history saw many great pool contractors throughout North America moving onto other things. Sadly, this opened the door for many inexperienced builders to build so-called luxury pools.
The amount of fine attention to detail that goes into building a custom pool to a high standard may go unnoticed to the average person but are easily detected by experienced pool builders.
As always, you want to ensure that you are hiring someone that is capable of carrying out a project. Don’t just take the contractors word for it. If possible, check their references. While it isn’t a foolproof way of avoiding problems later on, it does eliminate a lot of doubts.

Custom Rock Waterfalls

High quality pools deserve quality water features. A common water feature for nature infused backyards is a custom rock waterfall. These are a staple in amusement parks around the world and for good reason. They look great, produce soothing sounds, and can transform a cold and boring yard into a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Rock water features are made in a variety of different ways.

1. Artificial GFRC Panels Tied To An Internal Steel Frame

One method utilizes an internal bracing system with concrete GFRC panels tied on making the inside hollow. A concrete mud is used to seal the joints. One company that comes to mind is Neptune Panels which is a distributor in the USA. While strong, the concrete/fiber panels will still split down the middle if struck hard enough with a hammer. Rock molds for this method are often flat surfaced making this the easiest method to scale for fast projects.

2. Shotcrete And Hand-Carved Artificial Rock
Another method of creating rock waterfalls for pools is through the use of concrete forming and shotcrete. This method often costs the most simply due to the amount of preparation, labourers, and materials used not to mention the ongoing maintenance to repair cracks, chips, and leaks commonly caused during the winter. This is the most common method of creating artificial rock water features simply because concrete pool contractors already deal with shotcrete. It does have the potential to look very nice in the hands of expert artisans.
Luxury Pool Water Features
3. Fiberglass Rock Panels
One method of creating a lightweight, cost-effective, and easily customizable custom rock waterfall or fountain is by using a blend of fiberglass and natural materials. This method is the least common for creating rock water features. WaterfallNow adopted this method simply because nobody else was doing it. The thickness can be adjusted depending on the application.
While similar to the GFRC panel method, this method is different due to the rock texture which is a clone of the original rock face capturing deep grooves, and edges of real cliffsides. Attempting to recreate these patterns carved out of concrete would produce less than appealing results.
Although it requires much more cutting, bending, shaping, and many hours of practice to get right, we find that it has the most potential. The cost can be 20-50% less than the other methods.
This gives you two options. Firstly you can expect a cost of 20-50% less than what you would normally pay. Secondly, you can spend the same amount yet get much more bang for your buck. An example would be the option to choose additional lighting, spillways, or a larger sized rock.

Does your backyard look more like a jungle than a townhouse complex? If so, a custom rock waterfall just might be your next big project. The sooner you start planning, the sooner you can enjoy spending time in your private oasis.

Laminar Water Jet Fountain

Laminar water jets are a commonly used water feature for modern pool designs. Some models can be programmed to change colors and turn on and off at different intervals creating a mini water show.

While these images do not properly show their effects, when a laminar water jet with LED lighting penetrates the pool surface, it also lights up the pool area with the same color of LED light used. A blue LED laminar jet would light up the pool surface and cast a blue glow. These water features can be used in conjunction with custom rock waterfalls or for clean modern pool designs as shown in the previous image above.

Sheer Descent Waterfall Spillways and Weirs

There are several types of spillways that go well with luxury pools

Acrylic Waterfall Spillway                                                              Stainless Steel Waterfall Weir

Natural slate stone pieces combined with natural rock are sometimes used as well

The more common black plastic waterfall pond kits are not common with luxury backyard pool designs.

There are hundreds of different designs and even infinite possibilities if you contract a custom stainless steel fabricator.

One of the most important things to include is a high quality LED light strip. Ask any landscape designer what is the one easiest thing you can do to drastically improve the look and feel of a yard and they might mention lighting. At least from our own personal experience, proper lighting (underwater lights even) can make the biggest difference.

The following image is an example of what a waterfall sheer might look like. It does not appear to have any LED lighting installed near the outlet however you can see the use of an anti-splash mat where the rocks hit the base.

The flow of this water feature begins at the top where 3 rock column bubblers are placed side by side. The water makes its way down and is recirculated back up to the top by the use of a pump. More rocks and lighting fixtures are expected to be added to the pond areas. Because WaterfallNow’s rocks are so versatile, should the client ever desire changes, we can literally arrive and make any necessary changes in a day. These don’t have to be permanent fixtures. If you want to add onto the existing rock a little more each year simply give WaterfallNow a call and they will do just that. Want to try out a different color? Simply request a touch up paint job.

Custom pool designers can create infinity pools, perimeter overflows, tropical pools, salt-water pools, contemporary designs, freeform designs, custom spas, grottos, and much more. In many cases, custom pool designers either work alongside a loyal subcontractor who specializes in custom waterfalls but more often will use their own inhouse crew. Some will offer outdoor living designs such as outdoor kitchens, fire pits, landscaping, and more. Not matter who you are dealing with, even the best companies will not be able to carry out a proper job with an improper bid.

Luxury pools, ponds, waterfalls, and landscaping projects are all reliant on the experience, and craftsmanship of the set of contractors employed for the specific task. No amount of a company’s reputation will ever change that fact. The key to success is in finding the company which has dedicated and loyal contractors working with the same company to stand behind their work. This is where you will see the best quality of work. Ideally everybody should be on the same page from when the permits are approved to when you are swimming in your pool.
