Water Features

I do not post much over here but I do the excavation for another company that does some pretty nice water features. I really enjoy working on them and I have spend several hours looking at everyones work here really enjoyed the pics. Here is a Waterfall that I am helping on. Not big but still nice. Still have tee of pump lines and add a few more falls, but heck it was Friday afternoon and wanted too see some water. About 20000 gph total .

There was an existing water feature and it had a good pump so re used it and added another 13k. The company is big on sound hence alot of water flow. Did one last year that took about 3 months. The liner was 150 ft long, had about 80k GPH of pumps.

Nice, though it looks like you cut back on the flow.

The flow rate now seems more proportionate to the size of the feature.
