    Here is a picture of a Pondless Column water feature I donated and installed at the Hoquiam, Washington Farmers Market, it consists of a 6'3" x 28" column, 4'4" x 28" column and a 2'6" x 28" column.

    This pondless column water feature took about 3 hrs to install with 2 guys and no heavy machines.

    That looks like man made stone columns. Am I right? There is no way you could have set a columnar basalt stone that large without a machine so it must be made of something else.

    Or maybe he doesn't want some jerk stealing his pics, and he has posted on other treads.

    It kind of looks like wax running down the sides rather than water. But is could just be the water is dirty from the rock and the still pic makes it look like cooled wax.

    Thank you poolboy

    Yes, they are hand crafted fiber reinforced hollow concrete columns, and the quality and craftsmanship are guaranteed against most weather conditions.

    A 6' x 28" column only weighs about 500-600 lbs compare that to natural stone.
    Also with these you do not need a concrete footing like with natural stone.

    They also have a flat bottom so you don't have to try and prop it up like natural stone.

    Me and one other guy can install these in as little as a couple of hours.

    I've seen one in my life in use - excluding the suppliers of course. Always wonder where they get marketed...to what type of individual? Serious here ... no bs'ing now boys :nono:
