    It's a rainy day, and i have nothing to do, so i'll start a water feature thread. I'll start w/ my first ever install. This pondless is 5 yrs old, and still runs everyday w/ the original pump. I strictly use Auqascape products everytime w/out any problems. Mostly all of my water feature are built using moss rock. The last pic was taken about 2yrs ago. Enjoy.

    Thanks sicnj, making it look natural is the hardest part. I hand pick a lot of my rock from different sources, so i know what pieces i need (especially the spill stones). I kinda put the waterfall together in my head as i pick through piles of rock.

    If you're talking about the 1st set of pics. I didn't, that is the original pool patio (about 18yrs old). The newer pool patio pics were done by me (Unilock Brussells, Cambridge tumbled)

    yeah i was talking about the first pics, sorry should of made that clear. how did you do your base under the uni-lock??? i have another pool we are doing in the spring, and we have about 2000 feet of pavers to do around it. i was going to do like we do in the past and pour a concrete reinforced pad, 1" of sand, then pavers. just getting more input.

    I've done the reinforced concrete before with new and old pools, but by the customer's request. I personally like installing on RCA (3/4 blend). If the base is done right it shouldn't settle. 9 inches of blend is under the unilock patio, and 3/4 inch sand.
