    thanks Tom. appreciate the comments.

    I still have to mulch it and put in my custom lighting too. I will be sure to put up some more pictures when that gets done (hopefully next week)

    Nice work, does the water flow? If so how do you get it "flowing". Would like to see a pic when you get the lights installed.

    the water is defintely flowing, right around 3200GPH i believe. There is an underground basin at the bottom of the falls (viewable in After #1). There is a vault with a submersible pump that pushes water back up 2" pvc pipe to the spillway at the top. and repeat that process all day long.

    We designed this to be able to shutdown at night and contain all the water and then start up again in the morning on a timer. Most pondless' basins aren't big enough to contain all the water (especially on 35' streams). When those systems shutdown they overflow the basin at the bottom and you must add-water to re-start them so the pump doesn't burn out.

    Looks really good Matt. Is this your first pondless waterfall?
    Add some little 10 watt waterfall lights and bamm its like a whole new world around your waterfall at night:)
    How long did it take you to build?

    Again nice work!

    That is a wonderful addition and you did a great job making it all blend in as one. So many people do too much and it ends up detracting, rather than adding. Excellent size, excellent feel, subtle class.....
    On another note, you know, you could have made it about 50 foot longer and 20' wider and you could have docked your boat right by the front door... :)
