    Got ya, thank you. I would love to do a waterfall into a pool. Can't wait for the pictures of your current pool/fall job.

    you can tee off the suction line to add an additional pump for the water feature. it takes (2) check valves, 1 above the tee for the pool pump and 1above the tee for the water feature, i suggest using www.waterwaysplastics.com for the check valve suppliers as you can disassemble the valves for cleaning.

    these keep the water from being siphoned from one pump to the other, you won't lose prime this way either.

    this is possible since the pool filter should be set to run at night, i usually start mine at midnight.
