    After 2 months of great anticipation we finally got the pumps running on the falls. Here are a few differant angles. I installed 2 6000 gph Atlantic W.G. pumps. These pics are taken with just one pump running.

    Very nice job breaking up the linear flow of that feature with the large mossy boulder in the middle forcing the flow out of line. Once again, excellent boulder placement and selection. I especially like how you arranged the mossy center boulder and tied it into the ones adjacent to it. Looks like some I have seen out in the woods. Very well done my friend.

    Looks Great. The time you spent on rock placement shows.

    Thanks a lot for the compliments guys. I really enjoy building these. Now if I could sell more than 3 or 4 per year.

    The feature came out great. I'm sure with 2 pumps running that thing would be gushing. I was surprised to hear about the higher amperage than previously indicated by Atlantic. Did you put a ball valve in line in case you want to lower the flow and the amperage?

    LOL! That's no joke! I love building ponds and waterfalls, but pavers are what pay my bills.
