    indoors or outdoors
    If it is outdoors where you live you are going to have some major freeze thaw issues to think about before hand

    Thanks PaperCutter I'll check it out.
    The water walls are for inside a restaurant, they are asking for several water walls for different areas through out the establishment.

    Think along the lines of a metal box above and below, covered in stone. Pump in the bottom, baffles in the top. They are really pretty simple to design.

    This might be a dork of an answer but why not just use wall fountains.
    I sell them here and people usually put them up against the house wall on the pool decks.
    If you dont have any connections up there PM and I can get some pics to you and ship them up.
    They are easy to install and maintain.

    it depends on what type of water wall you're looking for (natural,modern,etc.) but for a natural looking one maybe check out www.universalrocks.com

    Thank's but I'm looking for parts or ways to build ones with like glass panels or maybe glass blocks.
    Were the water spills evenly across the top and then the wall has a sheet of water flowing down one side.
    I would also need to have a basin in the base to hold the water and pump, I also would think I need a auto fill due to evaporation, and some kind of way to keep the water sanitized/filtered.
    This is going to be used in large restaurant and used to separate different areas.
    Thank's for any help in locating parts or suggestion's on ways to make this happen.

    it would be cool to pump the water back up thru a hole drilled in the glass wall, that way it would be nearly impossible to tell how the water was getting to the top....
