    Guys, I know this is an impossible question to answer, but I'll ask anyways.

    Haven't built many pondless water falls, but I had a potential customer that had this pic of what he wanted. I ran some numbers, and scared him off. But kinda ref. the pic. although the "pond" part is in the shadows and can't be seen.
    Really not that all fired difficult, except according to my calculations, it would take a good size pump to make the falls look natural.

    anyway, just curious, if some of you experts have a ball park price on something like this?
    Not a big deal, I told him my price and he was shocked, I am wondering if I'm unrealistic, or they are.

    Probably why I don't get too many!!
    But I was at $7200 not including rock - so way out of line I guess.
    Couldn't find any rock he liked anyway, it was something he seen in Utah, and Nebraska doesn't have rock around that looks like that, at least that I could find.
    I had $4k just in materials for that size.

    Ok so what does this guy wanna accomplish? Does he just want SOUND?

    If so, why not steer him towards Aquabella, and you install it?
