Mini Cascading Falls Kit | Small Cascade Waterfall Kit - Pondbuilder

This was my original tiny pond and waterfall project. I bought a small solar powered pump, and it was pleasant. trickling water, soothing to hear. I then took it all apart, installed exterior cabling, and bought a 2000lph pump. built the waterfall much higher also.

Small Waterfall w/ Pond Pump

Clear water tumbles freely down rocks, the myriad splashes singing a soothing song. It is not the powerful roar of a massive waterfall that creates this peaceful sensation, but a humble in-ground waterfall certainly does the trick. Installing a small DIY waterfall turns a regular backyard into a secret oasis. This is a simple, single-day project that requires choosing the perfect spot, digging a reservoir, setting up a pump, and building an obstruction for the water to fall over.

Small 20" DIY Cascade Waterfall

The Small Pump Canyon protects your waterfall pump. Max pump flow 7500gph. Does the county give guidelines as to the required pump’s size?
If not, grab a $25 pump and some tubing. Sit the pump on the bottom, and you have a few options. Make it as a fountain and let it spray up. Or attach a cute spitter and have it spray into the pond. Or make a little waterfall area by covering a small area with plastic, top with stones and situate the tubing so that the water returns to the pool. Even if it’s just a teeny falls, the goldfish will love it! They’ll swim under it, get pushed down, circle around a go again. It’s like a fish roller coaster!
An added bonus to any of the options is that you will be adding the sound of water.

If you have a small pond and waterfall and the in-pond filters are the most suitable, all you really have to be concerned with is the expected flow rate down the waterfall. Since most of these filters have a pump included with them, have a look at the flow rates for the pump that the filter is supplied with. Does the pump/filter flow rate correspond to the volume requirements that you calculated ? If you have more flow than you require, many of these filters also come with small fountain heads. If the waterfall will be very small, it may be possible to have both a fountain display and a small waterfall. If the flow is just adequate, you will likely have to replace the fountain heads with a short piece of tubing and operate only the waterfall. If the amount of flow is not adequate, you may want to get a separate pump to supplement the flow of water down the waterfall.
