Did you know the air around a waterfall has a higher level of negative ions that can increase your well-being? It's true! Ions are molecules that have gained or lost an electrical charge and are created in nature by a variety of forces; one of which is moving water.

How it Works


Water held within the reservoir or void space below a decorative layer of gravel flows from a submersible water pump contained within a protective waterfall vault; the waterfall vault protects the pump from being clogged and reduces pump maintenance.

The water is pumped to a waterfall spillway that creates the start of a beautiful waterfall.

The water then flows over the rock that creates the waterfall and the process is restarted.
