1) Felt Underlayment

8 oz felt fabric that goes under the liner to help protect from rocks and roots.

2) Pond Liner

45 mil EPDM liner. Thick and durable.

3) Pump Vault

The pump vault provides easy access to the pump, union, and ball valve.

4) Fountain Pump

The height of the rock will dictate the flow necessary for your desired effect. Plan for 1,200 – 1,800 GPH per rock.

5) Union/Quick Disconnect

This free-spinning fitting allows you to disconnect the pump after all of the glued fittings have been installed.

6) Ball Valve

Controls the flow through the fountain. Allows you to fine-tune the sound.

7) Void Filler

Void filler basins consist of 10% basin and 90% water. Gravel fills consist of 70% rock and only 30% water.

8) Tubing

PVC Flex tubing. Pump flow will determine what size tubing to use.

9) Waterfalls Foam

Seals the tubing into the hole at the bottom of the bubbling rock.
