Spillways-12″ and 22″ wide

The wide 12” spillway opening handles flow rates up to 4,000 GPH/ 15,141 LPH.

The Aquascape Waterfall Spillway  make it easy to create a waterfall or stream, providing smooth, consistent, leak-free water flow. As the incoming water rushes in, the water is diffused by strategically positioned internal barriers to create a smooth flow of water. Its durable design allows boulders, gravel, soil, or other creative landscape material to be set directly on top, making it easy to camouflage into the surrounding landscape. The spillway is extremely versatile and can be used in a wide variety of water feature applications where more expensive biological filters are not necessary, including Pondless® Waterfalls. The spillway can also be installed as an additional waterfall or stream onto a new or existing pond. Multiple spillways can be used to design larger, more creative configurations. You can also build the spillway into hardscape walls for a formal waterfall design. Installation is quick and easy, and Aquascape Waterfall Spillways come complete with fittings (2” PVC slip and 1.5” barbed) for trouble-free setup. The Waterfall Spillway is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring year after year of reliable use.

 

Waterfall Foam

This black polyurethane waterfall foam is ideal for filling joints and gaps between rocks and boulders maximizing the amount of water cascading over the waterfall and rushing down the stream. It sets within an hour and can be readily hidden by sprinkling pea gravel or sand over the foam while it is still slightly damp. It has some flexibility which accomodates the shifting of the rocks and ground structure over the winter.

Comes in a DIY can, or in the “Professional” size can which requires the use of a Foam Gun applicator.

Silicone

Used for sealing connections where liner attaches to the BioFalls® Filter snout and the skimmer faceplate.

Micro Falls Rock Tray

Especially designed for the Signature Series Microfalls, this tray holds rocks, plants and gravel, helping to naturalize the unit.

Matala Filtration Media

A good biofilter needs a lot of surface area with open spaces between for good aerated water flow. A high surface area is useless if the passageways are so small that water flow cannot penetrate.This light-weight versatile product is made of curly, fibre thermo-polypropylene compounds, and is non-toxic to the environment. It is easy to cut and fits in any application. Available in 4 densities:

  • MATALA – BLACK Filter grid, low density, best suited for use in skimmers
  • MATALA – GREEN Filter Mat, Medium Density
  • MATALA – BLUE Filter Mat, High Density
  • MATALA – GREY Filter Mat, Super High Density
  • Proper Use of Matala
