Ultimate Pondless Waterfall and Stream


The pondless waterfall and stream is similar to a pondless waterfall, but with the addition of a stream. The pondless waterfall and stream combines a waterfall sound with a babbling brook sound. The overall sound is very pleasing and relaxing. Have the waterfalls set back from your seating area with the stream meandering next to your seating area. This will give you an unbelievable “stereo” sound.

Easy to Clean!

Each and every RWG (Russell WaterGardens) pondless waterfall system comes with a HydroSieve™ pre-filter that captures debris. No longer is rock and gravel used as a pre-filter.

An easy to clean pondless waterfall and stream keeps the algae away. Unlike conventional pondless waterfall kits that utilize rock and gravel as the pre-filter, our Ultimate pondless kits use a HydroSieve™ for pre-filtering.

    Hard to clean conventional pondless waterfall Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives




    Conventional pondless waterfall and stream kits require a rock and gravel basin to store water and house the pump. Not only are conventional pondless waterfall kits difficult to clean, they offer no other design options. The rock and gravel basin is ALWAYS at the base. You have no choice where to put it.

    Easy to Clean HydroSieve pre-filter with the Ultimate pondless waterfall system
    Combination HydroSieve and HydroChamber make for easy to clean pondless waterfalls



    The HydroChamber™ pairs with the HydroSieve™-PF pondless pre-filter for ease of cleaning. All conventional pondless waterfall and streams use river rock as the pre-filter to the aqua blocks and slotted pump vault. The waterfall forces debris deep down into the river rock.


    The Questions You Need to Ask
    BEFORE Installing a Conventional Rock Filled
    Pondless Waterfall and Stream Basin:




    1. How do I clean the conventional pondless waterfall and stream basin rock?


    2. What happens if I don’t clean it?



    Gravel Basin Pondless Waterfalls Can Only be Cleaned by Hand!
    Conventional Pondless Waterfalls Can only be cleaned by hand!
    Pondless Waterfalls Catch Cottonwood Seeds How will you remove this from conventional pondless waterfalls?




    The answer to the first question is: By Hand!



    The only way to remove leaves, tree needles, mulch, grass clippings, flower blossoms, windblown seeds such as cottonwood and dandelions, bird poop, dead insects, dead worms, bird feathers, and other debris from a conventional pondless waterfall and stream basin is … by hand!







    Conventional Pondless Waterfalls Grow algae like crazy!
    Conventional Pondless Waterfall Gravel Basin Traps debris that feeds algae


    The answer to the second question is: Algae, and lots of it!



    Debris decaying down inside the rock of a conventional pondless waterfall and stream basin smells terrible and grows algae. Algae grows on waterfall rocks, rocks and gravel within a streambed, and the basin rock itself. To control the algae, you’ll have to apply large amounts of expensive algaecides regularly. This drastically adds to the cost of ownership of this type of pondless waterfall.




    Conventional Pondless Waterfall and Stream “Basin-Ectomy”


    Clogged Pondless Waterfall Basin Requires dismantling for cleaning
    Removing Slotted Pump Vault and Aqua Blocks from a clogged pondless waterfall basin



    Over time, not even algaecides can solve the problem. The river rock pre-filter required by all conventional pondless waterfalls and stream – no matter what they’re called – Just a Falls, Pond Free, No Pond, Zero Pond – they ALLbecome clogged over time. When the river rock is clogged, water flow to the pump becomes restricted. Eventually the pump will pump water out faster than it can return – causing the pump run dry and burn out. The cost of repeatedly replacing a pump significantly increases the cost of ownership of the typical “just a fall” pondless waterfall.





    Basin-Ectomy Removing water matrix blocks
    Basin-Ectomy Remove the conventional pondless waterfall basin liner




    The only remedy to this problem is the complete dismantling of the conventional river rock pondless waterfall and stream basin. This is known as a “Basin-Ectomy”. A Basin-Ectomy is the complete dismantling and removal of the clogged river rock, aqua blocks, slotted pump vault, basin liner, and basin underlayment and replacing all of those items with a HydroSieve™-PF pre-filter and a HydroChamber™ All-in-One Pondless Pump Chamber Water Storage Tank.






    The Problem with Conventional Pondless Waterfall and Stream Basins

    Say NO to Conventional Pondless Waterfalls Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives
    No design options with conventional pondless waterfalls Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives
    Impossible to Clean Conventional Pondless Waterfall Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives


    All conventional pondless waterfall basins require the pump vault and water storage basin to be at the foot of the pondless waterfall and stream.

    They offer no creative pondless waterfall design options. You have no choice with your pondless waterfall and stream design.

    The pump vault and water storage basin must always be connected to the base of your pondless waterfall and stream.




    No matter the pondless waterfall and stream kit brand: Aquascape, Easy Pro, Savio, Atlantic, Pond Builder, American Pond, Little Giant, Proline, Danner, and others …. they ALL utilized conventional gravel basins. The gravel basins are ALWAYS at the base of the waterfalls. With each of those brands, they provide you with NO DESIGN ALTERNATIVES.


    Conventional Pondless Waterfall and Stream Basins Are Difficult to Clean


    Hard to clean conventional pondless waterfall Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives
    Conventional Pondless Waterfalls are Hard to Clean Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives
    Conventional Pondless Waterfall is Difficult to Clean Difficult to Clean with No Design Alternatives


    Conventional pondless waterfall and stream gravel basins are difficult, if not impossible clean. Water is a magnet for wind blown debris.

    You may not have any trees, plants, flowers, lawn, or any type of landscaping whatsoever near your pondless waterfall. IT WILL STILL CATCH WIND BLOWN DEBRIS!

    The wind will blow tree needles, cottonwood seeds, blossoms, leaves, dust, mulch, and more into your pondless waterfall.

    Conventional pondless waterfall and stream rock and gravel basin will capture all that debris. The force of the waterfalls will drive down deep into the rocks. That debris will decay and feed algae. Over time it will eventually clog. This will happen with all brands of conventional pondless waterfalls.

    Only RWG Ultimate pondless waterfall and stream systems let you easily remove this debris before it can feed algae.



    Conventional Pondless Waterfall and Stream Basins Require Large Excavations


    Typical Pondless Basin consist of a large excavation  that is then filled with underlayment, liner, pump vault, matrix blocks, and rock


    Why would anyone want to dig a huge hole in the ground only to fill it back up with underlayment, liner, multiple pump vaults, water storage aqua blocks, and tons of rock ? The cost of the rock, gravel, pump vaults, aqua blocks …. AND the labor to dig the huge hole and to place all these things in it is much higher than HydroChamber™ All-in-One Pondless Pump Chamber Water Storage Tanks.

    The HydroChamber™ is designed to house up to two pumps AND two aqua blocks worth of water storage in one single unit. It is also a direct burial tank so underlayment, liner, and rock is NOT required. Unlike the slotted pump vaults shown in this photo at the base of the water feature, the HydroChamber™ can be installed in a remote location away from the water feature.


    Smaller, Faster, Pondless Basin Excavation Easier. less labor, and lower cost



    With the combined pump vault and water storage tank configuration of the HydroChamber™, the pondless waterfall and stream basin can be significantly smaller than conventional pondless waterfall water storage basins. A smaller pondless and stream basin requires less labor, saving you installation time and money.



    HydroChamber All-in-One pump chamber water storage tank is a better value than typical pondless waterfall basins


    With the combined pump vault and water storage tank configuration of the HydroChamber™, the pondless waterfall and stream basin can be significantly smaller than conventional pondless waterfall water storage basins.

    Conventional pondless waterfall and stream basins consist of a slotted pump vault, water matrix blocks, liner, underlayment, rock, and gravel. The HydroSieve and HydroChamber replace all that in a smaller space. A smaller pondless basin requires less labor, saving you installation time and money.
