The garden waterfall not only creates a visually pleasing focal point, it creates the pleasant sounds of moving water – a calming effect for almost anyone. However, a garden waterfall does more than just that. You can have an algae-free water surface without a waterfall, pump or filter, but it's much harder to create the ideal water environment without these things. When a submersible pump pulls water out from the bottom of a basin, pool,or pond and releases it as a waterfall, it provides a natural, continuous cycle that maintains your water feature.
