Atlantic Water Gardens BF1250 Filterfalls

The best of both worlds. These combo skimmer/waterfall units keep debris off the surface of your pond before it sinks and becomes a big cleaning job. Skimmers come equipped with Super Flow weir doors, debris net and oversized brush panels that reduce maintenance. Beyond creating the visual and aural qualities of a waterfall, the added WaterFalls units provide biological water filtration and aeration. Pond water enters the skimmer, is pumped to the waterfall and returns to the pond with a flair: clean and filtered.

Some General Rules for Waterfalls: A 1/2” deep water flow at the weir (the part the water falls off of ) requires 100 gallons per hour (gph) per inch of width. Most residential disappearing waterfalls are twice that.

To determine pump flow at the falls: Head pressure may be calculated using 1 foot of pressure for each foot of height above water level and 1 foot of pressure for each 10 feet of tubing after the €first 10 feet.
