Multi function spillway* Stainless Steel Water Feature
Use as a Projecting sheet** or a Sheet descent ***

For natural ponds only (not recommended for pools)

One spillway box ... two functions depending on the pump size Gardens and ponds can come alive with these great spillways. They are able to be used with either a garden pond or as a stand alone water feature. Plenty are used to cascade down over stone book leafs or project out and add extra oxygen to the pond below..
All spillways which are installed into bricked type walls must have a lintel to support the weight above the spillways.

  Cascading down the wall.
**Cascading - Sheet descent,
 softly down the wall

         Stainless steel water feature

 Projecting away from the wall
*** Projecting sheet also known as Sheer descent,
projects to a maximum off 75mm

Court yard water spillway
This is the "Deluxe spillway" in action, not the Multi-function. However, it gives an idea of the effect. But does not project as far, only about75mm from the wall.

Aussie's observations

Suitable for: Any wall mounted situation where a 40mm lip extension is suitable.
What we liked: The stainless work is first class, very well priced for the excellent quality. Fantastic value for money. Complete flexibility, can be used as a sheet descent** or a sheer descent*** spillway just by using a different pump, or by reducing the flow the effect can be changed.
Less than ideal: Because they are designed to function as both projecting sheet (sheer descent) & sheet descent spillways, they lack the performance of the purpose designed units such as the Deluxe types Cascading Sheet descent   Projecting Sheer descent

Confused about selecting the right spillway? Use our online help

Advantages of multi use spillways:
1) If you are not sure how aggressive you want the water flow, purchase the larger pump and by adjusting flow you can experiment.
2) During the day or while having a party, set the pump for projecting sheet, then after dark turn back the flow for a soft and gentle water sound for complete relaxation.

Disadvantages: They do not do either job as well as a purpose designed spillway such as Cascading Sheet descent Projecting Sheer descent spillways.

**What is a Cascading sheet descent spillway? A stainless steel box with a delivery spout is mounted in a wall, water flows softly from the spillway and runs down the wall face into the pond or pool. Sheet descent units have been designed with a multi chamber internal baffle system to promote even flow over the spillway.

***What is a projecting sheer descent spillway? (also known as sheer descent water feature) stainless steel box with a delivery spout is mounted in a wall, a large volume of water passing through this special unit producing a solid sheet of water that projects away from the wall. The sheet of water does not touch the wall, but goes directly into the pond.

Hint 1:If being used as a projecting sheet effect, never mount higher that 900mm above the water. The further the water drops, the narrower it becomes due to surface tension. The drop in the photo's above is .9m to give you an idea. Another way to understand this tapering effect is that for every 50cm of drop, the width of the sheet of water narrows by about 10 cm.  After about 90cm of drop the sheet starts to break up.

Hint 2: Any elbows or tees in the system will reduce flow.  On the 2 inlet model spillways, it may be desirable to use two pumps, this will avoid the need for a tee.

Hint 3: Glass .. When water is run down glass, to improve water flow and maintain it's full width you should angle the wall between 2 to 5 degrees

Hint 4: Acrylic .. When water is run down Acrylic, to improve water flow and maintain it's full width you should angle the wall between 5 to 7 degrees

Hint 5: How to neatly get the electrical cable from the pump and the water tube out of the pond cleanly and allow for service. Click here
