Pump & Flow Requirement
- A pump is essential to a water feature, so it's necessary to choose one that will deliver the optimum flow rate for your water feature. Select a pump that can move more water than what your water feature's basic operation requires, as this gives you the freedom to make adjustments to your water feature down the track.
Water Feature Filters
- It's important that you install a good filter in the plumbing line to your water features, stopping any debris from disrupting the flow of the water.
Water Feature Structural Housing
- Depending on your chosen water feature, you may need to install a structure to house it. Water feature housings come in a wide variety of types and sizes, including retaining walls, piers and artificial rocks.
- The amount of water flow that is required to achieve the effect you desire will impact the position of the water feature. The way the water feature is plumbed will also have a significant impact on the water flow and therefore the performance of your water feature. Choose a location that's away from wind and sun, reducing water evaporation. Also avoid any underground cables and lines that may be running under your yard.
Council Regulations for Water Features
- Before installing your water feature we recommend that you contact your local council to ensure that it complies with any regulations or guidelines.
Custom Designed Water Features
- Standard Zodiac water features come in a range of lengths from 300mm to 2440mm. Water features outside this size can also be custom made to fit almost any length or radius.
- Zodiac water features can also be installed at varying heights, with the recommended maximum height at 1.2 metres above water level.
Water Feature Maintenance
- Water features require very little maintenance, apart from occasionally cleaning the filter and topping up the water.
