Aussie's observations

Suitable for: Any wall, three lip extension options to suit thick or thin walls
What we liked: 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. It is also the only spillway that can be used in either a pond or pool because of it's design.
For pond use: The 40 mm inlets are best suited to pools or spas rather than ponds, however, with adaptors the inlets can be changed to suit pond style hose.
If used as a sheet descent: This spillway performs best as a projecting sheet (sheer), but does a good job as sheet descent.

Lip extensions
Lip extension is measured from the vertical edge of box to the tip of the lip (point where the water exits)

Multi function - Sheer descent* or Sheet descent**
*What is a sheer descent spillway (projecting sheet) A 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/pool/spa. These units have been designed with an multi chamber internal baffle system for a spectacular flow over the spillway.

** What is a projecting sheet (sheet descent) spillway? A 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.


Tip 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 100 mm. 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
