AquaFlo Acrylic Spillways

Projecting or Cascading Waterwall

Aussie's Observations about AquaFlo Acrylic Spillways

Rating:
Budget • Good • Better • Best • Superior

Suitable for:

Suitable for almost any situation requring a spillway or waterwall. 125mm lip is perfect for walls the width of 1 brick.

What we liked:

Aquaflo spillways are our most flexible spillway. They are suitable for pools or ponds, can be used as projecting or cascading sheet and are available with or without lights. You can install an Aquaflo spillways in almost any situation.

Less than ideal:

When connected to a pool pump a non-return (one way) valve is required to be fitted to the pipe coming from the pump in order to keep water in the pipe at all times. The inital rush of water from a powerful pool pump runs the risk of cracking your spillway box if the line is not full of water.

Choosing your pump


PUMPS: How to choose : A projecting sheet spillway requires a flow of at least 700 Litres per hour for every 100 mm of spillway width. While a sheet descent sheet spillway requires a flow of at least 350 Litres per hour for every 100 mm of spillway width. This flow rate is measured at the spillway, therefore in choosing the pump, the distance* between the surface of the water and the spillway is a factor that only you will know.  We have therefore made a number of suggestions below based on about 1.0m mounting, covering a variety of price points. The (list starts with the best quality and works right).  *The higher the water is being pumped, the larger the pump must be, also on 2 and 3 inlet spillways the flow must be higher because of the tee that is required in the plumbing.
