Questions to ask when you’re in the market to buy an indoor water feature
How is the water distributed over the face of the waterfall?
Some companies use spray bars which is typically a piece of pipe with holes drilled in it. These types of systems don’t allow water to be evenly distributed over the face, and as the holes of the spray bar get clogged, it may cause water to spray away from the feature and onto the floor. What should be used is a trough (also known as a "weir") which is an upper bowl that fills up and overflows over the face evenly as one sheet of water.
Is the water feature itself a one piece construction or do you have to put it together multiple pieces when it’s delivered to your door?
Pondering Waters water only carries one-piece constructed water features. The only things that may need to be put together are items such as pumps, lights, and uv lights.
What is the thickness of the material used for the construction of the water feature?
What you should be looking for is 304, 24 gauge for stainless steel and 20 ounce for copper.
Do they test every unit for at least 24 hours before they’re shipped, or is it just pulled off a shelf and shipped to your door?
All the water features we sell and install are thoroughly tested before shipment.
What kind of warranty will I get?
Warranty period should typically be 1 to 25 years on the unit depending on manufacturer, and 1 to 3 years on the pumps.
Most importantly, is the water feature made in the USA?
All the water features we sell and install are proudly made in the United States!
