How often will you need to refill your water feature?

Below are a few questions that you may first want to ask yourself.

The answer always varies depending on the type of water feature it is – Pond, Pondless Waterfall, Natural Stone Fountain or custom designed feature. The element that most affects how often you need refill your water feature is rate of evaporation.

  • How big is the water feature?
  • Is there a stream bed?
  • How many waterfalls are there?
  • What climate are you in?
  • What time of year is it?
  • Is your water feature on the north or south side of your house?
  • Is it in shade or full sun all day?
  • Do you have an AutoFill?

For design decisions it’s notable that the more waterfalls and the longer the stream bed, the more evaporation will occur.

After a few months, water feature owners begin to understand their feature and keeping it working it’s best.
