The information below will help answer common questions about your pond and waterfall installation.

Gallons Calculation

Pond Gallons: Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.48

Stream Gallons: Length x Width x .25 Depth x 7.48

Calculate Liner Size

Pond Liner Size (Feet): Length = Pond Length + (Max Depth x 2) | Width = Pond Width + (Max Depth x 2)

Stream Liner Size (Feet): Length = Stream Length + 5 | Width = Stream Width at Widest Point + 5

Basins and Water Storage

Recommended Basin Size for a Pondless Waterfall (Gallons): Stream Gallons x 2

AquaBlox for Pondless Basin: Small = Basin Gallons / 17 | Large = Basin Gallons / 32

AquaBlox (Large): 32 Gallons | 26.5"L x 16"W x 17.5"H
