    Advice on a double waterfall build

    Hi gang!

    Just bought my new pondless waterfall kit http://midwestponds.com/products/aqu...53012-or-53005, and as I'm starting to lay things out. I really want to do a double water fall feature. Do you think the pump in this system is strong enough to supply a split manifold with a 16" wide stream/waterfall and a second 12" waterfall through a manifold? Or do you think I should add another pump? If I was thinking of this one. http://midwestponds.com/products/aqu...mp-91017-91020

    Just want to do it right the first time and not be disappointed with the flow or appearance. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Since you are in Las Vegas, get with Kent Wallace at Living Water Solutions to fine tune your pump selection for the back pressure in the system (which you have not listed) and the desired flow rate in gph (which you have not listed).

    Thanks for the tip! I haven't been by living water yet. I'll try to run by there this week.

    Figure 1700-2000 GPH for every 12 inches of width on waterfalls. Also remember to account for the rise, the vertical distance from the pump to the waterfall. a few feet wont have much impact on a good pump if your dealing with at least 2000 gph. But if the rise is 5' or more do some research about your pump.
