    Waterfall Ideas for Above ground pool with deck

    I am looking for an inexpensive way to create a waterfall for my above ground pool. I have a deck and I am considering putting it on there. Suggestions.....and go.

    Only thing waterfalls do is up your PH.

    You could adapt a pond waterfall to use it with the pool. Here is a link to an old thread where someone did the same thing. waterfall - Page 2

    Sounds like a great idea. Plumb a line into the inlet hose to a T fitting, with PVC pipe with slits cut into it. Cap the ends, allows the water to flow up and into the pipe, and out the slits. Use it with a diverter valve and you can regulate how much flow from the inlet union.

    I'm looking to create a water feature for my agp, too. It really helps keep the water temperature cooler. It was 90F tonight. And not even July, yet. Ugh.

    Check out Skippy's Cooling Fountain (link in my siggy line) It would be pretty easy to add to an AGP. It sounds nice and cools water down well.


    Ooops- never mind.. I didn't realize you meant a jungle type fake rock waterfall. I was thinking "fountain". sorry!
