    New Waterfall and Cave Install

    We finally had the Waterfall and Cave installed. Its the Rico Rock 6' Boulder Cave with side Waterfall. We are extremely happy with it and the kids love it. The small kids jump off the small waterfall and the bigger kids jump off the top. American Pond and Garden in Monroe NJ installed it. The guys were great and there workmanship is awesome.

    The inside of the cave is 4' so my one son was walk into it from the left entry way. Right side is closed off.

    How deep is the water where the big kids jump and are they jumping from six feet above water level?

    That looks awesome...that was added after the initial build correct? I would like to add a waterfall/slide or some combo. How much work/expense was the additional plumbing?

    I had the pool company plumb the pool for a waterfall. All the pipes, intakes and pumps were ran while they built the pool. This way it was a lot easier to install the waterfall afterwards
