    Adjust Water Flow From Pool to Waterfall

    The waterfall flows into the pool. I have a seperate pump that draws water from the pool to flow iver the waterfall. It works great but sounds like Multnomah Falls. You expect to see a Grizzley standing on the rocks catching salmon.

    How can I adjust the water intake to produce less of a waterfall, a more ambient sound.

    What kind of setup do you have? Is there a valve you can turn? If you have a variable speed pump you can lower the flow rate/rpm. Or if it's a 2 speed pump switch it to low.

    Welcome to TFP.. A Great resource for all pool owning dinosaurs...

    "Most" waterfalls have some sort of gating valve that can be adjusted to control the flow somewhat.

    This valve could be at the equipment pad or more likely in a box somewhere near the waterfall.

    If you have no valve, then the best option is to go with a variable speed pump. With a VS pump you can have your waterfall be pure Grizzly, a lazy river, just a trickle or anything in between...

    Thanks for posting,
