Q: Can you build me any type of Water
A: There is little we have not built built before
and almost anything is possible. The best thing to
do is contact us and outline your idea. We can
normally create a functional water feature without
compromising the artistic vision behind it.
Q: Is there a size limit to the Water
Features you produce?
A: We have produced Water Walls in excess of 10m in
height. There is no reason why a screen could not be
even larger. It is worth considering that larger
screens require multiple panels and the joins
between panels can cause a very small amount of
splashing. Therefore very tall screens require
a suitable catchment below.
Our bubble panels and tanks can be produced to
literally any size and shape.
Q: What is the tallest single panel (no
seams) Water Wall possible?
A: Using toughened glass the maximum is 4m x 4m.
Using stainless steel we can build to any size
providing we can weld and re-polish the screen on
Do your Water Features stay clean?
A: We provide chlorine granules and water softener
to ensure a long life and clean, clear operation of
the water feature. The chlorine prevents the growth
of algae or green water and the softener prevents
Do Water Features splash?
A: Dependent upon design some do, some don't. We
always engineer our water features to run as
smoothly as possible. None of our water walls splash
other than the extremely large types containing
seems. Even these water walls require only a small
base tank to recapture any stray water. Water
control is key to the success of our designs and we
always consider and discuss all concerns prior to
What is your scope of works?
A: We look after everything to do with the Water
Feature. From drawings to final installation,
including associated hardware and decorative
Do features come with filters?
A: Each Water Feature is completely unique. All will
require some level of filtration. Clean water is key
to problem free operation. Each pump and filter
system is customised based on the water features
location and operating conditions.
What is the lead time for a large Water Feature?
A: Typically 4-8 weeks from design approval to final
commissioning. Sometimes people come to us with a
much tighter deadline. We rarely say no, however,
the process is much smoother and potentially less
costly if planned well in advance. If it's possible
- we will find a way!
The main construction materials we work with are
Glass, Stainless steel, Acrylic and Slate. Finishing
details and decor often incorporate a variety of
other materials, in particular decorative metals and
See the table below to illustrate different
materials used to create our Water Wall screens and
other Water Features.
Satin stainless steel is used extensively in
the production of our contemporary water
features. We can grade the brushed
finish from course through to very fine.
Mirrored stainless steel is often used
to create screens for water to cascade
down. The mirror finish is almost
perfect and although costly is a very
desirable material to have on show in
any modern setting.
Toughened glass either clear, textured
or frosted. The smooth clingy surface of
glass plays beautifully with water to
create the ultimate effect. See our
Water Wall section to have a look.

The implementation of existing technologies into
Water Feature design has aided our bespoke Water
Features reputation for both quality and product
Most static large Water Features are powered by
surface mounted single phase swimming pool pumps.
Designed for constant efficient operation and
powerful enough to transfer water several metres in
the air. Given the size of our water features a
capable pump is very important. For portable water
features we use German built submersible pumps,
these fit discreetly into the base tank of the water
feature and provide a solution that removes the
requirement for external plant equipment.
Large scale Water Features are
water flow to perform correctly and neatly. In the
case of a Water Wall too much pressure will cause
the water to leave the screen, too little and the
water jets will split and not produce an even sheet
of water. We use particle filters to strain the
water and remove any possibility of delicate spray
bars clogging. Trash filters in the pump chambers
will remove larger solids before they get to the
main filter systems.
For commercial display Water Features a simple pump
and hose is not sufficient. A complete water
filtration system is designed around each Water
Feature dependant on its location, operating
conditions and access limitations.
Aquatic Impact design custom LED lighting effects
for integration into our
Water Features. Our systems are fully programmable
and able to colour/temperature match corporate
colour schemes. Fully waterproof colour changing LED
enclosures can be integrated for the
ultimate water and light show.
Traditional cool white halogen lamps installed in
underwater IP68 spotlights/floodlights are
frequently used on larger spaces of water. For
example outdoor reflection pools can be dramatically
flooded with light in the evenings.
More complex water features can often create
different effects. Computer control of jumping jets,
flow rates and lighting schemes along with
automated, programmable control can create a much
more dynamic display and increases the value of the
water feature to the onlooker.
Large outdoor water features often benefit from
remote control operation which is available at a low
cost addition to all displays.
We can read, create and distribute drawings in all
major formats. We use AutoCAD 2008 which is the
industry standard. We are also able to create video
and still 3D renderings of the water features to
form part of a presentation for client or discussion
