Pond, Waterfall & Water Garden Repair/Leak Detection
If you notice you have to add water on a daily basis, or hear the "hissing" of your water fill valve constantly running, (after properly setting the water level) you may have a leak, most of which occurs along the perimeter of the waterfall and stream. These leaks are generally due to the ground settling, around your Media, Middletown & Delaware County, PA surrounding area new installation, which causes the water to trickle over the edge of the liner. These leaks can be easily fixed.
• Check the perimeter of the pond, waterfall, and stream for any areas that are wet. This is usually a good indicator that water is leaking over the liner.
• Check to make sure any slow moving sections of the stream/waterfall have not become obstructed by leaves, plants, or other debris. This can cause the water to back up and leak over the edge of the liner.
• Once you have found the leak, pack additional soil under the liner to raise the edge above the water level. Hide the exposed liner by replacing the gravel and adding mulch.
• If you have plants growing in your waterfall filter, it is common for their growth to displace the water, causing it to flow over the back side of the filter. Simply remove enough of the plants to lower the water level.
