Planning a Water Feature
Water features make a great addition to your pool or
garden and Zodiac have plenty for you to choose from.
The first step to planning your water feature is to consult a
water feature installer, who can advise you on the best style,
location, and equipment. If you need to find a water
feature installer, send us an email or
call us on 1300 794 186 we would be delighted to put you in touch
with an installer in your area.
Pump & Flow Requirements
A pump is essential to a water feature, so it's necessary to
choose one that will deliver the optimum flow rate for your water
feature. Select a pump that can move more water than what your
water feature's basic operation requires, as this gives you the
freedom to make adjustments to your water feature down the
Water Feature Filters
It's important that you install a good filter in the plumbing
line to your water features, stopping any debris from disrupting
the flow of the water.
Water Feature Structural Housing
Depending on your chosen water feature, you may need to install
a structure to house it. Water feature housings come in a wide
variety of types and sizes, including retaining walls, piers and
The amount of water flow that is required to achieve the effect
you desire will impact the position of the water feature. The way
the water feature is plumbed will also have a significant impact on
the water flow and therefore the performance of your water feature.
Choose a location that's away from wind and sun, reducing water
evaporation. Also avoid any underground cables and lines that may
be running under your yard.
Council Regulations for Water Features
Before installing your water feature we recommend that you
contact your local council to ensure that it complies with any
regulations or guidelines.
Custom Designed Water Features
Standard Zodiac water features come in a range of lengths from
300mm to 2440mm. Water features outside this size can also be
custom made to fit almost any length or radius.
Zodiac water features can also be installed at varying heights,
with the recommended maximum height at 1.2 metres above water
Water Feature Maintenance
Water features require very little maintenance, apart from
occasionally cleaning the filter and topping up the water.
