Having a leak in the waterfall area of your waterfalls is one of the most common leak spots for any water feature. Newly built waterfalls will settle over time, thus in some cases lowering liner edges allowing water to exit your pond at the waterfall. Depending on how your waterfalls are built, will depend on the cost to disassemble and -re-build them. You can expect to see labor rates from our contractors ranging from $60 -$80 per man hour for laborers, and up to $125 hr for waterfall designers or artists.
Phone calls about leaks are the # 1 thing that our contractors deal with on a regular basis. In some cases the leak is very obvious, in other cases it could take days or weeks of monitoring and tweaking, trying to nail down specifically where the leak is.

Pricing for chasing leaks ranges from $ 60- $85 per man hour are most common for these types of services.
Chasing Leaks In Your Pond?
Follow These First Few Steps
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 occur along the perimeter of the waterfall and stream. These leaks are generally due to the ground settling which causes the water to trickle over the edge of the liner. These leaks can be easily fixed.
Think You Found Your Leak… & Want to Fix It Yourself!
- 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 add mulch.
- If you have plants growing in your BIOFALLS® 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.
