Installing a water feature using a reservoir
Choosing the right place to site your water feature reservoir is important, think about the backdrop, do you need space behind it to put pot plants?
Adding Low voltage lights can also produce a spectacular effect at night.
Make sure the hole you dig is level and at the right depth (typically 300mm deep or 1 foot)
If the total weight of the feature exceeds 150 kg, think about soil structure, will it subside over time? If you think it will subside add a suitable concrete or hardcore base, this will save you having to re-level at a future date. STEP 3
After leveling the base put the reservoir in and make sure it is level .
After placing the reservoir, back fill around the reservoir sides. If the feature is over 250 kg soil can be pushed into the support column for finia reservoirs or an additional support added inside the reservoir.
When the lid is in place your chosen water feature can be placed on top. After positioning your chosen water feature turn on the pump .
Make sure all electrical cables are adequately protected, connections are water proof and the whole electrical installation is safe. If in doubt consult a qualified electrician. Plant round the back of the feature and add decorative stones to to hide the remainder of the reservoir
