Disappearing Fountain ReservoirHaving a disappearing fountain or water feature can't be easier with this reservoir.

This includes the basin, the heavy duty top grate, and mesh grate - supporting 350 pounds! You can support even more by reinforcing the center of the top plate with a cinder block.
Super Easy DIY Install
A disappearing water feature is a great way to greet people as they visit your home or garden. Whether you choose a bubbling urn like the one in the "How-to" video below, basalt columns, a nice flat bowl, or water cascading over stacked flagstone, choosing to accent your yard with a disappearing fountain is rapidly growing to become a perfect match to those that want a little water feature without the mess of upkeep. Disappearing fountains attract birds and other wildlife too!

The average install takes little time - usually two hours or so. If you're looking for a really nice garden accent, we strongly encourage you to have some fun with this little project. You'll be glad you did.

Our Disappearing Fountain Reservoirs are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A! They come in three sizes to fit almost any application (2′x2′, 3′x3′, and 4′x4′).

Square reservoirs hold 27% more water and have 27% more surface area than circular reservoirs, thus giving you more volume. Square reservoirs have a larger splash zone and offer greater flexibility. This means you have to refill them less often, and are less likely to burn up the pump.

Our material is not brittle and is not subject to sun damage which leads to cracking. Our Reservoirs WILL NOT crack due to age!

Our grating is tough, strong, and durable! Although the Top Grate is very durable, we highly recommend the use of a cinder block (Brick) under the center to help support the weight and help guard against bowing.

All you need is a pump, hose, a little imagination and some elbow grease and you're on your way. Customer support is a phone call away, please call us to be sure you size your pump and reservoir correctly - we're here to help with factory trained technicians and salespeople.

DFR "Splash Pad". Allows you to install the DFR2 and yet collect water from a feet splash area (5' x 5' Square) instead of the 2' x 2' DFR2 alone. Just install the DFR2, center the Splash Pad over the basin, cut inside the perimeter of the reservoir/basin (slightly raised at outer edge of Splash Pad), and you are ready to go!

Another Accessory is an "Auto-Fill" assembly. The DFR Auto-Fill Assembly includes a Heavy-Duty 1/2" Bulkhead Fitting, 90' Elbow, and Adjustable Float Valve.

  • Made from Heavy-Duty Plastic
  • Very Durable
  • Stainless Steel Adjusting Hardware
  • 1/2" Standard Fitting

Great Basin for Water Feature April 15, 2016
Reviewer: RVD from Lake Wylie, SC United States  
We rebuilt our Basalt Column water feature when the original basin and pump needed replaced two years after professional installation!!  We are so pleased with the quality and design of your 24" x 24" basin. The grid openings let 3/4" tubing be threaded through virtually anywhere and thickness of the top supports the heavy basalt well.

Our replacement Tidal Wave MD 1000 pump with attached Triton 3-way diverter slid right through the corner cut-out. If motor freight had not been so high, we might have ordered the 36"x 36", but this size covers our 'splash zone'.  The basalt rocks were so heavy and irregularly shaped, that we decided using the plastic grid was too difficult for us to situate. (We couldn't get the drilled holes in the columns lined up with the grid openings and still mark where the holes in the grid needed to be). But we kept the grid and may try to install in the future if we need to clean out or work on the feature..
Thank you for this excellent product!!
