The purpose of the HydroChamber™ is to house the waterfall pump and store water in one convenient, easy to install unit. It also eliminates the need for the large excavations, underlayment, pond liner, a slotted pump vault, two Eco Blox, and river rock that make up typical pondless water feature basins. The HydroChamber™ saves you time, money, and effort.

    Eco Blox require a separate pump vault, and must be covered with stonesWhat You Get With Eco Blox Based Pondless Systems

  • A large excavation filled with EcoBlox, a slotted pump vault, underlayment, rubber liner, and hundreds of pounds of rock and gravel for the water storage basin
  • Debris such as leaves, blossoms, weed seeds, tree seeds and other organic debris will get trapped into the rock and gravel basin
  • The force of the waterfall will push that debris deeper and deeper into the gravel basin
  • The debris will break down and decay
  • Gravel basin based pondless waterfall kits grow excessive algaeDecayed organic debris turns into sludge
  • Sludge turns the water brown
  • Sludge smells like rotten eggs
  • Dust, pollen, bird waste, phosphorus and other dissolved organics will remain in the water
  • Dissolved organics and sludge WILL FEED ALGAE
  • Potentially unhealthy water conditions for children, pets, and wildlife
  • Eco Blox gravel basin based pondless water features become an algae eyesore and a maintenance nightmare

    Buyer beware!  You get what you pay for.
    There is areason why every Eco Blox basin pondless system retailer
    DOES NOT provide you with "how to clean it" information.
    Their Eco Blox pondless systems simply can not be cleaned!
