Sheer Descent Water Feature
Sheer descent water features produce an arc of water rather than a cascade or stream effect as you would find on a natural stone water feature. This clear wall of water is projected out of a scupper which is specially engineered to create this amazing visual effect. Because the flow of water is rather smooth, it is also very common to see a sheer descent water feature with additional lighting features such as changing colors. Many features are also designed and built with a control valve to allow for control of the amount of water and the size of the “wall of water”.
The sheer descent feature is very popular in swimming pool designs but the application can also be used to create very beautiful and mesmerizing free standing water features. The scupper can be concealed in a pot or planter to create a UNIQUE image or it can also be mounted on a wall to create a very compact recirculating fountain for courtyards or patio areas.
When you are looking for a way to create a big impact from a relatively small water feature, the sheer descent water feature is the perfect selection. The addition of outdoor lighting will ensure that this focal point is as grand in the evening as it is in the daylight.
