Our most durable system for 9.5mm porcelain tile or 2cm granite slab facings. Fabricated from stainless steel and equipped with welded FNPT fittings installed as required for each individual indoor waterfall system installation. The Reveal 7 Pro lower basins are shipped fully equipped with all internal plumbing and pumps installed, including an automatic float valve to regulate water level and a standard drain / overflow connection. The top surface of the lower basin features a linear grain finish. The access cover is reversible to provide a tray to contain river rock (river rock by others) and is removable for required service access.

  • Exterior: yes

Mechanical:

  • Automatic Fill: yes
  • Drain Connection: yes
  • Water Supply: 1/2″ cold water to reverse osmosis
  • Electrical: GFCI circuit required
  • Electrical specifications and requirements will vary based on overall width and height of waterfall.
  • Connections to building water supply and sanitary are optional but highly recommended to minimize required maintenance and to provide overflow protection.

Allowable Surfaces:

  • Porcelain tile: 9.5mm (3/8″ to 1/2”) for standard Reveal 7 Pro Systems.
  • Granite tile / slab: 3/8” to 3/4″ maximum*.
  • Glass tile: 3/8″ to 1/2” maximum.
    • *Our Reveal 7 Pro systems are fabricated according to the specified tile thickness. Please note that standard systems ordered for 9.5mm tile for instance cannot be used with a tile of thickness more than 1/2″. Please confirm the specified tile / stone slab thickness with your order. Stone slab installations may require additional engineering for stone thicknesses of 3/4″. Height limitations also apply to stone in excess of 1/2″ thickness. Origin Falls cannot recommend the proper anchoring method for stone thicknesses in excess of 1/2″- please consult with an architect as required.
      • CAUTION! Tiles of uneven thickness or irregular in surface may likely cause splashing!
        To reduce the probability of splash, install tiles that are consistent in surface and thickness such as porcelain tile and install with minimal exposed grout joints.

      Standard components

      Every order includes all the essential components to install professional water features for walls. We also offer optional equipment depending on the installation. Here’s what’s included:

      Our most durable system for 9.5mm porcelain tile or 2cm granite slab facings. Fabricated from stainless steel and equipped with welded FNPT fittings installed as required for each individual indoor waterfall system installation. The Reveal 7 Pro lower basins are shipped fully equipped with all internal plumbing and pumps installed, including an automatic float valve to regulate water level and a standard drain / overflow connection. The top surface of the lower basin features a linear grain finish. The access cover is reversible to provide a tray to contain river rock (river rock by others) and is removable for required service access.

      The stainless steel upper basin is equipped with a surface mounting flange, welded fittings and integral manifold for precise and even water distribution along the entire tile surface. A standard built-in drain allows water within the upper basin to drain back to the lower basin when the water feature is not in use. The overall length is determined by the length of the lower basin and is generally 3 1/4″ less- refer to system diagram above.

      All stainless steel water features for walls are fabricated with a removable access cover / tray, finished on both sides and designed to be convertible for different applications. The flush surface cover configuration can be use as an exposed finish or may be inverted to provide a removable tray to contain river rock or other finish materials. The standard stainless steel tray / cover is required for the operation of the waterfall.

      Submittals are expertly prepared by our experienced staff. We fully understand all construction types and use groups and as a result our water feature submittals and water features for walls are accurately produced to integrate within the context of your building and construction detail requirements. Shop drawings for how to build an indoor waterfall typically include plans, sections, elevations and large scale details coordinated within the building design including relevant adjacency (detailed shop drawings only). Our component drawings are included at no additional cost and are standard for every order. Detailed shop drawings are included as an option for all orders and pricing is based on the level of detailed required for each individual installation.

      Our quality asynchronous submersible pumps are virtually silent, energy efficient and are designed to operate 24/7. Pumps sizing is determined by the overall width and height of the water feature. Multiple pumps are typically required for indoor waterfall systems over 76″ in length.

      Waterproofing membrane (Reveal 7 Pro Tile systems only) specifically designed for wet-wall applications is furnished with each standard order. The membrane material is simple to install and industrial strength to take on the most demanding fully-submersed installations. Most water features can be flood tested within hours of applying the membrane thereby providing minimal delay during the installation and peace of mind that the substrate is thoroughly waterproofed prior to the application of the finish tile.

      Additional hardware included: 3/8″ PEX tubing, underwater sealant and stainless screws.

      Origin Falls was first to introduce an ozone based water purification system designed specifically for purifying water in our water features for walls and we continue to innovate with our o3 Zone Pure Water Systems™ for indoor waterfall systems. Designed into each of our indoor waterfalls are the most advance ozone sanitation systems. It is a well known fact that ozone effectively kills legionella. Since 1999 Origin Falls has been collaborating with a leading ozone system manufacturer to incorporate the latest ozone technology into all of our products. We have developed a system using proprietary technology that is completely reliable and low maintenance. Our ozone systems provide sanitation and disinfection in multiple applications, with no negative impact on the environment. These benefits accrue across all our core products, leading to lower costs, better health, protection from litigation, fewer negative outcomes, and knowing for sure that your sanitation requirements are met.

      Every Origin Falls water feature systems include as standard equipment a simple to maintain reverse osmosis water purification system designed specifically for our Reveal 7 Professional indoor / outdoor water feature systems.

      Our built-in drain pump system includes a small auxiliary pump that is internally connected to the lower basin overflow drain to provide for simple mechanical removal of the water feature water for the purposes of maintenance and routine cleaning. This pump can also be programmed to automatically remove a small quantity of water from the reservoir and replenish it with fresh water at intervals determined by the user.

      Our work doesn’t stop at the loading dock. After the many hours we have spent building your indoor waterfall, we want it to arrive in perfect condition. We carefully crate each indoor waterfall kits in our facility and supervise the loading.

      Friendly and knowledgeable support is available prior to purchase and for the life of your waterfall. Our excellent support is one of the many reasons for our success. Find out how to build an indoor waterfall and more about our indoor waterfall kits.
