Water Basins and Fountain Systems AQUA LINEA

AQUA LINEA is the classic for water basins and fountain systems in professional gardening and landscaping. All fountains essentially consist of a solidly edged water trough, which is available in rectangular, round and semi-round designs. However, we are happy to manufacture special shapes in our in-house production. The fountain bowls can be combined with a water wall. Here, the water is drained via wide stainless steel water trays or via tubular water inlets. Alternatively, a water inlet pipe can be mounted on the stable edge of the water basin, which pours into the fountain basin with a quiet bubbling sound.

  • Flexible in height, width and length; water basins up to over 12 m long possible
  • Due to the modular systems there are infinity combination possibilities
  • Easy installation: all water troughs are completely pre-assembled before leaving the factory
  • High-quality fabrication and laser cutting quality MADE IN GERMANY
  • Delivery from stock and special production possible, as directly from the manufacturer
  • Delivery includes all necessary assembly material
  • Corten steel water troughs for protection against stagnant water, with a high-quality and UV-stable coating on the inside
  • Well planned system, due to over 10 years of experience in gardening and landscaping
  • Complex 3D CAD design for customised products

Multiple Fountain System AQUA LINEA

Our AQUA LINEA fountain system leaves almost nothing to be desired. The fountain troughs can be rectangular, semi-round or round. The water inlet can be provided for example via a water wall, via tubular water inlets, as a nozzle installed in the trough or via numerous other variants such as spring bowls or spring blocks. Be inspired by our ideas.

Special plastic coating against rusting

All Gartenmetall® water troughs are coated from the inside with an elastic, UV-stable and black plastic using the hot-spray process. The special plastic is extremely elastic (elongation at break up to 100%) and sticks excellently to the metallic surface. The material is temperature resistant from -50°C to +150°. It is also possible to apply the coating over insulation boards to protect the water from overheating in summer.

Water Basins AQUA LINEA - Various Basin Shapes and Water Inlets

Thanks to our own production, we can manufacture the fountain troughs in almost any shape and dimension: e.g. rectangular, semi-round, round and of course also in special shapes. The water can splash, swell or bubble into the pool in many different ways. If you need further suggestions and ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Position pump

There are three different options for the position of the pump: The simplest option is to set the pump directly into the water basin (variant A). In this case, it is visible and audible. In variant B, the pump is installed invisibly, dry and external with wall bushing. However, this requires a higher-quality pump. The third variant (C) is particularly suitable if there is already a water reservoir in which the pump can be placed. With this variant, no water needs to be refilled. In contrast, this is regularly necessary for fountains with a closed water circulation system.

Overview variants position pumps

Variant A
Water pump directly in the water trough as a pond pump.

Variant B
Water pump in the water wall.

Installed externally in the dry.

Variant C
Water pump in pump sump
with floor drain.


Note on storing the pump in winter

In case of frost, the pump must be uninstalled and all hoses must be drained. To do this, clean the pump, check the unit for damage and store it submerged or filled in a frost-free place so that the seals do not dry out. The plug should be stored in a dry place.

Lighting of the AQUA LINEA Fountain Troughs

For atmospheric effects, we recommend installing an LED light rail or LED spotlights. The LED rail can be placed in or under the water chute depending on the desired effect. All water chutes are already prepared for the installation of these light rails. If the pool is to be illuminated instead of the chute, the waterproof LED rail can also be placed directly in the well trough using a magnet. Alternatively, we offer round LED underwater lights in a set of 3.

With the standard models of the fountain series AQUA LINEA we already cover many customer requirements. As the water basins and fountain systems are manufactured to order, almost all customer-specific dimensions can be realized. We also meet special requirements with the following accessories:

    • Grating for protection against submersion Pump cover for pond pump
    • LED lighting for water chute or for installation in water trough
    • Stainless steel overflow standpipe for exact regulation of water height
    • Water inlet via inlet pipe, water chute or via external inlet

Water maintenance

If no water treatment system with filter etc. is installed in the fountain, the water must be replaced regularly. Furthermore we recommend the use of chlorine multitabs. These support flocculation, stabilize the PH value, disinfect the water and therefore prevent algae growth. For the tablets to work well, it is necessary to monitor and stabilize the pH at 7.0 to 7.4. The Gartenmetall® plastic coating is stable to chlorine dissolved in the water. The multitabs can therefore be used without hesitation as long as they are dissolved in the water and do not lie directly on the coating.

Automatic water filling

To prevent the water level from falling below a defined level and the pump from running dry, a level controller can be installed in the water tank. It is mounted at the height of the required water level. If the water level drops by 5 mm, the solenoid valve will open and water will be added automatically.

Lighting for foam bubbler
The water feature with foam bubbler for round and rectangular fountain troughs can be staged even better with the right lighting, attracting all eyes even in the dark. Suitable for fountain systems in home gardens but also for spring fountains in public places. The height of the fountain depends on the pump which is used.

VIDEO – Noise reduction with fine mesh

Noise reduction for water fountains AQUA LINEA
What calms one person, annoys another: The SILENCIO ANT SPLASH splash guard, a fine mesh made of stainless steel, significantly reduces the background noise of our water inlets. The water jet from the ISAR, LECH or GERLOS water chutes is broken when it hits the close-meshed grid fixed just below the water surface. This reduces splashing noises as well as water splashes. Experience the difference.
