Running water can play a strong part in any garden design providing
a place for contemplation and an oasis for wildlife. It also acts
as a stimulus to the senses and brings the whole garden scene to
As parents of young children we were concerned about the safety
of children around water. With this in mind we decided on a pebble
pool. Unfortunately the ones on the market weren’t what we
were looking for, they either lacked strength or didn’t hold
enough water which resulted in the feature running dry.
The larger reservoirs needed bricks or tubes to support the various
types and weights of feature. It all looked unnecessarily complicated.
Subsequently we have designed and manufactured our own pebble pool
The current culture for ‘designer’ outside space requires
versatility and ease of application, the ‘Finia’™
was built to fit the bill.
Matching the water feature trend step for step, size and structure
has had to accommodate the increasingly popular large granite, and
stoneware, structures now available and in use in both indoor and
Careful research has proved to be the key to increasing UK and International
success and recent growth in the Australasian market and continual
expansion across Europe including both Northern and Southern Ireland
The three sizes of ‘Finia’ available are 650, 1000 &
1800, the largest of which has been F.E.A tested to carry 1 tonne
in weight and with these reservoirs removal of the feature to get
at the pump is unnecessary as all sizes have direct access. Due
to the weight that they carry all of the ’Finia’™
are now three piece units, having a special access hatch in the
For the ‘in ground’ reservoir a sandy or loose soil
structure is no problem, a reusable mould is available to create
a concrete ‘seat’, so that the ‘Finia’™
sits securely in place.
With the immense weight that the ‘Finia’™ will
take stability has been a major factor in design. A rigid structure
that holds a large amount of water but is light to work with, can
be buried in the ground or placed on the surface would seem a lot
to ask, this though is exactly what the product offers, the largest
of which weighs only 45 kilos but holds 420 litres of water and
measures 1800mm in diameter x 350mm in depth.
this product comes both from use by most of the granite and stoneware
water feature manufactures and by personal statement as here from
Paul Downer director of BALI and also director of Acer Landscapes
" The 'FINIA'™ is the most useful and easy to install
water feature reservoir I have ever used, It’s use with
heavy features is unrivalled and the many extra benefits put it
in a league of it’s own"
