Do it yourself Rock waterfall...

Has anyone put in their own Rock Waterfall? We had our pool guy do the plumbing for it. We were going to wait and have them put one in later after we save up a little more for it. Now my Dad is saying that he can do it and my husband is a little nervous about that.
Just curious if you have or have any pointers.

RE: Do it yourself Rock waterfall...

I built a waterfall on my pool that also houses the equipment. It wasn't too difficult to do. You need to decide it you are going to use real rock or form the rocks yourself out of cement. Here is a great book on how to do the whole process if you intend to use artificial rock.

I bought it myself before tackling the project.
