    True the add to the look ,I have a small pond that empties into the bigger pond and find it a great place for plants and they really help with cleaning the water .Plus small ponds or basins are great for critters to come get a drink and really add to the appeal of the pond .

    Exactly. We see so many birds, frogs, chipmunks, squirrels - all kinds of critters use the shallow pools for bathing and getting a drink.

    One simple solution might be to add a water replacement float valve to the lower area. if water does empty out in a power outage then when the power returns the pump will be restricted until the water level returns. This would keep you from having to rip every thing apart. THE CONCERN THERE IS HOW MUCH WATER WOULD BE LOST AND WHERE DID IT GO
