So are you guys mainly using a heatgun which I do not own, or are you using boiling water and molding the spout? Id like to do this on the spout coming outta my bio filter iv made, I like the look and the water spread.

I did something similar with my waterfall.. my filter/garbage can filters water vertically and I put 2 pipe fittings coming out the top and attached a T connection to one and the other comes straight out.: I used 2 flexible pipes to go to left and right side of falls and straight one provides the middle flow all are hidden in the rocks.

Basic, but looks right for this pond Husband made from Wood...Knocked to shape some tin
metal found in the garden..metal at the back of fall to keep water of the wood..pond lined with
good quality PVC material...Green is an issue, but too many fish maybe, the route of the problem.

I am sure some of you have thought of this but those who hadnt and are trying to figure out a waterfall setup...i made this one for my basement pond, but you could easily make and use an end like this for your waterfall(s) outdoors by tucking one or more inbetween some flat stones and sealing with some waterfall foam. and would work well for multiple spill points in the falls. much better than water coming out like the end of your garden hose. you can see theres good aeration, and the water sheet is 8" wide where it hits the waters surface. this is a 2" pipe heated flattened out at one end and shaped so the slot is nice and even. i know i could get atleast 12" on a 3" pipe. i have a tetrapond 1000 gph pump running this system. a couple ball valves to control water flow out each spill point.
All I did was lay my 1.5" black corrugated hose from the filter underneath some rocks and let it flow over a wide rock. It looks nice, now I want to put one more in.
