Garnet Residence

A stainless steel c channel pours water into an underground water basin, offering children a safe place to interact with water.

Fabulous juxtaposition of materials! - I love your use of corten, gravel and concrete for a water feature. Does the concrete need to be lined, or is poured concrete sufficient to maintain the water?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

Thanks, In this application, we inset a long stainless steel channel. A copper pipe is plumbed through the concrete wall and feeds the stainless steel trough (so water never sits or runs along concrete). Without using a steel trough, I would recommend adding a water proofing agent to the concrete.
