The Patio Basin from Aquascape Inc.

This can be done using the decorative patio basin. This basin allows you to place it in almost any location that you could imagine a water feature - a dull spot in the backyard, by the patio, or even in your home!  The same concept is used as with the aquabasin, but the patio basin can be installed above ground...with no digging neccessary!    

Setting up the patio basin is simple! Start by finding a location that is nice and level. If the intended spot is not level then you will want to make sure you level it before installing the basin. After finding a location, choose an appropriately sized feature for the basin and the area that you are placing it in. You will want to make sure that the splash radius of the water feature is within the area of the basin, and should weigh no more than 100 lbs (including the stone used to accent the water feature). 

Once you have selected an area for the basin it is time to start setting it up! Start by rinsing the pieces of the basin to remove any dust or debris from the factory. Then you will place the water catch basin in the area you are installing the water feature and place the pump in the center of the basin. If you plan on adding lighting to your patio basin, the lights will be placed in the basin at this  time as well so that they can be pulled through the top of the unit. Now you will place the top part of the basin over the bottom reservoir, and pull the lights through the center opening. Next connect the tubing of the water feature you selected to the pump. (make sure you run the cords through the notch in the top piece of the basin in order to avoid making the basin uneven). Now add water to the basin. After you have completed everything else it is time to add a layer of stone to the top of the basin.

After completing these steps you can plug in your pump, and ejoy!
