90" GARDENFALL Assembly
1. Remove the Gardenfall panel from its shipping carton.
2. Lean the glass panel upright against a wall until you reach step 6.
3 Move all the packing material from the base including: the light kit, bag of river
figure A
rocks and pump/filter/valve assembly.
4 Take the valve assembly and attach it to the threaded opening on the pump by
screwing it in (figure A). Also attach the sponge filter to the threaded opening on
the side of the pump (figure B).
5.
Place the assembled pump/filter/valve assembly into the reservoir with the
valve next to the side that has the hole cut out for the cord (figure C). Remove
cord strain relief (figure D). Pull the cord through the hole, leaving approximately
figure B
12 inches of the cord in the base (figure E). Apply strain relief to cord (figure F).
6. Take Gardenfall panel from step 2, and with 2 people, slide the panel into the
center of the base as shown in figure G. (Note: place cardboard over base to
protect it from scratching, do not rest the Gardenfall panel directly on the base as
this may scratch the base). It is important to place the panel in the reservoir to the
side with the plumbing coming out of the bottom.

.7 Once the panel is placed in the base, turn the thumb screws (as shown in figure H) to secure the panel in the
base.
.8 Line up the pump/filter/valve assembly to the hose coming out of the panel, as shown. Simply hand screw
the two connections together. See figures I and J.
.9 Fill the reservoir with water. Do not fill the plug hole. Plug it in and the water should begin to flow. Adjust
the flow if necessary by turning the red handle on the filter/valve assembly as shown in figure K. Note: Too
much water flow will cause dripping and splashing. Water level must be maintained at least one inch above
pump. If water level drops below the top of the pump, it may damage the pump.
10 Place the metal trays in the top of the reservoir and arrange the rocks in them as you like.
Installing the Light Accessory
FOR DOWN LIGHTING
1 Insert the light as shown (figure L) on the top center of the waterfall panel. In the center you will find a slot to
accommodate the light.
2 You are provided self-stick cups to hold the wire. Place them as shown (figure M) along the side as well as the
top
3 Plug the light into the transformer (figure N). Plug the transformer into an outlet.
4. You can adjust the light to achieve a nice effect on the water panel.
FOR UP LIGHTING
1 The light may be placed in the rock tray, creating a different lighting effect for your Gardenfall.
Note: Whereas the light can be submersed as it is an underwater lamp. The transformer for the
light CANNOT BE PUT IN THE WATER. It must be left outside the reservoir.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
IN ORDER TO CLEAN THE GLASS SIMPLY REMOVE THE HEADER AND
UNSCREW THE STAINLESS STEAL DISTRIBUTION PANEL. SLIDE THE
GLASS PANEL UPWARDS TO REMOVE IT FROM THE BASE. FILL THE BASIN
WITH WATER AND PLUG INTO A STANDARD ELECTRICAL OUTLET.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOVE THE DISPLAY ONCE IT IS FILLED WITH
WATER. EMPTY THE BASIN BEFORE REMOVING FROM THE WALL.
MAINTAIN THE WATER LEVEL BY FILLING TO BELOW THE TOP EDGE OF
THE BASIN ABOUT ONCE A WEEK. WATERFALLS THAT ARE PLACED
NEAR AIR CONDITIONING VENTS AND INTAKES WILL EVAPORATE AT A
FASTER RATE. DO NOT OPERATE IF LOW ON WATER. IF HARD WATER IS
A PROBLEM IN YOUR AREA, THE USE OF DISTILLED WATER WILL
GUARANTEE THE BEST RESULTS. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO DRAIN THE
RESERVOIR ABOUT ONCE EVERY THREE MONTHS AND REFILL WITH
CLEAN WATER. BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET CLEANING AGENTS INTO THE
WATER. IF NECESSARY, WIPE THE INSIDE OF THE RESERVOIR WITH A
CLEAN CLOTH TO REMOVE ANY BUILD UP.
GLASS/METAL WATERFALL MAINTENANCE
1. It is recommended that the water feature be left running
continuously and shut down once a week for cleaning of the
mirror or glass. Use standard glass cleaner on all surfaces of the
waterfall feature. It is also recommended that the water feature
be drained once every three to four months. After draining, wipe
the inside of the reservoir with a wet rag. It is not necessary to
use any cleaning agents to remove dirt and debris from the
reservoir. If you use soap or cleaning solutions make sure to
rinse the reservoir thoroughly before refilling it with clean water. If
not properly rinsed, this could cause foaming from the soap
residue.
3. Over a period of time, if the water in your area is hard it may
cause the glass to develop a hazy or cloudy film on its surface.
Adding a water softener such as Protec to the reservoir water will
help control hard water stains. See bottle for proper instructions
on use.
It is easy to remove the hazy film from the glass
surface. When the glass is completely dry, take a dry soft cloth
and wipe or buff the surface in circular patterns.
Note: A glass cleaner only is recommended in the upkeep of
the glass surface.
4. If the unit develops an algae problem you will want to access
the reservoir through the rock tray. Algae is detected by a sour
odor and/or white gel like substance. If this occurs then add an
algaecide such as Fountec to the unit as directed. Bluworld
keeps these maintenance products in stock for your
convenience.
5. If white particles should build up on the glass it is most likely
calcium, which may be prevalent in your water supply. This may
be removed with Calcium Lime Remover (CLR). You may also
use a scraper or razor blade to remove the deposits. To reduce
maintenance on your water feature, use distilled water.

2. The waterfall feature will continuously lose water due to
evaporation. Evaporation is dependent on many variables such
as climate, humidity, temperature, etc. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT
THE WATER LEVEL BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES. For the
first few months of use, you should monitor the reservoir
periodically to determine the rate of evaporation on the waterfall
feature. If a pump runs dry or very low the following can happen:
The Pump Can Burn Out And Void The Warranty
Residue May Spray Onto The Waterfall Surface
Spraying From Manifold Delivery System May Occur

Attention: New Warranty in effect as of August 1, 2008
Bluworld’s Warranty has changed as of August 1, 2008 and supersedes all previous warranties for product
purchased after August 1, 2008. If there is printed material within this shipment it is considered void and the
Warranty as stated below is policy.
Bluworld product is warranted against defects that render it unfit for its reasonably intended use.
This Warranty is not extended to cover use of the product for a purpose other than as intended, and if
the product is used unreasonably, or for purposes other than as intended, or if it is altered, modified
or repaired by a party other than Bluworld, then the Warranty shall be null and void. The Warranty
is in effect for a period of six months beginning from the date of sale to the original retail purchaser
and the rights under this Warranty are limited to the original retail purchaser. Bluworld will, upon
written notification thereof, take commercially reasonable steps to correct such defects (see
“manufacturers defects below”), at Bluworld’s sole option, by suitable repair, replacement, or refund.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTYOF
MERCHANTABILITY, FITNES FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHER WARRANTY OF
QUALITY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY OF TITLE
AGAINST PATENT INFRINGEMENT. Corrections of nonconformities, in the manner and for the
period of time provided above, shall constitute fulfillment of all liabilities of Bluworld to any Dealer
with respect to the goods, whether based on contract, negligence, and strict tort or otherwise.
Bluworld contract sales personnel, including but not limited to authorized Dealers and Resellers
(collectively, "Sales Personnel"), are not authorized to make warranties about Bluworld merchandise.
ORAL STATEMENTS DO NOT CONSTITUTE WARRANTIES. Oral statements made by Bluworld
employees or other Sales Personnel shall not be relied upon by a Dealer and shall not become part of
any contract for sale. The entire sales contract between a Dealer and Bluworld will be set forth in the
invoice and/or accompanying or reference documents provided by Bluworld to the Dealer or Sales
Personnel. No other warranties are given beyond those set forth in those documents. Please be aware
that you may have valuable rights under the state law in which you reside. Some of the provisions of
this Warranty may be prohibited by your state law in which case your state law will govern and
control. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages,
so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Some states do not allow limitations on how
long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you. This Warranty gives
you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
Our products are warranted for a period of six months against defects in finish, pumps and
other product performance issues. Light bulbs are not warranted. Our experience has shown that in
practically 100% of incidents that any defect is apparent within a week of installation and use.
Appearance defects should be noticed upon unpacking the fountain. We have found that finishes have
‘failed’ due to poor maintenance, local water conditions with minerals affecting the finish, attempts to
clean with harsh chemicals or abrasive pads being used. Performance of water flow, spitting, and
other ‘leaks’, are usually caused by debris getting into the fountain, buildup of minerals, algae from
poor water or lack of maintenance. Pumps can also fail due to water levels not being maintained in the
reservoir and this is not covered by the warranty.
MANUFACTURERS DEFECT DEFINED - A distinct and obvious flaw in the manufacturing
of the product that inhibits the product’s ability to function properly or a distinct and obvious flaw in
the workmanship of the product that affects its physical appearance. Bluworld water features are
manufactured under generally accepted manufacturing techniques as recognized by the International
Organization of Standardization. Our products are hand made and hand finished thus minor
scratches in materials within accepted ranges are not considered defects.
SLATE- Many of our products contain natural slate. Slate can vary to a large degree and that
individuality is what is considered to be unique and inherent to the beauty of the natural product as no
two are exactly alike. Photos in our marketing materials are representative of our slate products but
should not be relied on to duplicate the photo. We use natural mined slate in our products. Personal
taste in the appearance of slate is not considered a reason for a return.
MIRRORS-We use tempered mirror in our water features for safety reasons and the process of
tempering the mirror may cause the mirrors not to reflect images in the same manner of a
non-tempered mirror which is designed to reflect images in their true form. When water is flowing
over our tempered mirror surfaces, these slight differences are not noticeable and this is not
considered a reason for a return.
COPPER- Since we have numerous products manufactured with natural pure copper it is
important to note that we do protect the copper with a clear heat-baked on powder coat material. This
material should last for a minimum of one year but water conditions may affect the length of
protection it will afford to the copper. Copper oxidizes differently than other metals and personal
tastes differ as to an individual’s perception of it. It may oxidize as a green oxidation or rose colored
blush. You can minimize this by wiping down the oxidation and then applying wax or Pledge™ to that
area. This condition is not a reason for a return or warranty claim.
