External water feature getting lekage problem when we did proper waterproof?
Water feature flowing fall down from the 1meter height from concrete base and when we did proper water proof later we did stone cladding. If it is small gap also we did close with marble grouting with silicon, finallly we are not able to control water lekage.
So, kindly give solution to close lekage problem.

how much leak is there?..... is your water level going down more than an inch?.... ...with a three ft tall waterfall, you're losing some water to wind and spray.... but if it's more than the inch, due to spray and evaporation, then you should look to your pump, filter, hoses and connections.....

    Sounds like the waterproofing was not fully effective or was damaged after you applied it. Did it leak before the marble cladding? Possible that the installation of the marble punctured the liner or whatever water proofing you used. Silicon is an effective water seal. Marble could transfer water past the edge of the caulk (grout is a sand based mortar). Consider a stone or concrete seal product over the marble if you are willing to accept its appearance. Otherwise you may need to remove the marble, use an elastomer type product to seal the feature, and then reinstall the marble over the top.
