Advanced Fountain Filtration

The Berkey Supply Fountain Systems feature Filtrific’s line of patented Filtered Pump Vaults. These pump vaults feature pre-filtration to capture debris from the fountain which helps to ensure not only a clean fountain surface but also trouble-free operation of the pumping and system equipment.

Fountain Pump Filter

Did You Know?

The Patented Filtrific® Filtered Pump Vault features large capacity filter baskets which are specifically designed to capture both small and large particulate debris which continually drop into fountains. The downward motion of the water flow into the baskets act as a "debris compactor" forcing the debris into the bottom of the basket. This compacting action helps to extend the system's maintenance window.


External Fountain Pumps

The Filtrific Filtered Pump Vault can also be utilized with an external fountain pump. Multiple ports of varying sizes can be used for a suction line to pull from the bottom of the chamber.


Housing for Auto-Fill, Pump Shut-Off
and Overflow Devices

Designed to simplify a fountain installation while providing full functionality, the Filtered Pump Vault can house a wide variety of system accessories. Electric and mechanical auto-fill devices, pump shut-off devices and a built-in overflow are just a few of the system accessories which are easily housed inside the vault. For a full list of the available in-vault accessories please see

Fountain Pump Vault Placement

The Filtrific Filtered Pump Vault is designed to be either buried in the landscape or placed in a utility room. As pictured, a variety of different pumping components can be attached to one of the many available ports. Pictured below is the T390F, Filtrific's largest Filtered Pump Vault placed in a utility room with multiple ports being utilized.

Fountain Reservoir


Some fountains are designed to run continuously, only to be shut down once or twice a year for system maintenance. Others call for the ability to be turned on and off frequently.


For those fountains where frequent on-off operation is to be performed an underground reservoir is required to contain the water in transit when the system is turned off.


The Filtrific Filtered Pump Vault includes a built-in reservoir specifically designed to capture the water in transit when the system is turned off. If additional reservoir capacity is required, an unlimited number of reservoir expansion units can be attached to the Filtered Pump Vault.


Did You Know?

Berkey Fountain Systems can be used with fountains where all of the visible water is designed to disappear when turned off. Expansion reservoirs can also be added so that all surface water can disappear underground when the system is turned off.



Expansion Reservoir Units

As pictured below, expansion reservoir units can be attached to the Filtrific Filtered Pump Vault to provide additional water storage capacity.



Compact Reservoir

The 40 Gallon Expansion Reservoir units nest with the Filtered Pump Vault to create a compact “string” of water storage.

The expansion reservoir units can be placed under walkways, lawns, between rock outcropping or established plantings.

A 140 gallon expansion reservoir unit is also available for use with the T390F Filtered Pump Vault. See for additional information >


Tough Vaults


The Filtered Pump Vaults and Expansion Reservoirs are constructed of heavy-duty, thick polyethylene which is very resistant to roots, rocks and sharp objects. The reinforced design provides strength under the most demanding construction sites and installation conditions.

Amazing Strength


Filtrific® Expansion Tanks are manufactured to meet the demands of both residential and commercial installations. The reinforced top allows the tanks to accommodate placement under ground cover, lawn, walkways or beside driveways where occasional vehicular traffic might be encountered.



Filtered Pump Vault: Pre-Filtration & Pump Chamber

The Filtered Pump Vault provides pre-filtration and houses the pump as well as the system’s pumping components and accessories. It also provides a reservoir for system's water in transit. There are three sizes of Filtered Pump Vaults which are included in Berkey Fountain Systems:

The T40F Filtered Pump Vault is included in the following systems:

  • Accent 1 Small
  • Accent 2 Small
  • Accent 3 Small
  • Accent 4 Small

  • Accent 1 Large
  • Accent 2 Large
  • Accent 3 Large
  • Accent 4 Large




Surgical-grade stainless steel Filter Baskets separate debris from the water carried in through the skimmer. Interchangeable screen sizes provide customized filtering, to assure trouble-free operation of pumps and system hardware housed in the debris-free pump chamber.


Remote Placement

The Filtered Pump Vault is designed to be placed next to or away from the fountain where it is hidden and out of sight, as to not spoil the visual effects of the waterscape.


Easy Pipe Connection

The Filtered Pump Vault and Expansion Reservoir units both feature Filtrific’s Built-In Ports which allow for a very simple pipe connection.
