Preformed Fountain Debris Skimming
Visible Debris Reduction
In system where a pool is present at the base of the Preformed Fountain a vertical pipe skimmer can be installed to pull surface debris from the feature into the Filtered Pump Vault. From there the debris is caught in the built-in filter baskets which only require periodic cleaning. By constantly pulling debris from the feature, less debris will be visible to disrupt the visual effect of the fountain.

Convenient Location for Pumping Accessories
Pump Shut-Off Device - Prevents pump damage by automatically turns pump off when the water level in the fountain drops too low for safe operation due to evaporation
Autofill Device - Automatically adds water to the system when water is lost due to evaporation
Overflow Pipe - Integrated into the Filtered Pump Vault, the overflow pipe routs extra water to a drainable spot in the landscape or storm sewer. The overflow port is utilized when an over abundance of water enters the system due to heavy rainfall.
Often in a preformed fountain system, the pump ends up being placed in a difficult to access location. Accessing the pump for either service or repair can be very laborious and time consuming. The Berkey Fountain Pump Kit solves this problem by placing the pump and pumping accessories in an underground filtered pump vault, away from the waterscape where components are out of sight and easy to service.
