Filtered Pump Vault
Whether you are building, a backyard waterfall and
stream, or a pond, concrete fountain, a water wall, or a rock column water feature, make sure the reservoir or the pump won't clog up and fail like other pondless waterfall kits, pond kits, or rock column kits or pump vaults on the market. Other pondless waterfall systems use a pit lined with rubber liner, filled with rocks and maybe with plastic crates to store and filter the water. As you would expect, they clog up and fail over time. Other pump vault systems offer tanks with filter chambers outside of them. This means it takes two tanks to do what a Filtrific Filter does with one. Also, many times the tank or pump chamber that is supposed to hold the water when the pump is turned off, is too small to contain all the water in motion. Unfortunately, then when the water is turned off, the water drains out the bottom of the water feature. When the pump is turned back on all the water that was lost has to be added back into the system to get it running again.
Be very careful when you are looking to buy a pondless
waterfall or stream kit or any other water feature that you evaluate the water in motion storage the kit offers. Most pondless waterfall and stream kits or pump chamber systems don't include enough water storage to contain the water in motion when the pump is turned off. Unfortunately then, when the water is turned off, it all drains out the bottom of the water feature. When the pump is turned back on all the water that was lost has to be added back into the system to get it running again.
How accessible is the water storage? Other pondless waterfall systems use a pit lined with rubber liner, filled with rocks and maybe with plastic crates to store the water when the pump is turned off. These pondless waterfall systems eventually clog up with debris and fail over time. The way these rock pit/crate systems are designed they are very difficult to pump the water out when the water gets dirty and contaminated. With a Filtrific Filter tanks system you always have the option to pump out all the water in your water feature and put new water in if you choose.
Berkey Supply water feature kits utilize Filtrific Filter tanks which can be placed remotely in the landscape or in mechanical rooms. A natural looking water feature shouldn't have a plastic skimmer on the edge of it and a concrete water feature shouldn't have a pump sitting on the bottom of it. Filtrific skimmers are made to be hidden it the water feature and attached to piping that feeds the water to the filter tank.
