Fountain Wall Skimmers

Berkey Fountain Kits offer three different return devices or "skimmers". Skimmers “skim” water and debris from the surface of the fountain which is then returned to Filtrific Filtered Pump Vault for filtration and to be re-pumped back to the fountain.

 

 

Filtrific S5 In-Wall Skimmer

The S5 In-Wall Skimmer is designed for use with fountains where the water level is above the elevation of the Filtered Pump Vault’s Intake Port. The wall skimmer is designed to be placed in a 8” or wider concrete wall and includes a removable faceplate.


For use with elevated pools

Bottom-Draw

By installing a bottom draw on a fountain, debris is pulled from the bottom of the water feature in conjunction with the surface, ultimately resulting in a cleaner water feature.

Water is drawn from the bottom of the pond to replace the water being pumped out of the Filtered Pump Vault. Submerged debris is then collected in a Filtered Pump Vault's Filter Basket or Remote Filter Skimmer Basket.


 

Discharge Devices

As an optional accessory to a Berkey Fountain System, the Jet Flow Cap can either provide an underwater bubble effect or a surface spray effect.
