The 871 Series WET-PAK submersible pump kit offers a unique alternative to the traditional above-floor submersible fountain pumping system by moving the pump and plumbing from plain view and into a flush mount, pre-fabricated, stainless steel pump pit. This reduces clutter on the fountain floor leaving your eyes to focus on the fountain feature, not the pumping system.
The WET-PAK also features a removable fibermat filter element that screens debris from the water, preventing clogging of the pump and piping. And to protect your investment in case someone enters the fountain, all WET-PAKS come with a fiberglass grating cover that can hold the weight of a person.
WET-PAK Pump Kits arrive at the job-site pre-assembled with pump, cord seal(s) and/or underwater junction box, discharge ball valve, drain fitting with plug, and 3/4” fitting for connection of fill piping. Once the plumbing and electrical connections have been made, and the fountain structure poured, the WET-PAK is ready for operation.
Control of the WET-PAK is typically handled by mounting a mechanical time clock or simple on/off switch in a convenient location near the fountain. Contact our office for order and price information on electrical controls. (NOTE: All power to the WET-PAK must be protected by a Class A ground fault interrupter device).
