Thank you for selecting the Atlantic Fountain Basin Kit. Before using this kit please take a moment to review this manual.
The above diagram shows the proper installation of the discharge fittings and valve when used with the FB3200 Fountain Basin and Tidal Wave Pumps. Discharge fittings are included for connection of Tidalwave FP Series and MD Series Pumps.
THIS PLUMBING KIT IS INTENDED FOR USE WITH THE FB3200 AND FB4600 FOUNTAIN BASINS WHEN INSTALLING ONE DECORATIVE ITEM. IF INSTALLING MULTIPLE DECORATIVE ITEMS, THE FBKIT3 IS RECOMMENDED.
6’ of ¾” non kink tubing is included in this kit. Tubing must be cut to length on site based on the requirement of the installation. Begin by installing one end of the tubing to the barbed outlet of the ball valve. Loop the tub- ing into the second plumbing channel and cut it to the desired length. Insert the barbed end of the ¾” elbow into the open end of the tubing.
Place the decorative item (Urn, column, or drilled boulder) on the fountain basin and position directly over the ¾” elbow. Run the ¾” PVC standpipe (not included) through the decorative item and into the socket end of the ¾” elbow. Seal the open- ing around the standpipe with the supplied standpipe sealant. Standpipe sealant is an EPDM based product that will remain pliable and can be reused.
Atlantic’s Pro Series Fountain Basins have a recessed pocket that allow 1½” conduit sleeve to be installed within the radius of the basin. This feature allows access to the pump cord and low voltage wiring when surrounding the basin with pavers or other hardscape materials. A 1½”cord stopper is included to plug the top of the sleeve to prevent gravel and other debris from entering the conduit.
