Thank you for purchasing an EasyPro Eco-Series Pump Vault. Following are a few simple instructions to help you during the installation process. These vaults are ideal for pumps up to 6000 GPH.
STEP ONE - PUMP ACCESS & PLACEMENT
The Eco-Series pump vault allows you easy access to your pump for routine maintenance. Position the pump vault anywhere in your reservoir. The reservoir must be 24" deep, flat and level.
Filling in the empty space in the reservoir can be done in a couple ways. First is to fill the entire area in with rock. Depending on the size rock used, the area of the reservoir will end up being approximately 60% rock and 40% water. Since the reservoir needs to hold enough water to adequately supply the waterfall and stream area without exposing the pump, the more water you can get into ther reservoir the better! The second way to fill in the reservoir is to create false voids in that area. The best way to do this is by using EasyPro Res-Cubes. These cubes stack together to create large voids allowing maximum water in the reservoir. Tests show approximately 80% water or more versus the 40% if filling with rock. Res-Cubes are available from your local EasyPro distributor.
STEP TWO - RESERVOIR CONSTRUCTION • GRAVEL
Locate the pump vault anywhere in the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with large stones. The larger the stones, the more void space hence the more water the pit will contain. You can top off the reservoir with smaller stones if you prefer.
STEP THREE - RESERVOIR CONSTRUCTION • CUBES
Locate the pump vault anywhere in the reservoir. Stack the reservoir cubes around the pump vault. Top off the reservoir with rock and stones to blend into the landscaping. Use a piece of flagstone to cover the pump vault.
