Pump Wells - Essential to Vortex Filters.
What is a pump well? Well - (no pun intended) Well pumps are a necessity after a Vortex filtration system.
Pump wells return water from Vortex filters. That's the nuts and bolts!
Background: Vortex filtration systems are a cone based system. Each cone is merged in tandem one after another and takes water by gravity. Each vortex cone contains a different element of filtration. For example, it would be normal for the first Vortex to be a settling chamber for solids separation. The second chamber might have a bunch of brushes and bioflo in it. The third cone would be loaded with Reticulated Open Cell foam for final polish.....Then the pump well....Why? Because the water needs to get back to the pond. And in most cases, after the Vortexes, that's an uphill proposition.
So the pump well takes water from the Vortex system and you put the pump at or in the Pump well.
And from there, the pump can push the water back to the pond, or it can send it through a series of additional water amendments such as a UV, or some other appliance.
The brick you see in the pictures are there to give you some persepective in size.
Here's the Standalone Pump Well. This is for folks who want water taken off the Vortex Filter and then returned straight to the pond. You get 2 pads for final water polishing, a 4" inlet, a 2" outlet to your pump (pump not included in this deal) and a bulkhead, valves and connectors.
