Product Description

The Custom Pro Heavy Duty Reservoir Basin with Grate is a reliable solution for construction of water features. Extremely durable, it requires no additional support for fountains, bubblers or other features weighing under 50 pounds. We recommend adding support blocks under the grate's center for any feature that weighs over 50 pounds. With cinder blocks (for example) positioned beneath, the grate can support up to 1,000 pounds.

The included 2.5 inch thick grate comes with a pre-cut corner for easy pump access. It makes cleaning, pump flow adjustments and seasonal weather care easier. The fountain basin includes a fine 1/4 inch mesh screen to keep debris out.  Made in the USA!

Note: The 48" model must be shipped on a pallet by truck due to its size and requires a quote for additional shipping.

Product Reviews

  1. Well Constructed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 18th 2020

    This is a very well constructed heavy duty basin. I was impressed in how the components fit together. The grate was especially impressive and I'm glad a filter screen was included, but one might want to consider an addition screen on top before you add pebbles/rocks to cover the screen. I recommend including some instructions with the basin. Initially, it wasn't clear what size hole I needed to dig. I eventually found a website that explained a process that included getting sand, leveling, the basin, and adding the cinder blocks for very heavy pieces.
