The intake screens on turbine pumps are very small, intended for use in basically clean water. As a result they can quickly clog in a wastewater application. Some filtered vaults have been created to help resolve this issue. However, those vaults are very expensive, very difficult to service and quite frankly they don't filter that well either. The Sim/Tech No-Vault is an extremely less expensive and easier option. Installed in the pump chamber it filters finer than the intake screen on the pump, while offering open areas 30 times or more than the pump intake screen.

How does it work?
The sealing washer is installed between the pump discharge and the threaded adapter of your discharge pipe.
This sealing washer seals the top of the No-Vault where the discharge pipe and pump power cord exit. It also keeps the No-Vault attached to the pump.
The sealing washer slides up and down inside of the sealing pipe that is in the top fitting of the No-Vault which allows the No-Vault to work for many different height pumps.
