Allows you to easily recycle the pond water.

  1. Simply waste the vacuumed pond water & sludge into a large tub or wheelie bin. Let it settle for an hour to clear.
  2. Return the solids-free, now clear, water back into the pond with the Pond Vac, effectively meaning zero water loss.
  3. Place the remaining solids from the vessel into the garden as superb fertilizer.
  4. Alternative: Tie a large laundry netting bag to the end of the waste pipe. Hang it over the edge of the pond. When the bag is full, spread the waste on the garden.

A review from UK "This vac is great, I use it also in my 15 foot above ground swimming pool, turn the hose back down the shaft so the water goes back in to the pool and fix with a cable tie a fine mesh bag to the end of the hose to catch the bits, works a treat!!"
