About Muck-Vac

Q. How does it work?
A. It is a simple system which uses the water pressure from a
standard garden hose to create a suction and vacuum the muck.

Q. Where does the muck and waste go?
A. The muck and waste is vacuumed up the telescopic pole and discharged to waste right out the end of the discharge hose, which we provide. You can allow it to go into a bucket, or right onto the lawn, garden or a deck drain.

Q. Does it put any water into the pond?
A. No, no water goes into the pond. The water is used purely for
creating the suction. However, some water will be displaced from the pond, along with the muck and waste. It will definitely lower the water level.

Q. Will it pick up pebbles and small leaves?
A. Yes, the higher the water pressure the better the system will
operate as far as sucking up small pebbles and leaves.

Q. How can I tell if I have 50psi water pressure?
A. You really can’t tell without buying a special gauge, but 50psi
is usually standard.

Q. What if for some reason it doesn’t work for my application?
A. We offer a no hassle warranty. We ask that you send it back to
us and we refund your money when it is returned.

The Wayne 1/2 HP portable pump boosts water pressure by as much as
40 lbs. Item #10945 (1-800-221-0516).]

Q. To what length does the telescopic pole extend?
A. Extends to 6 feet.

Q. How long and how wide is the discharge hose?
A. It comes with a 10 foot discharge hose that is 1-1/4 inches wide and there
is also a hose adaptor included so that you may add additional hose lengths.
