VACUUMING AND CLEANING TIPS (download
1. If your pond, etc. is very dirty, remove large debris
with a swimming pool style leaf rake to avoid clogging inside
the Muck Vac head, body, pole or discharge hose.
2. Holding on to the garden hose and Muck Vac telepole will
prevent hoses from tangling.
3. Discharge debris onto your lawn or garden area. If this
is not desirable and your discharge hose is not long enough
to reach a patio drain, use the Muck Vac Hose Adapter included
with your Muck Vac System and attach another length of 1-1/4”
swimming pool hose (available at most Swimming Pool Supply
or Home Improvement stores).
4. If your pond or fountain is draining to quickly and you
do not want it to because of fish, you may do one of two methods.
FIRST: You may break the suction of the Muck Vac by lifting
the head out of the water, and hold it over the pond or fountain.
(NOTE:When you lift the head out of water the suction action
stops and the waste water hose will flow back into pond unless
you hold telepole vertically.)The water supply will exit from
vac head until the pond or fountain is full again. In order
to start cleaning again, insert Vac Head back into body of
water. You might need to PRIME Muck Vac again in order to
start power siphon action again.
SECOND: Shut water supply from garden hose off and then you
may break the suction of the Muck Vac by lifting the head
out of the water. (NOTE: The dirty water inside teletpole
and discharge hose will flow back into pond if you do not
keep vac head ABOVE drainage area or patio drain.)Disconnect
garden hose add more water, then proceed to PRIME and clean
again when pond or fountain is full again.
