VACUUMING AND CLEANING TIPS (download pdf)

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.
