an easy vac for a small 250 gal. pond??
I have been hunting for a small vac for cleaning the250 gal. pond pond; the regular shop vac is too strong & pulls out way too much water & not easy to control with just the on-off switch on the container. Does anyone know of or have one that one can put in the pond bottom & has a on-off regulator on the vac pipe itself that one can regulate with a finger while it is in the pond? It doesn't necessarily have to strain out the debris & let the water back in the pond ... I'd prefer one that just sucks the bottom debris out with the water on to the ground; the shop vac does that, but it is too powerful & it sucks half the water out of the pond & probably some tiny fish along with the water!! I have looked at spa vacs but they suck debris into a small bag... too small.. & lets the water back into the tub. I sure would like a functional pond vac so I don't have to bucket & strain out the fish & then
empty the pond bucket by bucket & then use the shop vac to suck up the yucky bottom, flush it & repeat & then.... oh, my aching back!!
