The new energy efficient 1.5 H.P.
motor is made with high quality German made components. In suction
tests, Matala Pond Vac II is four times more powerful
than its competition with a suction lift 5’ above water.
Also known as the “Muck Buster”, the
vacuum easily removes algae, sludge, dead plants, leaves and even small
pebbles up to 3/8” in diameter.
The auto fill and drain cycles allow
for water to fill the vacuum canister, then simply discharge water into
garden beds. The on/off cycle is approximately 40 seconds vacuum and 20
seconds drain out. During the vacuum cycle the holding tank fills with
dirty water. Once it is full the motor will turn off automatically. The
dirty water will start to drain out the drain hose to the garden or yard
drains. When it is empty, it turns itself back on automatically and
continues to vacuum. Use the optional mesh bag to capture coarse debris
before releasing the dirty water to the garden or yard drain. The dirty
pond water is great for your garden plants! Do not return dirty
water back to the pond. In this way you can use the vac to make
monthly water changes. Safe for use in fish ponds and water gardens.
The Muck Buster Vacuum II is perfect
for hobbyist ponds up to 3000 gallons. The holding tank is approximately
4.5 gallon capacity. The 5 extension tubes are approximately 15 inches
long each and can reach depths up to 6 feet. The suction hose is 16 feet
long and the drain out hose is 8 feet long.
