The new Matala Pond Vacuum II Plus has
a tank capacity of 6.6 gallons. 25% larger than the Pond Vac II. The
high quality German 1.5 HP motor has all the suction power of a 2 HP but
is more energy efficient.
The auto fill and drain cycles allow for water to fill the vacuum
canister, then simply discharge water into the garden or yard drains.
The on/off cycle is approximately 50 seconds vacuum and 25 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 Matala Pond Vacuum II Plus is
perfect for hobbyist ponds up to 4000 gallons. The holding tank is
approximately 6.6 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.

out hose with flapper valve is lower than bottom of tank.
- Use smallest vac head possible for the
job in order to prolong suction time.
