    I always just used a big tube in my aquascapes to do water changes (python) can you do that for ponds but just vacuum?

    I purchased a Oase pond-o-vac 3 about 6 weeks ago due to cloudy water and poor visibility in my pond. I believe that was mostly due to the fact the builder didn't even rinse off the rocks before installation. I have struggled with that since. However, in one use of the vacuum my water is 100% better. I can now see to the bottom (4 feet) and have nothing but rave reviews for the product.

    COOL.
    I just ordered one for my pond.
    After I lined the edges with flat stones and mortar, it rained and carried some of the silt into the pond.
