    Looks interesting....may be way easier than having to constantly empty the wet vac.

    Looks like a lot of trouble. On the other hand, if you only have to use it a couple times a year it may not be that bad.

    Happy ponding,

    It"s basically koiguys DIY vac, run to a filter container that has drains to allow the water to flow back into the pond. Just a bit fancier ( and I'm sure more $$$)

    the guy in the vid looks like he's vacuuming carpet. And I swear that machine looks like my hoover. LOL!

    If that thing worked as well as in the vid, everyone would have that machine and not the pondvac3.

    Yep. I guess since he can't see where he's vacuuming anyway, he doesn't care about stirring up the bottom.
