    I definitely would like one by Spring cleaning next year!
    I have been using a regular shop vac, and it works great, but fills up way too quickly!
    I'd like one with a discharge hose so I don't have to stop to empty the bucket

    Check Ebay for a good used one. Or contact another member here on this forum that has reported that they don't like to use theirs.................That'd be a win, win.

    There's always the chance that they don't like theirs cause it doesn't work (well or at all)

    I'm thinking of this one, but with only one review I'm not sure if I want to take the chance

    That's a continuous suction model.
    It doesn't stop to drain every 3 minutes or so like my cheap unit does.
    Oase is a good brand. Same as mine. But that one is pricey.

    I use Osae pond vacuum and I love it. Its the only way to get rid of some of the decayed biomass that accumulate at the bottom of the pond and between the rocks. I use it about four times a year for my 10X20 water garden in the Midwest.
