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.

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.

In a post, I recently reported that in building my new 1,400 gallon pond and edging it with flat stones and mortar, that it had shortly after rained and carried some (a lot) of silt into the pond bottom.
I didn't want to agitate the water and get the silt suspended and use my water pump and filter to try to filter out the fine, abrasive particles, so I just purchased a pond vacuum. An OASE PondoVac 57347 to be exact. Lightly used on Ebay for about $130. It seems to be just what I need to remove the silt now and for vacuuming up any debris later on not captured by the skimmer or pond pump and filter, as well as algae later on.
I found one previous post and the member raved about the product.
What do others do to remove muck, etc?
The last several ponds I had used sponge filters and I simply removed and washed out sponges every few weeks. 3 of 5 at a time with my "old school" Becket X-5s.

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.
