The “MUCK VAC” is another innovative product designed to aid the back yard pond keeper as well as fountain and water feature owners. The product vacuums out dirt and debris without causing turbidity so that fish and plants do not have to be removed during cleaning. It has no moving parts and works simply by harnessing the power of ordinary garden hose pressure.
Utilizing the laws of fluid dynamics and a standard garden hose, Muck Vac Cleaning System is an easy and versatile vacuum cleaner for ponds and spas, etc.
Muck Vac Cleaning System is easy to use and assemble. Operated by the existing water pressure in most residentail faucets (50 psi is usually standard), Muck Vac can suck up most muck and waste from the bottom of any pond or spa. In fact, higher water pressure can create more vacuum power.
Muck Vac Cleaning System will not cause turbidity in pond. No need to displace fish or plants. Muck and waste is vacuumed up the telescopic pole and discharged to waste right out the end of the discharge hose. You can allow it to go into a bucket or right on the lawn, garden or a deck drain. Muck Vac do not put any water into the pond or spa, the water from the garden hose is purely for creating the suction under water. However, some water will be displaced from the pond or spa along with the muck and waste.
The Principle of Equilibrium at Work:
Existing water pressure from residential home moves the water into the garden hose at a high velocity, this velocity is further accelerated by the Muck Vac power head. The increase in the velocity of flow of water corresponds to a decrease in the water pressure in the region of acceleration. When using Muc Vac in a pool of water, as long as the faucet is open, a difference in water pressure is maintained, and water in the pool is constantly rush toward the region of low pressure to maintain an equal pressure or an equilibrium (in the Muck Vac brush). This physical property creates the suction need to remove muck and waste from the bottom of pond or spa.
Complete system includes:
- Muck-Vac power head
- Vac head with brush
- Telescoping pole (extend to 6 ft)
- Vacuum hose (10 ft discharge hose, w/ hose adapter for adding addtional hose lengths
