Good but slow
My pond is 24x12x3 feet deep. I use this several times a year to clean out mulm & leaves. Added an extention to vac the bottom from the edge of the pond. Picks up small gravel like Pond Care plant media (Turface). In summer the outflow is good plant fertilizer. In fall, the leaves plug the strainer quickly. Overall, works well if you are not in a hurry.
Hardly a "new" item as e-maild 3-21-2014.
Replacement parts are available.

Good price, limited usefulness.
There is good news and bad. The good is the price, way below an electric vac. This vac does the job it's supposed to with limitations. It picks up lightweight debris without easily clogging. But it does not seem to have the power to lift heavier stuff such as twigs and dirt. It discharges a lot of water that has to have a place to run off without flooding the driveway or drowning nearby plants.
P.S.I wonder if your technical staff would be so good as to shed some light on a question I have: Can I maintain a few gold fish in a 250 gallon acquarium (pool) without having a source of electricity to run a filter or aerator? Just a yes or no would be sufficient. Bob

Just isn't effective as a vacuum.
Easy to put together, but as a vacuum, it just doesn't work in our 5 X 10 shallow pood. It takes so long to suck up anything, and I never did figure out what the big jug at the end of the tube was suppose to do. Maybe a video of how it is SUPPOSE to work would help. I just didn't think it was worth the price.

Expensive for what you get
My pond is 4 feet deep. It was difficult to handle at that depth and did not have enough strength to bring up much from the bottom. Uses too much water for too little results.
