Nonstop, Power-Cyclone Pond Vacuum

Published on March 29, 2016

Matala Water Technology has introduced a new, continuous pond vacuum for use in large ponds.

The contractor-grade Power-Cyclone vacuum has two motors: a suction motor that vacuums up to 1,500 gph, and an internal discharge motor with 0.5 horsepower. The system is robust enough to discharge your dirty water under pressure up to 18 feet in elevation. The flow rates oweb_Power-Cyclone Vacuum Hi Resf the motors are balanced, so the vacuum job is continuous without interruption. The 6-foot extension pipe combines with 26 feet of suction hose, allowing for easy handling during even your biggest pond vacuum jobs.

The Power-Cyclone vacuums debris into its 13-gallon holding tank, where large solids are collected into a pre-filter bag. The dirty water is then pumped out by the internal 0.5-horsepower sludge pump. The system includes 32 feet of exhaust hose, which allows the wastewater to be pumped to any elevation up to 18 feet high. The total working distance is more than 60 feet. An optional, secondary exhaust hose can be added to the end of the discharge hose to gain an additional 32 feet, if needed. (Note: Do not return dirty water to the pond. Pump dirty water to your garden or proper drainage system. Heavy-duty wheels perform well over rough terrain, and the tote handle makes maneuvering easy.)
