Hozelock Pond Vacuum

Hozelock Pond Vacuum At last the largest equipment manufacturer have launched their own Pond Vacuum. Hozelock are famous for the quality products and their new pond vacuum continues this run of success. The New Hozelock Pond Vac is a compact and lightweight pond vacuum for quickly cleaning and removing waste from smaller ponds with a minimum of effort. The Pond Vac is supplied with two different suction nozzles: ‘wide’ for large areas and ‘narrow’ for small corners, both of which can be stored on the handle. The water is sucked up through the nozzle by a high pressure but low wattage motor, which has chopping blades fitted to allow removal of large waste matter. The water passes up the handle which is made up from 4 x 0.4m sections allowing the reach of the vacuum to be adjusted. The handle position can be adjusted to ensure a comfortable operation. The water finally exits via the handle, which has a transparent section for viewing the waste disposal, through 3m of flexible hose. All water and waste is removed from the pond to ensure that no harmful polutants are returned. A motor power of only 80 watts, this is one of the least expensive motorised vacuums to run.

Easy to use - we even throw in a FREE discharge bag and a pair of long pond gloves
