Anyone who owns a garden pond knows that a thorough clean of the water is essential, especially in spring, in order to prevent a summer algae bloom. Many make drastic - and fatal - attempts to move plants and animals, and let the water run out so that a perfect basic cleaning through can be done and the pond can be like new again. This is extremely damaging to the pond's ecosystem, because it not only removes the unwanted sludge and organic waste, but also all the necessary microorganisms and nutrients. The pond must then begin its life cycle from the beginning and benefit only from the unwanted algae that transforms the clean ornamental waters into a green liquid. The correct procedure is to gently clean the pond bottom with a sludge vacuum.
The right tool for this job is the Lakeside PowerPlus pond vacuum from DURAMAXX. With up to 1200W suction power and two suction levels, it swallows mud, old leaves and sludge from the pond floor. A 3-meter hose and a 1 meter long suction tube allow for a variety of working depths, sufficient for most small and large ponds. The sucked material can be either collected in the 30-liter tank, or transfered to the drain hose, which can be connected directly to flower beds or compost, where the extremely fertile mud will enrich the soil. For optimal cleaning results, the Lakeside PowerPlus pond vacuum has three working attachments: a broad bristle element for large-scale basic cleaning and a broad and a narrow attachment to clean corners, crevices or fish hideouts from the mud.
In order to expand the optimal uses of the device, the DURAMAXX vacuum cleaner is also suitable as a wet-dry vacuum cleaner for areas outside of ponds. For this it has its own dust filter bags, which can be used to replace the mud filter quickly and easily. For simple and easy movement the tank comes with four bottom rollers and a handle. The 3 meter long power cable means that a large work area can be covered by the pond vacuum cleaner.
As a device for outdoor use, the Lakeside PowerPlus is designed to be robust. Its tank is made of green lacquered stainless steel, which is not bothered by the arrival of hard objects. Other body parts are made of durable polypropylene.
