Vacuums & Maintenance

Over the course of a season, your pond will accumulate debris and organics such as leaves, grass clippings, uneaten fish food, and fish waste. The filtration system should remove most of this debris, but the rest will break down into muck and sludge. Periodic cleanings and general maintenance are inevitable. You'll find a complete line of vacuums and heavy duty gloves for maintenance.

Vacuums

Remove organic debris and dirt particles from the pond using a vacuum. Available in a variety of models from a small siphon vacuum to a large 2-motor professional grade model.

Maintenance

Periodic cleanings and maintenance in and around the pond will eventually be required. Find shoulder length gloves, weed and algae rakes, and plant pruning tools here.

Matala Pond Vac II

Uses a single-chamber suction system. This means that the vacuum fills with material removed from the pond and then automatically shuts off via an internal float and drains via gravity. The vacuum will typically fill in 20-40 seconds and then discharge in 20-30 seconds. This type of vacuum is only suitable for small applications and will require some patience due to the on/off cycle.

The Matala Pond Vac II, also known as the MuckBuster, offers a 2 H.P. motor made with the highest quality German manufactured components. Suction tests were four times more powerful than its competition with a suction lift 5' above water.

  • Collection container with motor casing and 16 ft cable.
  • 8 ft. discharge hose with integrated blocking flap.
  • 16 ft. suction hose

Matala Power Cyclone Pond Vacuum

The suction motor will vacuum up to 1500 gph. The internal discharge motor is 1 HP and is capable of discharging your dirty water under pressure up to 18 feet in elevation. The motors are balanced in flow rate so 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. 4 different size vacuum heads are included. Debris is vacuumed into the 13 gallon holding tank whereby large solids are collected into a pre-filter bag first. The dirty water is then pumped out to waste by the action of the internal 1 HP sludge pump. 32 ft of exhaust hose allows the waste water to be pumped to any elevation up to 18 feet high. Total working distance is over 60 feet. An optional secondary exhaust hose can be added onto the end of the discharge hose to gain an additional 32 ft if needed.

This innovative “Power” vacuum is very versatile and can be used in a variety of applications.
