Frequently Ask Questions:


Q. How does it work?
A. It is a simple system which uses the water pressure from a
standard garden hose to create a suction and vacuum the muck.

Q. Where does the muck and waste go?
A. The muck and waste is vacuumed up the telescopic pole and discharged to waste right out the end of the discharge hose, which we provide. You can allow it to go into a bucket, or right onto the lawn, garden or a deck drain.

Q. Does it put any water into the pond?
A. No, no water goes into the pond. The water is used purely for
creating the suction. However, some water will be displaced from the pond, along with the muck and waste. It will definitely lower the water level.

Q. Will it pick up pebbles and small leaves?

A. Yes, the higher the water pressure the better the system will
operate as far as sucking up small pebbles and leaves.

Q. How can I tell if I have 50psi water pressure?

A. You can buy a water pressure gauge or call your local water department. (see note below)

Q. How deep can the Muck Vac go?
A. The Muck Vac should be good down to about 3ft of depth. Any deeper and the Vac will not do a great job. Also depending on the PSI of the garden hose may not work at all.

Q. Does the Muck Vac work for ponds that have rocks at the bottom?
A. The Muck Vac was originally designed for pools and spas so naturally this unit will work better on smooth services but with greater pressure it works well for most.

Q. What if I have more than 50psi water pressure?
A. The Muck Vac will work much better. 50psi is the bare minimum to work and those that have over 50psi find that the Muck Vac does an even better job. We recommend 60 psi or above.

Q. How long and how wide is the discharge hose?

A. It comes with a 10 foot discharge hose that is 1-1/4 inches wide and there
is also a hose adapter included so that you may add additional hose lengths.

Q. Is this a new item on the market and what has your experience been with the Muck Vac system?

A. Muck Vac's have been on the market for many years and we have successfully sold them for over 11 years. In that time we have sold over 5,000 units and counting.

Q. How wide is the brush head?

A. The vac brush head is about 6" wide



Note:

* Requires a bare minimum of 50psi of water pressure to work. We recommend 60 psi or above for best performance.
* No Returns on this item once used. Please check water pressure before purchasing to avoid disappointment.

*We cannot stress enough that you need to have water pressure of 50 psi or greater (we recommend 60+). Without the proper pressure its like a car without an engine.

Great product! We had no issues figuring out to put this together it operate it and it works great! We were conferring a much more expensive solution to removing the algae and leaves from the bottom of our koi pond but decided to give this a try. We are more than pleased.
Pros:None
Cons:None

Muck Vac by Odyssey Works as stated, may want to think about buying additional 10 foot hose. as the 10 foot hose that comes with the unit sounds like it gives up plenty of discharge hose, but you need to figure that about five or six feet are needed to connect hose to vac head only giving you a few feet to find an area to discharge waste from pond.
Pros:Easy to setup
Simple to operate
Low cost
Cons:None

This product actually worked! I have a 300 gallon pond and fight algae all summer. I've been using a ShopVac to clean the sludge off the bottom. Meaning I vac for 20 seconds, then dump the water, over and over for an hour. With this MuckVac and my algaecide that clumps the green growth, I sweep it all up and water my nearest lilac bed at the same time. Thanks to Odyssey and 123Ponds for having a product that didn't ddisappoint. And at a great price.
Pros:None
Cons:None

I was skeptical to buy this product after reading reviews online but figured I would give it a try after testing the water pressure and coming up with 60 ps. It works as advertised. Not as powerful as a shopvaC but easy since there is no electricity. we have used it every month for the past 6 months and it has worked every time.
Pros:None
Cons:None

Muck vac worked great. A tip is to make sure you have enough pressure since this is not motorized. It worked well for us and worth the money.
