First of all and quite naturally we are going to feature 'Our Own' Pond Vacuum Kit on which the pump itself is based on the most favoured and reliable ITT Marlow - AG8 pump.
The actual heart of the vacuum is of course the pump itself, the power source . and for this we choose without any doubt to use the ITT Marlow AG8 .. this pump can really pull the filth and grime from the bottom of the pond without any effort ... Naturally as you would expect the water and sludge being lifted from the bottom of the pond is filtered out in a large filter basket contained in the front of the pump housing... this housing has a clear, easily removable, top which simply unscrews to enable the basket to be lifted out and emptied when it is full ... this of course prevents the fine grit and other sharp objects from being drawn in through the impeller where it could cause damage to the bearings and plates... The pump as we say is powerful enough to draw the debris, grime etc from the bottom of the pond without spreading it all over .. a good suction is essential to prevent this happening and the ITT Marlow AG8 can easily cope well with this drawing in the region of 2,000 gallons per hour.
The Waste water that flows through the pump contains millions of fine particles and we do not recommend that this water should be retuned to the pond - instead the waste water should be flushed to any surface water waste outlet where it can freely flow into the main sewerage system...
