Ask a Question
  • Is the water returned to the pool once vacuumed or does it sit in the pump area or discharged out?

    With the Pondovac 5, the water is sucked into the vacuum, filtered, and then pumped back out. If you put the end of the discharge hose into the pool you will return the water to the pool. If you put the end of the discharge hose in your yard or down a drain,  you will pump the water away from the pool and not return it to the pool.

  • I want to use this to remove sand and dirt from the bottom of my in-ground pool which has a depth of 6 feet. 1) how long is the pole? 2) the bag that captures debris looks like it has large holes, do you also offer bags with finer mesh to hold dirt vacuumed up.

    The Pondovac 5 comes with four 30-inch aluminum suction tubes and one clear one.

    The Pondovac 5 ship with two mesh bags.

    A large reusable mesh bag is connected inside the vacuum at the outlet of the suction hose and it catches the larger pieces that get sucked up. It has relatively large holes it allows you to easily remove the larger debris and dispose of it.
    Here is a picture of me holding this bag that attaches inside the unit. I took this picture at a factory training event. The colored beads were added to a test pool and allowed us to suck something up during the demonstration. I can confirm that the Pondovac 5 has a very strong suction motor.

    Anything that is too small and passes through this mesh bag will be pumped out by the 2nd pump that sits at the bottom of the vacuum. We call this a "trash pump". It is a heavy-duty pump that is designed to pump out the small pieces that make it through the 1st mesh bag. 

    A second mesh bag comes with the vacuum and it can be connected onto the outlet of the discharge hose. This bag has a VERY FINE mesh, and it traps all of the smaller pieces of debris that the trash pump discharges from the vacuum.
