I've used the pondovac 3 for about 4 years now. Before that, if we needed to do a complete pond drain and clean, we drained each of our three 1000 gallon ponds with a sump pump then got down in them and shovelled smelly muck into 5 gallon buckets which we then carried to our garden. That's a back breaking gruelling chore. So we got the pondovac. At first it was very frustrating to use and at times I really hated it. It would work for a while then hang up requiring a restart. Gravel and twigs would clog the intake. The drain hose bag would fill up and get very heavy. The vacuum adjustment on the hose handle leaked and reduced the vacuum power. OVer time we figured out a few things to make it easier. We don't put gravel or small rocks in our pond if we can avoid it. We no longer use the drain hose and bag but let the pondovac drain out in the grass then just rake it up. This makes a huge difference in avoiding restarts (maybe the pondovac 4 doesn't have this problem?). I sealed up the vacuum adjustment on the hose handle with duct tape as it was sucking air. I also switch to clean foam filters about half way through doing the ponds. when they get covered with algae performance drops off. I"ve also gotten good at pulling the intake tube off the handle to check for rocks and sticks clogging them. now I appreciate the labor saving the pondovac provides. When we get down to the last few gallons of water in the pond I start running clean water into the ponds to dilute the muck, so it's pretty clean when we're done and we no longer haul buckets of stuff up out of the ponds. Spare parts are ridiculously high....foam filters for $20 each??? I buy the overly large black foam shop vac filters at home depot for a few bucks.Read more ›

This product is expensive enough that people seem to expect a miracle. You won't find it here, but it will cut down considerably on the effort to keep a pond in good working order. The documentation that comes with the device is horrible, obviously never having been subjected to any testing on real people whatsoever. The most important omission is that they left out any mention of how the cleaner works, resulting in a whole bunch of nasty reviews by people who just didn't get what was going on. So here's what's going on:

The cleaner has two holding tanks inside. When you start it, what I'll call Holding Tank One is in use. Water and fine debris is lifted from the bottom of the pond into the holding tank, with the vacuum pump drawing air out of the top of the tank in the manner customary with wet/dry vacuums.

When a float switch in the tank reaches a certain level, it triggers an unique sequence: The vacuum action stops dead in its tracks for a few seconds (leading to all the negative reviews). Two valve switches occur. The first one switches the vacuum pump over to Tank Two, currently empty. The second one opens a port allowing the water to flow out of Tank One. The pump goes back into action, now emptying water and debris into Tank Two while Tank One drains out the exhaust hose. When Tank Two is full, the cycle repeats.

Without this cycling, using this device would be like using any wet/dry vacuum: In less than a minute, the tank would be full and it would be time to shut down and manually empty it. The two-tank scheme lets them approach continuous up time without the user having to tip the vacuum over ever to empty it. This would work perfectly if they bothered to tell people what was going on.

I do not generally write reviews but I am compelled to here. I just used the Pondovac 4 for the first time and it does a very credible job at a very difficult task.
My pond is 4000 gallons and 3.5' at its deepest. The Pondovac design is ingenious and the suction is strong even at my maximum depth.
Yes, it will clog at times or the float valves may get hung up requiring a brief (just seconds) shut down, but, lets face it folks, look what you are asking this thing to do. Wet leaves and twigs are not so easy to vacuum up.
Its a pond and ponds will never be squeeky-clean. Mine, though, has never been cleaner than it is now and I'm thrilled with this product.
My only regret is that I didn't buy this sooner and before spending a lot of time and money trying to "invent" my own pond vacuum by various means.
One thing.........at 1800 watts, this has a big motor that really demands a good/clean circuit and a heavy 12awg extension cord if one is needed. Keep the cord as short as possible to minimize any voltage drop which will hurt performance and may damage the motor.
Its a little pricy compared to the others buy in my opinion worth every cent.

I have a quite large koi pond (16ft diameter, 4.5ft deep) with an artificial river and waterfall. Living in south florida with lots of sunshine, no pond netting (I don't care for the look), and a koi pond nestled in between a ton of oak trees has made this pond quite a headache.

Previously to clean the pond it took 2-3 people, 2 or 3 days, using a semi-dangerous, "semi-trash" pump. This method was the best I could come up with giving the large amount of acorns, leaves, and silt on the bottom of the pond. Needless to say this cleanup effort occurred twice a year at best.

Having just purchased this product (from amazon) and used it I have been incredibly impressed. It does not suck up acorns or leaves well, but with the included attachments and watching what you are doing you can avoid them quite easily. The duel chamber vacuum design "clogged" only once during the 2 hours of use. This required only a quick dis-assembly and was remedied in less than 3-4 minutes.

I've switched to a ton of expensive chemicals to maintain chemistry and algae control. The last thing i wanted was to suck a ton of water out during cleaning (as was previously necessary). This unit did an exceptional job of not stirring up the water badly and removed and extraordinary large amount of silt for the amount of water removed...

Con's: #1 The included netting for recycling water is WAY to small... In fact, it's pretty much worthless. If recycling water is a necessity you truly need some sort of dedicated system.
#2 The duel chamber/float system works quite well... But not perfectly. about every 7-8 minutes BOTH floats would get stuck in the up position preventing use.
