The auto fill and drain cycles allow water to fill the vacuum canister, then simply discharge water into garden beds. When it is empty, it turns itself back on automatically and continues to vacuum. Use the optional mesh bag to capture coarse debris before releasing the dirty water to the garden or yard drain. The dirty pond water is great for your garden plants! Do not return dirty water back to the pond. In this way you can use the vac to make monthly water changes.
5 extension tubes are each approximately 15" and can reach depths up to 6'
Open yellow ring on handle for extended suction time. Close for increased suction power.
Place vacuum tank up high so that drainage hose is lower than bottom of tank
Use smallest vac head possible for the job in order to prolong suction time
Periodically check the flapper valve on end of drain hose for obstructions and good movement
