Pond sludge vacuum cleaner in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Sludge vacuum cleaner: the ideal cleaning tool for your pond
Owners of a garden pond or swimming pond are familiar with this problem, which is as bad as it is difficult to avoid: mud, leaves, algae, faeces and food residues from fish are deposited on the base of the pond over time and cause unsightly, sludge-like soiling. If this runs rampant, you lose the ecological balance of your pond, which above all impairs the health of the fish and other animals living in the water. Fortunately, there is a highly effective device that you can easily keep your pond clean: the sludge vacuum cleaner.
Buy a sludge vacuum cleaner online with Maxi Zoo
If you want to buy a sludge vacuum cleaner, you are at the right place at Maxi Zoo. In our online shop you will find various powerful vacuum cleaners that will clean your pond in an instant. All models are equipped with a powerful motor and – depending on the model – have three to five suction nozzles with different functions. All appliances are also suitable for relatively deep garden ponds: the suction depth of the sludge vacuums you get at Maxi Zoo is at least two metres.
A sludge vacuum works like a vacuum cleaner. During cleaning, a suction and pumping process is first set in motion; then plant residues and sludge are sucked in. Thanks to their performance, the sludge vacuum cleaners available at Maxi Zoo remove even fine and stubborn dirt particles. The extracted sludge can then be easily disposed of via a drain hose, for example on the compost. If the deposits show no signs of rot, the extracted sludge mass can also be used directly as a fertiliser for beds.
Before you use a sludge vacuum cleaner to clean your pond, however, one thing is of the utmost importance: if fish live in the pond, you should first make them safe. Since such a temporary relocation means considerable stress for the animals, pond cleaning using sludge vacuum cleaners should only take place once a year. In the interim, you can remove coarse dirt such as leaves and larger algae with a hand net.
An alternative to the sludge vacuum cleaner: the skimmer
Instead of ordering a sludge vacuum cleaner, you could also buy a skimmer as an alternative. The small, floating filter systems continuously clean a pond surface of up to 25 m2 without you having to take action yourself. Skimmers remove fine dirt such as pollutants, leaves and other coarse plant residues from the water. Another advantage: skimmers are also suitable for small to medium-sized swimming pools.
