The Sludge Terminator the heavy duty Professional vacuum for ponds.

The Sludge Terminator offers a complete solution for removing sludge in ponds. The Sludge Terminator consists of a self-priming waste water pump with a flexible rubber impeller on a stainless steel trolley that sucks the water in through a special stone separator.

The pond water is sucked in through the pond vacuum . The water first enters the stone separator where heavier solids like substrate and stones will settle in the lower part to protect the pump.

The water (free of heavy solids) will travel to the outlet to the suction side of the pump with the flexible impeller. The dirty water exits the pressure side through a 40mm hose tail and can be transported to waste or garden or to a filter for further treatment.

The stone separator has a 4 inch screw cap for easy removal of these solids.
