this idea stems from seeing a pool service company use a commericial port a vac during spring start-ups.
used pool pumps are easy to come by free as are cannister filters.
you need to rewire the pump to 115 vac. buy a set of gator quick couples, a couple pieces of iron and a hand truck.
i use the gators on all of my pumps so i can use any suction and discharge hose on any pump.
