Why pay up to $400.00 for a "Pond Vac" with a 3 year warranty when you can get a "Shop Vac" of the same capacity for a little over $100.00 with a 5 year warranty?

I thought about that but how can you make one into a circulating vac? I would be emptying my shop vac every 5 minutes.

Do a little research on the Shop Vac website. The model that I use can actually be used as a pump, albeit at very low gph. A short cut that I sometimes use is to have my clean-out solids handling pump handy and just set it down into the Shop Vac canister and pump the canister out.

Us lazy people will come up with all sorts of ideas just to keep from moving.
