    used my gutter vac for helping clear out a small fish pond of all the green **** ya get in them
    sucked a load out no probs including some if not most of his tadpoles he had put in it
    think i missed his fish as i did my best :specs and he was happy but i couldnt see his fish
    he wants me to do it in autumn again :thumbsup:
    i think if he doesnt see his fish before then this arrangement may change :rolleyes:

    eh i waited till my custy went away for a min took the motor off had a quick look and emptied the solids when finished job down his overgrown side garden where he had said i could let the dirty water out of my vac
    as it took loads of times to empty water out didnt see any tadpoles or fish but water shoots out of the emptying tube and was v.dirty so i had no chance of seeing any thing live or dead
    Alas when finishing cleaning out bottom of vac a couple of tadpoles had fallen r.i.p
    he showed me where he had put the frog spawn so kept well away and seen tadpoles swimming about after i had finished just didnt see any fish :eek:
