The Oase PondoVac 3 is a powerful versatile vacuum cleaner that can be used to clean garden ponds, swimming pools or natural pools. It can also be used as a high performance wet vacuum cleaner in the home. It offers sufficient power and the required accessories, in order to free garden ponds and pools of all debris. 

The unit is very easy to move around the home and garden thanks to its transport wheels and adjustable handle, you can move your PondoVac 3 quickly and with little effort. 

The PondoVac 3 has a 1600w motor producing powerful suction power and achieves water movement of up to 4000 l/h, depending on the operating conditions; obviously water filled with debris would move much slower. The suction power works down to 2.1m depth, allowing the cleaning of even the deepest ponds. 

In order to prevent any pause or delay in cleaning the two cylinders of the same size in the two-chamber system fill and empty simultaneously, in an alternating fashion. This enables non-stop suction. The cleaning hose has a transparent section in order for you to check for blockages and ensure it is working correctly.

  • Some large items like aquariums, ponds and pond liners will have an additional charge of £45.00 to help offset the cost of a pallet delivery.
  • Orders containing a physical gift card will have an additional charge of £2.45 to cover the cost of materials and delivery (digital gift cards are a free alternative).
  • Orders to highlands, islands and Northern Ireland may incur an additional delivery charge displayed at checkout this is based on the postal code provided. DPD provides a list of postal codes which have additional surcharges. Some of these post codes may also take 2 working days to arrive, even on express. Pallet deliveries cannot be sent to these post codes.

We only ship to the UK and cannot ship internationally.

We aim to dispatch items that are currently in stock on the same working day if they are ordered before 2.45 pm (excluding Bank Holidays). Orders after 3pm will be dispatched the following working day, unless it fits any of the below criteria:

  • Orders containing live plants will take up to 2 weeks to arrive. We take a week's worth of customer orders and then inform the plant farms of the specific quantities we need to fulfil that week's order to avoid wastage.
  • Pallet orders containing large items like big aquariums will take additional time to arrive as they are sent by a third party. These orders will NOT be dispatched until we have been in touch to arrange a delivery date, this is to ensure someone is available at your address to sign for the delivery. Deliveries will generally be delivered ‘curb side’ within the terms of the agreement we have with our couriers so you will need to make arrangements to transfer larger items into your home yourself. Unfortunately, our drivers are not insured to transfer the aquarium into your home.
  • Physical gift cards and items from the gift shop (such as clothes, towels etc) are sent with 1st Class Royal Mail. Delivery usually takes 1-2 working days, though in rare cases and orders placed closer to public holidays (Christmas, Father’s day, Mother’s day etc.) may be longer.
