Got one for £25 last year, used it to clean out an old loft and now using it to clear up lots of wood shavings and earth while drilling out broken fence posts, also used it to clean up some water - I've had my money's worth and it's still going strong, but the plastic fittings are pretty cheap quality and mine are a bit worse for wear but it's had a lot of abuse

Grabbed mine for £20 oops...
Totally agree with OP's description.
Very good vac for the price.
It's basic, but does the job well and you don't need to buy bags.
Mine has taken some abuse.

Can you use these things for emptying a water tank do you think?
You need ear plugs if thinking of using indoors. Its noise levels are really high.

Product claims to be suitable for liquids. On that basis the answer would be yes.
The capacity of the waste drum is 15l, so depending on the size of your water tank, you may be emptying the waste drum often.

I've not used mine for liquids at all, to date.

Do you mean a water tank in a loft? If so syphon it out with a length of hose.

Agree, it is painfully loud.

Rotating wheels allow easy movement.... Can't beat a rotating wheel :-)

Yeah i was planning on doing that but i need to get the nasty stuff out of the tank its full of verdigris and general nastiness burdturd and so on - i have a drill siphon you ken the type that fits on the end of a drill and pumps using a hose but i dinny want to suck up all the crudd as it might block the hose or worse the drill pump!

Don't need a pump, stick one end of the hose in the loo (in which case make sure it can't fall out!), or out an upstairs window and hold the other end of the hose in the tank and lower two or three coil of the hose into the tank so that they fill up with water, then put your thumb over the end to block it and pull the coils of hose out of the tank so the weight of water in them causes it to start syphoning when you remove your thumb.

Yeah i know how to do it dude but its a tank on the roof of a block of flats it supplies all 3 flats and its a favour for a friend so I dont want to make a mistake!

The lumps in the tank and grease (bearing in mind it hasnt been cleaned since 1963) will block the hosepipe thats why i was thinking of this machine as it has a wide pipe.

A garden hose aint gonna cut it unless i slop out the tank manually with a bucket first but to do that i need to drain it down and if i do that i risk sending the sheeeit down the pipes into the boilers in the flats below!

Check this nastiness i am not looking forward to it and that is just the top of the tank you havent seen the nastiness at the bottom of the tank and the folks in the block have been drinking this water for the last 40 years - nasty!

That's not what a "socket function" means.
But this doesn't have a socket function anyway, despite the description.

That vacuum is not going to hold a great deal of water so you'll be constantly emptying it. 15L is not a lot, and its wet capacity may be less. I'm not sure that would be any quicker or easier than bailing it out with a bucket, unless access above the tank is really tight. Maybe a vacuum might be easier than a bailer for the crud left in the bottom once you've nearly emptied it.

You'd need to keep the top of the vacuum's tank level above the water tank's water level, or the water might continue to syphon down the vacuum hose and overfill the vacuum, and spill or spray water everywhere, the vacuum will probably have a ball in it to block the motor inlet when it is full, but the weight of water in the hose might make it leak, or the hose fall out when the suction stops.

I'd syphon out as much water as possible first, you could make up a large box filter with lots of hose size holes in it to drop in the tank to filter the water before it gets to the hose (maybe made from that stiff square wire mesh panel you can get, or drill lots of ~10mm holes in an old bucket ). EDIT: or even use the cage of a bird peanut feeder as a filter

When I syphoned out my small expansion tank, the suction was strong enough to break up quite large flakes of crud that I was expecting to block the hose.

Yeah the roof is only a foot above the tank so bailing is a problem and there are no floorboards so any water spills will go straight onto the roof plasterboard and stain it and one loose step and i will be straight through the ceiling and into the flat below so I have to use a hose and motor outside the tankhouse!

Yeah i was thinking of draining down with a standard hose in the middle of the tank until it starts to hit 20-30 cms from the bottom and use this vacuum to hoover up the crudd then wash the tank out with dilute bleach the problem is all 3 feeds from this tank go to boilers so i cannot afford to have an air bubble so have to make sure the boilers are not used in the time i have to do the job and also the tank also feeds a secondary tank which supplies the cold water system and it will need cleaned to - it has the mains feed with usual ball and valve setup for the whole system.

Should be a tap-in of a job but it has to be planned and executed carefully to avoid any disasters!

If the tank house has roof access, then a vacuum with a drain outlet might be better than this one, so you could have someone turn it off and let the water out the bottom, without lifting the motor unit off.

Or a pond vac: basically a wet and dry vac with a non-return valve on the drain hose outlet, which turns itself off every 30 secs or so, so that the water and sludge runs out the drain hose by gravity.

Although, I guess there's serious hygiene issues with using something that's previously been in a pond.

Yeah i want to do it cheaply as its for other folks who dont have a lot of money old pensioners but i found a Henry wet and dry vac in the hall cupboard for the block of flats so might give that a go!

Thanks for the info I used to look after a swimming pool and we had an automated pool scrubber i think it has the same setup as the pond filter motor and there is one on Freecycle at the mo so looking at that I can always strip and rebuild most things into other devices - Living up here in Orkney and in Slovakia for 6 months of the year they reuse everything nothing gets thrown out unlike here in the uk - my house in Slovakia has a solar powered setup that uses a Russian Sub battery the size of a shed lol!

Ta for the info!
Hoots mon!
