Environmentally safe pond cleaning.

Got muck or algae that’s starting to kill your pond and make it ugly? MuckSuckers has the perfect, environmentally-friendly solution.

We will suck up the muck and restore your pond to its natural, pristine condition.

Sediment removal that works.

Muck creates a deteriorating cycle in a pond. Sediment collects at the bottom of a pond leads to degradation  of the pond’s ecosystem.

Harmful bacteria can grow out of control until they literally suffocate the pond, possibly eventually even leading to a fishkill.

The pond maintenance solution!

MuckSuckers pumps the sediment out of your pond, removing those toxic gases and harmful nutrients. Your pond is left to its natural beauty!

  • No damaging pond liners.

Suck the Muck

Our extremely effective method of removing muck from your pond means you don’t have to drain it. We use pond water to our advantage, hydraulically removing muck from the bowl.

Reduce Costly Hauling

MuckSuckers can pump organic sediment to an inconspicuous location using our geotextile tubes. This greatly reduces costly hauling charges.

How to dredge – but not destroy – a pond

Dredging a pond is a damaging process. All water and all wildlife must be removed before the heavy equipment is brought in – and heavy equipment means felled trees and tattered shorelines. Essentially, dredging is like saying goodbye to (or at best relocating)...

Pond stratification, or how a sick pond can become healthy
