This video shows a commercial sand change – 2 sand filters – 2,100 lbs each. These fliters are used for a large swimming facility. The pool contractor uses two Roll-n-Vac industrial extractors to suck the used sand out out the two large commercial sand filters. It takes just 2 hours to empty 4,200 lbs of sand from the filters. They then push the sand to the back and do backwash on the filters.
The Roll-n-Vac is a revolutionary professional pool service vacuum. A Roll-n-Vac® HD-2 Hydro-Extractor will make you more productive by saving you time.
The Roll-n-Vac is not only useful for a commercial sand change. The Roll-n-Vac® removes sand/media from a 300lb residential filter in about 5-6 minutes. In our testing we timed the Roll-n-Vac® vacuuming 200 lbs of sand/media in 3 minutes. (watch video). The best part of all is that the Roll-n-Vac® has deposited the old sand/media in the wheelbarrow for disposal.
Roll-n-Vac® is great on cleaning “Green Slimy Sludge” out of the bottom of drained pools when doing liner changes. The Roll-n-Vac® is so powerful it will vacuum “Green Slimy Sludge” from the bottom of the pool while it remains on the deck. That’s right, only you and the hose go down in the pool. The Roll-n-Vac® will move 20 gallons of “Green Slimy Sludge” into the wheelbarrow in 20 to 30 seconds. You will have to use your five gallon buckets for other tasks.
The Roll-n-Vac® doesn’t stop there it will help vacuum liners into place. Clean pool covers of leaves and water, vacuum or blow out lines when winterizing.
