PORTAVAC

Save $100 on the PORTAVAC & $50 on the

Mini Vac II with discount code: "YouTube Portable"

The PORTAVAC by Advantage Manufacturing is a self-contained portable filtration system that can be used for a great many swimming pool applications. The best way to describe it to you is that the PORTAVAC is like having your pool equipment on a dolly that you can move around.

 

Here are some specs on the PORTAVAC directly from the manufacturer:

 

1.5 HP self-priming pump with oversized trap

150 Sq. Ft. cartridge filter

35' of 12 gauge insulated cord

Heavy duty tubed tires

Rugged 0.090 wall steel

Powder coated finish

On/Off switch with built-in GFI

 

I wanted to highlight some uses for the PORTAVAC. First, lets make a distinction from the closest portable Vacuum type. This is not at all like the Hammer-Head, Riptide Vac, or Power Vac. Those types of portable vacuums use a fine filter bag on top to trap debris and work off of a Deep Cycle Marine Battery attached to the cart. The limitation of these types of vacuums is that they only trap dirt and debris down to about 60 microns with the finest bag attached.

 

The PORTAVAC uses a 150 sq ft cartridge filter so it traps dirt and debris down to about 10 or 15 microns. This means that the PORTAVAC will pick up very fine dust, sand and algae dust where the other types of vacuums fail at this. You would use your standard pool vacuum head and a 1.5” pool hose attached to the PORTAVAC to pick up the dirt and debris. It is just like manually vacuuming from your pools existing filtration system.

 

You can order the PORTAVAC directly from Advantage Manufacturing. If you need the unit shipped to your location freight charges are $250 to $350. You can also pick up the PORTAVAC directly at Doheny's  Pool Supply and Leslie's Pool Commercial Division.  

The Advantage Manufacturing Mini Vac II helps protect the Main Filter in your pool from excessive dirt and debris building up and also keeps your pool looking and feeling cleaner. This system is ideal for pools, fountains, ponds, or any other water features that might occur a large amount of debris. Basically, all of the unclean and dirty water goes into the portable vacuum's filter cartridge and clean water is returned directly back into the source. This system may also be used as an auxiliary pump filtration system when the existing pump-filter is non-operational. This product is perfect for winterizing and draining pools and spas. It includes a 100 square foot cartridge filter and a 1 HP In-Ground Pool Pump.
