Cleaning sludge from the bottom of a collection pit is neither easy nor fun. But the Pit Cleaner makes it bearable. An extended wand is attached to a pressure washer, with a minimum of 1,000 PSI. The pressure is channeled so that it creates a vacuum capable of suctioning mud and sludge from the bottom of a pit or even a pond. The sludge is deposited into a porous collection bag, mounted on a hand truck, where the water drains out and the sludge is allowed to dry for eventual disposal.
