Gravel vacuum: (n.)

It is made of clear, a size of versatile air line tubing related to a wider part of inflexible tubing. Start the vacuum by holding the inflexible finish of the tubing upright beneath the water, and shifting it up and down (it’s possible you’ll want to do that vigorously). Make positive to have the different finish positioned in a bucket to catch the water.
