Vacuum Cleaner VS Tracker Bar Pump
By Brian Thornton

Bruce Jones in Digest: 96.07.26 asked:

I've tried it both ways, with the vacume first then the pump. I pulled out the filter screen and low & behold, More crud the vac failed to pull up. While the vacume cleaner can move a large volume of air, it cannot provide the short concentrated burst of air needed to really knock stuff loose. Hope this answers your question.
