"Do recommed end it."

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. That said, the results were excellent.

"I just can't use it."

Works really well and is very powerful. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. It was on low so I put it on high and found that the unit would be ok. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. I'm really happy I bought one of these.

"Great glass cleaner."

5 hours even adding water back to tanks. Also equipped come with a lot of accessories,. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well.

"Cleans well and quickly."

I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too! I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. You won't go wrong with this product.

"Love this scraper."

Definitely worth the money spent on the product. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. A little tricky with the hand pump. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. THE ABSOLUTE BEST PART IS THE SUCTION POWER AND TIME SAVING.

Norgail Aquarium Glass Cleaner Orange Final Thoughts

"Took him an hour."

Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water. If this company ever needs a spokesperson I am their man. This is my second review but since this is a great product I'll do it again. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I would recommend this to my friends. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze.

"Best effect."

One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. The scrapper will float if detached from the magnet. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Works really well and is very powerful. No snails or shrimp would stand a chance. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

Pawfly Final Thoughts

"I still like it."

Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water. Going to purchase the larger size in the future. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy.

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I bought this cleaner for my husband and we got this in 15 days before. 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. If you do not mind a rough ride, then perhaps you can try this one. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily.
