"No spills and SO easy!"

I love this setup and how easy it was to use. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. I may modify mine to be more robust. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful.

"Fantastic."

As you can see from the photo, it works great! Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Returned, but agreed to try another one. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

"This works really well."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. What I love about this is the water return function. I found that it's difficult to use. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores.

"Treat that water."

Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it.

I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive!

"We shall see."

I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

"Cleans well and quickly."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"Wonderful product!"

The costomer service for this company is wonderful. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff.

"I totally recommend this."

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. I am so glad to have this for my fish care. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. This gravel vacuum works very well. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation.

"Marvelous."

I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.
