"But it's so cumbersome."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I have been looking for this for years. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

"Quality materials."

Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. You won't go wrong with this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. I have been looking for this for years.

"It is fine for my needs."

Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

"Great for 75 gallon."

It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. What I love about this is the water return function. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"Fantastic."

I have been looking for this for years. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. At first I was furious with this thing. I should have believed the other reviews. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs!

"Cleans well and quickly."

I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

"I love this."

If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

"No spills and SO easy!"

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I knew siphoning would be an issue,.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

Returned, but agreed to try another one. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution. I just pump the water directly into my sump. At first I was furious with this thing. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely.

I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.

"I recommend highly."

The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

"Love this product!"

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up.

"Very easy clean up!"

In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. As you can see from the photo, it works great!

So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great!

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.
