"Cleans well and quickly."

Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! I would definitely recommend this product. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

Happie Shop HS Siphon Pipe Final Thoughts

"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!

"It is junk."

I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I have large fish and large fish make large poop!

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise.

"Hope this helps someone."

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. I should have believed the other reviews. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I have large fish and large fish make large poop!

"They are very well made."

I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. This gravel vacuum works very well. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect.

"It's so easy."

If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation.

WAGA First Impressions

"I'm so happy this works!"

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. And the price is more than reasonable. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. What I love about this is the water return function.

  • Siphon Gravel Cleaner Aquarium Fish Tank Vacuum Water Changer
  • 1. Put water changer in the fish tank on the other end of the water outlet in the bucket.
  • 2. Open the tap (without the tap can be omitted this step).
  • 3. Extruded lightly the gas chamber and adjust the inlet position to the water intake in time.
  • 4. Remove the characteristics of the feces or sundries in the fish tank.

"It really helped a lot."

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I wish i had bought this the first time. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. They more than helped me resolve my situation.

"But it's so cumbersome."

I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing!

The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.

I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I have large fish and large fish make large poop! Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever.

"I recommend highly."

I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box. I just pump the water directly into my sump.
