"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!

"This will not rep!"

Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"It is junk."

Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. They more than helped me resolve my situation. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.

"IT's SO easy to use."

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box.

"So I gave it a shot."

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze.
