"Cleans well and quickly."

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.

KASAN Final Thoughts

"I just can't use it."

The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process.

"So that was MY BAD."

At first I was furious with this thing. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning.

"And it keeps flowing!"

Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning.

"I'm so happy this works!"

Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean.

I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. What I love about this is the water return function. I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks.

"Wonderful product!"

I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I may modify mine to be more robust. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank.

"So that was MY BAD."

The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. This thing does both at the same time and quickly.

"Both worked great."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

"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.

In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box.

"From aquarium to sink."

I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible.

"Both worked great."

Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free.

  • Free lifetime tech support from GA, USA
  • The plastic vacuum tube is only 1/4 inch wide, which is smaller than most of other cleaning vacuum cleaners.

"I recommend the vacuum."

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank.

I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners.
