"4- Finally a solution!"

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I found that it's difficult to use. As you can see from the photo, it works great! I just pump the water directly into my sump. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.

Koller Products TM1096 Final Thoughts

"But it's so cumbersome."

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. And the price is more than reasonable. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE.

Koller Products TM1415 First Impressions

"I LOVE this thing."

I should have believed the other reviews. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. Returned, but agreed to try another one. I just pump the water directly into my sump. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning.

"I recommend highly."

Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well.

"Etc etc etc."

This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! A little tricky with the hand pump. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! I may modify mine to be more robust.

"Great value!"

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing.

"No suction."

It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I would definitely recommend this product.

"Would def recommend!"

I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Prolly also easier to use with larger hands.

"Well worth it."

Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I would definitely recommend this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house.

I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part.

"From aquarium to sink."

I would definitely recommend this product. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system.

"Again this item is great."

The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs!
