"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.

"I recommend highly."

It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. You won't go wrong with this product. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. A little tricky with the hand pump.

"Lesson learned."

I would definitely recommend this product. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I love this setup and how easy it was to use.

"But it's so cumbersome."

I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly.

"Just saying."

This gravel vacuum works very well. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. 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 only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going.
