"It comes today."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing!

"THEN I FOUND THIS!"

Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. As you can see from the photo, it works great! Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc.

"Wish I found this sooner."

It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing.

"Debris gets sucked up."

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while.

"It really helped a lot."

Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

"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.

"This works amazingly!"

The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen.

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"This will not rep!"

Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I am so glad to have this for my fish care. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work.

"Still working great."

It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. That said, the results were excellent. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

"I love this."

If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.
