"Etc etc etc."

This gravel vacuum works very well. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"This will not rep!"

I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.

"Happy customer."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly.

Pawaboo Final Thoughts

"So I gave it a shot."

The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

"Research tank set up."

The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews.

"I highly recommend this."

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years.

"Works great."

Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly.
