"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.

"Great value!"

The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. I have been looking for this for years. At first I was furious with this thing. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

  • EFFECTIVE POROUS SCREEN-The water inlet is equipped with porous filter net, which can effectively prevent the suction of sand, stone, fish, water grass, etc. in the process of changing water. Meanwhile, it can let the water, fish dung and other sundry matter in the tank come out through the suction hose of filter net, and play the role of changing water, washing sand and decontamination.
  • LONG HANDLE EASY HOLD- Lengthened hose for all sizes of fish tank attach suction cup. This will make work easier for you because you don't need to hold it while draining out water!

"Marvelous."

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I would definitely recommend this product. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"Fantastic."

The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I found that it's difficult to use. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly.

"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.

"Would def recommend!"

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor.

"I am so glad I did."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"I have double stands."

I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. They more than helped me resolve my situation. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

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.

I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

"It is junk."

Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. They more than helped me resolve my situation. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.
