They more than helped me resolve my situation. I knew siphoning would be an issue,.

"Debris gets sucked up."

I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! A little tricky with the hand pump.

"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.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I just pump the water directly into my sump. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank.

"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.

I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium.

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore.

I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.
