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.

"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.

"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.

It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Returned, but agreed to try another one. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs.

"I love it."

So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible.

"Finally, I found this."

I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I am so glad to have this for my fish care.

"We shall see."

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.

"If so hit helpful."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. 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. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I just left the spongy looking one.

"IT's SO easy to use."

I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank.

"But it's so cumbersome."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I have been looking for this for years. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. This gravel vacuum works very well.

"Another tip."

Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable.
