"Debris gets sucked up."

Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I just pump the water directly into my sump. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank.

SSRIVER Final Thoughts

"The primer pump works."

I wish i had bought this the first time. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I wish i had bought this the first time.

It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank.

HEEPDD Final Thoughts

"It has two connectors."

So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. 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. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae.

"It's so easy."

This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it.

The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

"It works great!"

It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! This thing does both at the same time and quickly. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.

"No spills and SO easy!"

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I knew siphoning would be an issue,.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

Returned, but agreed to try another one. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution. I just pump the water directly into my sump. At first I was furious with this thing. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely.

So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily.

"The siphon works great."

Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

"Lesson learned."

You fill the chamber with filter substrate. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I should have believed the other reviews. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. They more than helped me resolve my situation. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.
