Aqua KT First Impressions

"No doubt, it is worth it."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. It does the job I need it to,very effective. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it.

Aqua KT Final Thoughts

"Wish I found this sooner."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily.

"If so hit helpful."

I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM."

I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

"I'm so happy this works!"

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. So much better than my smaller python. The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

"- Very easy to use."

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Love the item and recommend this seller!

"Who knows."

Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.

"Wish I got one sooner!"

5 gallons- it works amazingly well. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. The water from the front yard garden hose is cold. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less.

"Easy to use."

It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it. The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often. Best fish maintenance product I have purchased. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it! The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it.

"I returned that one."

Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. It does the job I need it to,very effective. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it.

"Fantastic."

I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. Great product and would highly recommend! We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. You can't get a better product for such a decent price!

"No biggie."

This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. It's really a super super great tool. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow.

Love the item and recommend this seller! It's really a super super great tool. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. It fills buckets faster than my old siphon. And suddenly it began running again! Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily.

But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using.
