"Lesson learned."

When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank.

"I will try again."

Best fish maintenance product I have purchased. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided.

"It was such a pain."

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. So much better than my smaller python. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. I take that off to hit the fine crevices.

"It worked perfectly."

Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. You won't go wrong with this product.

"Get one it's great!"

It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. And suddenly it began running again! It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate.

"Multiple uses."

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.

"- Very easy to use."

I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction.

"Oh my gosh!"

I bought this one and I absolutely love it. It quit working after the second use! I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.

"MONEY SAVER!"

I found that it's difficult to use. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. And suddenly it began running again! It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy!

"Cleaning is so EASY!"

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet.

"For that price."

You won't go wrong with this product. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.
