"This works really well."

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground.

"Cleaning is so EASY!"

I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do.

"I love it."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. You won't go wrong with this product. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

"It was such a pain."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless.

"Works perfectly."

It does the same work, only better and in half the time. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes.

4. Aqueon Water Changer 18" Gravel Tube (Tube Only)

Aqueon First Impressions

"I just can't use it."

The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! The water from the front yard garden hose is cold. I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking.

"And it keeps flowing!"

Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. And suddenly it began running again! The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots.

"MONEY SAVER!"

I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. It was easy to use and really did the job! It's really a super super great tool. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. Now, the water change is a piece of cake.

"Lesson learned."

It does the same work, only better and in half the time. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I bought this one and I absolutely love it.

"Love everything about it!"

And suddenly it began running again! I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. That will show you which parts go were. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it.

Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. So much better than my smaller python. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.
