"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. Now, the water change is a piece of cake.

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.

"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.

"Cleans well and quickly."

It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. That will show you which parts go were.

"I purchased two of these."

Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. So much better than my smaller python. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"It works perfect!"

I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone.

"I'm so happy this works!"

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. And suddenly it began running again!

"So I gave it a shot."

This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction.

"I'm so happy this works!"

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

"Cleans well and quickly."

The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. This is definitely a better tool overall.
