"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.

"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.

"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.

"This works really well."

I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless.

"Don't do that!"

I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well.

"Totally recommend."

It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME!

"But it's so cumbersome."

It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"MONEY SAVER!"

The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! This is definitely a better tool overall. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME!

"Ouch, lol."

Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. I opted for a gift card and I will have to find another way to make this thing. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.
