"Took him an hour."

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. And suddenly it began running again! It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. It quit working after the second use! The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less.

Gravel Cleaners Final Thoughts

"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.

Aquarium Water Changers First Impressions

"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.

"- 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!"

The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using.

"This was perfect."

This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Great product and would highly recommend! It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products.

"Love everything about 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.

"Just look at the pics."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. This water pump certainly takes much of those hassle out of water changes. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily!
