"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.

Happie Shop Final Thoughts

"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.

"So not too durable."

The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Great product and would highly recommend!

"Research tank set up."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. I wish i had bought this the first time. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots.

"I highly recommend this."

Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. I got this one until my son broke my siphon.

So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions. Thank you for making my job easier. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Thank you for making my job easier.

"Gets it going fast."

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it.

"Good purchase."

This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. Thank you for making my job easier. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. So much better than my smaller python. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

"I will try again."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. It quit working after the second use! I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.

"Finally, I found this."

Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. The water from the front yard garden hose is cold. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots.

"Mine's just 5."

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. So much better than my smaller python. Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes.

"Don't do that!"

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often.

I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. This is definitely a better tool overall.

"Ouch, lol."

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Maybe this will make me not put them off now. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It quit working after the second use! I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners.
