"I love it."

All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water.

Houkr Final Thoughts

"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.

"YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM."

Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing.

HIRO AQUATICS Final Thoughts

"Easy to use."

It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. It's really a super super great tool. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! The best thing is I don't need to shovel gravels out to clean the bottom of the tank. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. Best fish maintenance product I have purchased.

SLSON Final Thoughts

"Ouch, lol."

When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"Get one it's great!"

It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. And suddenly it began running again! It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate.

"Multiple uses."

But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using.

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.

6. Marine Aquarium - A Virtual Undersea Paradise

Encore Software First Impressions

"Wish were a tad longer."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product.

"It would have helped me."

You can't get a better product for such a decent price! It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. It was easy to use and really did the job! Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. And suddenly it began running again!

"For that price."

You won't go wrong with this product. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"If so hit helpful."

I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM."

I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

"I love this."

This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning.

"Would purchase again."

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. You won't go wrong with this product. The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly.
