"Just a quick tip."

You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands.

"YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM."

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. So much better than my smaller python.

"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.

And suddenly it began running again! I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. I bought this one and I absolutely love it.

"This was perfect."

If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"Fairly easy set up."

It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful.

I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change. It does the job I need it to,very effective. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products.

"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.

"I just can't use it."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It was easy to use and really did the job! The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Maybe this will make me not put them off now.

"I purchased two of these."

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Just incase there is residual factory lube or something on it. Love the item and recommend this seller! This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes.

I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. 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.
