"Fits together easily."

Definitely worth the money spent on the product. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"- 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.

"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.

Seachem 1469 First Impressions

"Wish were a tad longer."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.

"Easy to use."

This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

"Would purchase again."

It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice!

"Exactly what I needed!"

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank.

"Great product."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I wish i had bought this the first time. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement.

I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it! I got this one until my son broke my siphon. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions.

"Easy to use."

It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. It quit working after the second use! Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly.

"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.
