"It cleans itself!"

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. I am very pleased with this product!

"This works really well."

I opted for a gift card and I will have to find another way to make this thing. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

"I returned that one."

Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. It does the job I need it to,very effective. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it.

"Fantastic."

I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. Great product and would highly recommend! We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. You can't get a better product for such a decent price!

"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.

"Ouch, lol."

Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. I opted for a gift card and I will have to find another way to make this thing. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

"No doubt, it is worth it."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions. Love the item and recommend this seller! Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.

"No doubt, it is worth it."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. It does the job I need it to,very effective. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it.

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

"I purchased two of these."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. This water pump certainly takes much of those hassle out of water changes. That will show you which parts go were.

"Fairly easy set up."

Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. So much better than my smaller python. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"Totally recommend."

Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks.
