"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."

Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one!

"Took him an hour."

They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Thank you for making my job easier. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water.

"Oh my gosh!"

I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! You can't get a better product for such a decent price! This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. So much better than my smaller python. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing.

"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.

"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.

"- 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.

"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.

"Oh my gosh!"

The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using.

"Don't do that!"

I got this one until my son broke my siphon. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. And suddenly it began running again! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice.

The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I found that it's difficult to use. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

"Great product."

It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. It fills buckets faster than my old siphon. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out.
