"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.

"This item is wonderful."

I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it!

"I just can't use it."

The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! The water from the front yard garden hose is cold. I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking.

"And it keeps flowing!"

Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. And suddenly it began running again! The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots.

"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 highly recommend this."

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! - Multiple head attachment for different tasks.

"Just look at the pics."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. This water pump certainly takes much of those hassle out of water changes. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily!

"This was perfect."

And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"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.

The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.
