"Multiple uses."

The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners.

"I just can't use it."

Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. It was easy to use and really did the job! I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"Everything looked great."

This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I bought this one and I absolutely love it.

Seachem 214 First Impressions

"Just look at the pics."

I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. This is definitely a better tool overall.

"Ouch, lol."

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Maybe this will make me not put them off now. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It quit working after the second use! I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank.

Great product and would highly recommend! I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. I found that it's difficult to use.

"Took him an hour."

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.

"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.

"This works really well."

Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! That will show you which parts go were. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less. It's really a super super great tool.

"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!

"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.
