"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.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"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.

"But it's so cumbersome."

Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. Love the item and recommend this seller! I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. You won't go wrong with this product. I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it.

  • SunGrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit with Priming Bulb, 2-Minutes to Assemble, Facilitates Frequent Water Changes, Perfect for Cleaning Small Fish Tanks
  • ✔ GOOD AQUARIUM KEEPING AT YOUR DOORSTEP — No more scooping up dirty water with a pail; that can be messy. SunGrow Aquarium Cleaning Pump kit is a system with a hand controller that helps you clear out your tank efficiently and quickly by having the features you definitely need! This is suitable for maintaining both freshwater and saltwater tanks. Each part is meticulously designed to give you the best aquarium cleaning experience you can possibly have.
  • ✔ ROUTINE MAINTENANCE MADE EASY — Every SunGrow fish tank substrate cleaner comes with a short nozzle, nozzle net, flexible standard tubing, operation/pump bulb and discharge hose. While all these parts can be adjusted and modified as per your needs, the operation bulb or the hand starter is its unique component that sets it apart from other similar items in the market.
  • ✔ FREQUENT WATER CHANGE ENSURES HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT — Without water changes, your fish health may have an adverse impact. But, with the kink-resistant siphon cleaner by SunGrow, you can do it frequently and it will not take much of your time. This no-spill system is made high quality to not let aquarium fish get hurt or even disturbed while it is being used to transfer water.
  • ✔ 2-MINUTES TO SETUP — The short nozzle feature of SunGrow Aquarium sand and substrate cleaner is perfect when you want to replenish or drain water out of your tank. Just place the nozzle in your tank. For convenience, attach it with a suction cup. This will make work easier for you because you don’t need to hold it while draining out water! Press on, or squeeze the pump bulb 5 to 7 times and the water will start to flow out of the nozzle. See the description below for more details.
  • ✔ HASSLE-FREE STORAGE --- The flexible siphon pump helps preventing the small gravel and debris from going into the hose. Not only that, after it has done the deed, it won’t give you a hard time thinking where you would store it, as it can be placed practically anywhere! With its strategic portable design, you can keep it in any place you want where you can easily access it the next time you need it.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"It worked perfectly."

It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. Maybe this will make me not put them off now. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it.

"Multiple uses."

I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I wish i had bought this the first time. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one!

  • Aquarium Gravel Cleaner with Clips, Quick & Easy Assembly, Long Nozzle Manual Water Pump, Great for Frequent Water Changes, Fish Tank Cleaning Kit for Saltwater and Freshwater
  • ✔ ALL INCLUSIVE AQUARIUM CLEANING KIT --- Everything you need to properly and effortlessly change your aquarium water is included in the all-in-one gravel cleaning kit by SunGrow. Not only do you receive the long nozzle, durable Rhinox tubing, priming bulb and discharge hose, but also a pair of high-quality mounting clips.
  • ✔ ELIMINATES UNPLEASANT FISHY SMELL --- We all love the look of our pet fish, but the fishy smell is a different story. The best way to keep your aquarium fresh is by regularly cleaning the gravel and substrate of debris. Fish waste, excess minerals and leftover food can get caught and begin to cause an unpleasant odor.

With such a long nozzle, there is no need to worry about getting your sleeves wet or spilling water.
  • ✔ EASY TO USE MOUNTING CLIPS --- Each aquarium water changer is easily mounted to the rim of your fish tank or bucket using the included pair of blue tube clips. With the help of these efficient mounting clips, any 8mm to 16mm hose or tubing is firmly held in place for quick and easy tank cleaning.
  • ✔ USEFUL FOR A VARIETY OF SUBSTRATES --- More than just a simple gravel cleaner, the easy prime suction pipe works on many types of tanks and different kinds of aquarium or terrarium substrates. The high quality siphon works on quartz gravel, sand, vermiculite and crushed coral for reef and brackish water tanks.

"That was a bit confusing."

It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. You won't go wrong with this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. The best thing is I don't need to shovel gravels out to clean the bottom of the tank. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

You won't go wrong with this product. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. It's really a super super great tool. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow.

"It was such a pain."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless.

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet.

It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. Great product and would highly recommend! Now, the water change is a piece of cake. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.
