"Doing an 80."

Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. This is definitely a better tool overall. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. And suddenly it began running again! Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product.

"TIME SAVER!"

It's really a super super great tool. It does the job I need it to,very effective. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. So much better than my smaller python.

"Would def recommend!"

Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone.

"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.

"No biggie."

This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. It's really a super super great tool. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow.

"It cleans itself!"

Love the item and recommend this seller! It's really a super super great tool. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. It fills buckets faster than my old siphon. And suddenly it began running again! Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily.

"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.

"Exactly what I needed!"

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank.

"Great product."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I wish i had bought this the first time. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement.

"It works perfect!"

I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone.

"I'm so happy this works!"

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. And suddenly it began running again!

"This was perfect."

If used in a deeper tanks, the shower effect will all be underwater. It does the same work, only better and in half the time. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.
