"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.

VavoPaw Final Thoughts

"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.

2. uxcell Fish Tank Hand Squeeze Cleaning Water Change Cleaner Pump, 1.6m

uxcell a13120400ux1121 First Impressions

"Fantastic."

It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. The water from the front yard garden hose is cold.

"Oh my gosh!"

This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. It was easy to use and really did the job! It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. It quit working after the second use! Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

"Nothing bad to say."

Definitely worth the money spent on the product. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. Love the item and recommend this seller!

"I just can't use it."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again.

"I love this."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Just incase there is residual factory lube or something on it. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. I opted for a gift card and I will have to find another way to make this thing. I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it.

"Easy to use."

Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! It does the job I need it to,very effective.

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.

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.

"The thing is huge, too."

It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it!

"That was a bit confusing."

I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.
