"Instructions are good."

Makes keeping the fish tank alot easier and quicker! I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. I opted for a gift card and I will have to find another way to make this thing. This is definitely a better tool overall. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated.

ZaneSun Final Thoughts

"MONEY SAVER!"

I found that it's difficult to use. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

"Everything looked great."

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it.

"Very high quality."

I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. This is definitely a better tool overall. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change.

"I returned that one."

Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one!

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! Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It quit working after the second use! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it.

"Love everything about it!"

Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. So much better than my smaller python. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.

"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! They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again.

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!

"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.

"Or soft hose."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! That will show you which parts go were. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it.

"I'm so happy this works!"

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

"Cleans well and quickly."

The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. This is definitely a better tool overall.
