"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.

"Been using for years."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Thank you for making my job easier. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"It was easy to assemble."

They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. This is definitely a better tool overall. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. The water from the front yard garden hose is cold. Maybe this will make me not put them off now.

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice!

"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.

"It has two connectors."

When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank.

I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. You can't get a better product for such a decent price!

"It worked perfectly."

It quit working after the second use! Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much!
