Eliminates Spills and Heavy Lifting

The goal of all aquarists, no matter what their experience level, is to keep their fish and aquatic life happy and healthy. In order to achieve this goal, routine water changes and vacuuming of substrate is required. The Aqueon aquarium water changer was designed to help eliminate the potential for messy spills and transporting heavy buckets of water. Simply attach the water flow assembly to the faucet using the included multi-connections faucet adaptor and turn on the faucet.

Complete Water Flow Control

While vacuuming gravel, the key to thorough cleaning is water flow. Just the right amount of water flow will meticulously agitate the gravel to remove loose dirt while reducing the amount of water that dispenses into the sink. The easy-grip molded handle on the gravel tube includes a built-in on/off valve for total water flow control at your fingertips. The same valve on the sink attachment can be adjusted to reduce splashing of dirty water in the sink.

I wish I had bought this product years ago!

Don't connect the hose to the part that goes on the faucet (water flow assembly) until after you have it screwed into the aerator hole.

It makes cleaning the tank and water changes so easy that I do it twice as much now.

It took a while to set up this product. Just wanted to pass along a couple of tips to help. It's easy to use and does waste some water, but it's much better than hauling buckets and trying to keep them clean.

1. Don't connect the hose to the part that goes on the faucet (water flow assembly) until after you have it screwed into the aerator hole. It twists much more easily.

2. Make sure you remove all of the coils out of the hose so that it lays flat before using each time.

3. Make sure your faucet is facing down. We have one that pulls out so you can spray with it, and it tilts to the side unless we put it in facing straight down. (oh, and if you have this type, there IS an aerator hole on the bottom of it, just flip it over and look -that's where it hooks up).

4. Buy a second thermometer so you can get the water temperature of the water from the faucet. Your water flow assembly will have to be open. When you're done, turn it off to fill up the hose. Make sure your vacuum is set to off. Once it's filled, turn water assembly to on first, and then vacuum to on.

5. If you don't want to waste as much water, you can reduce your water flow to a point where there is still suction, but lower water output.

6. Before you start to refill, turn vacuum to off and manually raise hose starting at tank so that all of your dirty water is out of the hose before refilling tank.

Think that's it.

I own both this and the Python equivalent and it is painfully obvious that the Aqueon is way better made. The Python leaks horribly at the faucet connection and has snapped apart from the faucet multiple times. They're basically the same product, but the Aqueon is better quality and so I recommend it.

Received this item a few days ago and tried it out. Here are my thoughts.

Hose - Thick and sturdy - not flimsy like a lot of other vacuum hoses. Won't crease on you during use which is important. I believe it will stand the test of time.

Vacuum Attachment - Thick and wide enough to do the job. Won't break apart as you scrape it through the gravel to suck up the crap buried in it.

Faucet Attachment - Comes with several different attachments. Fit on my faucet easily with no leaks.

Use - Put the vacuum end into the water. Open the valve at the vacuum and open the valve at the faucet while running the faucet and the auto-siphon will begin. Make sure you turn off your aquarium filter so you don't burn it out and remove any plants/decorations in the water so you can do the job right. Might also be a good idea to clean out your sink of dishes, etc because all that crap will be coming back to your sink and going down your drain. Get down into the gravel and watch all the crap start lifting out from between the rocks. After you're done vacuuming simply lift the vacuum out of the water and let all the water suction out of the faucet end until the hose is empty. To fill the tank back up, simply close the faucet valve and the water will flow freely into the tank back through the vacuum end.

Easy enough and definitely worth the money. Good luck!

The Aqueon water changing system is a simple device that makes aquarium maintenance a snap. Back in my younger days, I used to use a cheap gravel siphon and buckets to change my water. This took up a considerable amount of time, was often very messy, and would stress my fish out.

I later upgraded to a sand substrate instead of gravel (don't have to siphon the the bottom floor anymore, just skim the top :)), bought a python system and was finishing my weekly water change in less than 15 minutes. However, the plastics in the python system wore out over time and I was having issues with leaks. The problem with the python system is that it uses plastic threading to choose either suction or fill mode- this part of the system wears out very quickly, especially if you use sand because it grinds against the thread when you are constantly twisting. I personally think the python manufacturer designed it this way so that the owner has to buy new replacement parts, which often cost almost a third of the entire system.

After my python system became useless, I bought this Aqueon system to see how it compares and it's MUCH better in terms of reliability and build quality. The aqueon system plastics will not wear out as quickly as the python system because the suction/fill selection uses a switch to turn it on or off. There is no pulling or twisting to be done here to turn suction on and off, so the threading is not worn out.

I really don't know why the Python system is so much more popular, the Aqueon system is far better in my opinion. I've owned both systems, and you cannot go wrong with the Aqueon system!

Spend the extra 15 or 20 dollars over the cheapy gravel filters and buy a real system like the Aqueon- you'll be saving lots of time, stress (on yourself and your fish), and workload.

I used to do water changes by using a siphon and two 5-gallon buckets. This worked fine for my 30 gallon aquarium, but when I got a new 75 gallon aquarium, I knew I needed something more efficient. This system makes water changes quick and mess-free. Switching the water flow and timing the process out is slightly difficult with only one person, but if you use a clamp to secure the hose to the inside of the tank, it's totally possible. I wouldn't recommend doing large water changes (40%+) at one time with this product though, because the water comes directly from the tap and doesn't have a whole lot of time to neutralize before it's breathed in by your fish. Be sure to add water neutralizers periodically as the tank fills, and you should be perfectly fine with changes up to 30-40%. The craftsmanship of this product rivals Python, especially for the price. The hose is thick, and so far, all of the plastic parts have been sturdy and durable. Highly recommended!
