Aqueon features a variety of accessories to help keep your fish and their aquatic environment clean and healthy. The Aqueon Aquarium Water Changer was developed to make routine water changes and vacuuming gravel easy and efficient for any level aquarist. Complete water flow control prevents spillage, facilitates more complete, thorough cleaning and eliminates the need for lifting heavy buckets of water.
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.
What's in the Box
- 11-inch gravel tube with built-in water flow control valve
- Water flow sink attachment with adjustable valve and splash-reducing guard
- Multi-connection faucet adaptor
- 25 or 50 feet of flexible tubing

New Update: Went to purchase adapter to hook this up and the connection from the hose to the piece that connects to the faucet is cracked funny how it does not even screw on. I could not image using this at all. Will connect with the seller to see if they will replace but at this point save yourself money and don't purchase this.
Cons: This is not a good gravel cleaner. It wouldn't pick up anything since the suction was so incredibly poor and my tank is actually still dirty on the bottom. Two of my Panda Cory Catfishes actually swam into the gravel cleaner part and just swam back out without even trying. Although I'm happy they are okay it also proves how weak the suction is. The only reason this has 3 stars instead of 1 is because it makes emptying and filling my tank easy.
All you have to do is screw it into you faucet (after unscrewing the existing aerator), drop the other end in the tank, and turn the water on. There's a couple other steps involving some switches but it's all in the directions. You can also purchase an extension part that allows you to recycle the old tank water by plumbing it out to your yard or garden.
If I were to call out one complaint, however, it's that there's no compartment to allow for mixture of additives. By it's nature adding water to a tank requires at least one chemical additive (a conditioner), possibly several depending on the type of aquarium. It's always recommended to mix the additives with the new water before dumping it in, but you can't do that with this product. Instead you just have to mix it as best you can while the water is flowing into the tank.
Update 3-6-2016: Now after using about 4 months the plastic coupling that attaches the hose to the body broke. After examination, the rim of the fitting is very thin and with typical usage it's apparent why it broke. It's obviously a weak design. Fixed with super glue until I can get a new fitting. Another hassle. Maybe a different product in the future
The first one I bought, the hose starts to leak, break, after 2 years of use but I discovered the problem was that I'm leaving it out in the sun for (2) years. I bought a second one, and started covering it up with a towel and it's been fine. Just don't bake it in the sun and you'll be ok.
