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

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.
Basically my thoughts on it are this: If you're looking for something that will eliminate you lugging buckets around and you're on a budget, this gets the job done, but it is made out of lower quality materials than the Python and is far less durable. If you have the extra money to spend I say go for the Python brand. If not, this works fine.
Well on the new piece I bought the bit that connects the hose to the unit broke........ I'm glad I saved the parts from the other one that broke. I am looking for a way to build one out of metal..... uuuhhg. DO NOT BUY if you're wanting it to last.
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.
I bought the 25 foot version, planning to hook it into my bathroom sink, but the included adaptor didn't work no its faucet, and the setup is actually pretty big so doesn't fit in very shallow sinks! Yikes! I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning and re-buying the 50-footer, nor do I actually need double the length, so I extended my changer with some pvc tubing and a coupler from Home Depot. I was worried that adding the additional tubing (it's now about 35 feet) would somehow affect the power or effectiveness of the gadget, but nope! Still chugs along just fine.
I use this in a no-substrate tank with no issues - the force is gentle enough to not stress the occupants (who are much too large to be sucked up or affected by its gentle pull), so we don't have to remove them to do maintenance, which is a total timesaver and much less stressful for us and them! :) Back when we (like everyone else) were doing buckets, we had to relocate our pets between each big cleaning session and that totally sucked.
