I just wish It had a longer hose or could attach to a long hose. I have an 80gal and 100 Gal tank. I run a hose to my bathroom to drain the water. Or I will run it outside in the summer. I tried to attach it to the hose but it would not work. I will have to play around with it a bit more. For my 20 Gal tank this is a great vacuum.
Update: This does not last. I got some small gravel stuck in the hand pump part and it was useless. It was good while it worked. This is not made well I no longer recommend this Not for the price. May be if it was $2. I wish the parts were removable that would have been better.
The pump requires regular treatment to keep the plastic soft enough to be used. If you leave it dry too long, it becomes brittle and starts cracking.
I have 2 aquarium vacuums and I primarily use the other one (made of vinyl tubing) that does not have these cracking issues.
Furthermore when I brought this up to their customer support, they said I'd need to send it in for review and replacement. OK the item costs about $15, and it costs $15 to ship. This is clearly buyer unfriendly.
So, you have to be very careful when you're sucking the dirty of our tank that the other side is still sitting in the bucket and not splashing all over the floor. My old cleaning pump had a black clip that would fasten to the bucket edge and lock the tubing down to the bucket so it wouldn't fall out. That was nice.
The tube could be slightly larger, but I elevated my waste bucket (by stacking it on another bucket) so it was high enough to allow the tubing to properly sit in the bucket yet still reach the bottom of the tank.
The quality is done well, the product works as expected, the flow control valve slows it down (to about what our old one used to run at) and the "wide open" (no flow) is great for re-filling with clean water because I don't have to sit and wait too long.
I don't use the clip the flow is slow enough to get all the rocks clean without disturbing the rest of the tank. I use it to remove water too, and not
move leather corals too much. I really like this product and it BPA free, which I care about. Thanks
It is a little bit tough to keep the water pumping through when the water gets pretty low. I have a 30G stank and recently had to empty it and once I got down to about the last 10 gallons or so it was tough to keep that going. But that's to be expected when siphoning.
Overall great product!!
My only worry is that the tubing looks like it may easily split....hopefully it'll hang in there.
Other than that it's super easy to use and keeps everything under control and the fish seem happy.
