The Marina AquaVac is a complete gravel cleaner and water changer. The hose adapter easily connects to most industrial and outdoor faucets, while the brass adapter fits securely to most standard faucets. The water pressure from your tap and suction pump drives the AquaVac system, and once you are connected all you have to do is twist the pump to drain or fill your aquarium. It is equipped with a gravel guard to ensure that no gravel is trapped in the hose while you clean your aquarium. The gravel cleaner tube is 18" long with a 50' hose to provide easy reach into your aquarium. The durability and reliability of the Marina AquaVac helps ensure that your aquarium will get the proper cleaning it needs.

It won't hook up to our bathroom faucet but does fit the kitchen faucet after we remove the aerator. Our faucet is similar to this one Delta Orleans 2457 Two Handle Kitchen Faucet with Spray, Chrome.
The oval-shaped, gravel tube is a generous 18" long & comes with a removable gravel guard which keeps gravel & fish from being sucked up into the tube.
We hook it up to the faucet to put water back into the aquarium. (We run the water into a glass & test with a thermometer until the water matches the temperature in the aquarium.) As the tank begins filling, we add Seachem Prime 500ml to the tank to remove chlorine. It also removes ammonia & other harmful stuff, as well as, providing a slime coat for the fish.
50' of hose is more than we need so we cut a few feet off & don't have to hassle with that extra length anymore. The hose is thick & wasn't easy to cut.
Easy to understand step-by-step instructions are included.
Great product, sure makes weekly aquarium upkeep much simpler.
On the connector, I absolutely love that it's brass and not the plastic. On the tubing, it's very thick, firm and doesn't even bend that easily. Of course, it does bend, but it wasn't as easy to do so as I initially thought. The water flow is smooth when siphoning and cleaning the tank with it.
On top of the high quality of the Marina Clean Water Changer, I think the price was very cheap! You can't beat it!
I highly recommend this to anyone that is STILL using buckets! No more of those for me!!
The only negative I can think of is the faucet attachment did not fit my tap so I had to spend some time visiting hardware stores to find one that would work (this process took longer than it should since the store employee(s) were not that experience.... yes like myself...lol). I wound up having to purchase 2 separate attachments for a total of about $9 The 1st attachment needed was a part that would fit my tap(male) and the other end increased to accept a 3/4 inch hose (faucet to hose adapter). 2nd attachment need was a 3/4 inch swivel double hose adapter (3/4" FH x 3/4" FH) that was easily found when I knew what to look for (make sure you buy one that the joints swivel). I joined these 2 adapters together to the water changer and set up the suction hose inside my aquarium, turned on my tap and like magic the water soared through the plastic hose and down the drain. You can control the speed by adjusting your water flow at your tap. When you have finished draining your aquarium, just lift the suction hose out of the water (with the tap water still running) and the hose pressure will continue to drain out the water inside the hose into your sink....OR .... just leave the suction hose in place, adjust the water temperature coming out of the tap to your aquarium heat, pull up and twist the bottom water changer attachment (where the water comes out) and you will have fresh water flowing back into your tank.
I chose this brand since I liked the filter protector so my fish wouldn't get sucked up the tube. The other adapters in this package seemed more durable but then again I can't use them so there is no point in rating them. Overall its a great product and very happy with it.
Tip: When pulling water from tanks, you can get the suction going and then shut the water off at the sink so that you don' waste water and it will siphon out on its own.
I have also owned the python system and I would say that they are the same. I am glad that I purchased the Marina version again and saved some money for something else.
Update: 12/30/15 - This water changer is still working strong and without an issue years later. Try your best at emptying the water from the hose so that it can dry properly between uses. I store my hose wrapped in a circle shape after emptying it. It's compact enough to hang from a hook in my broom closet once secured with a length of Velcro.
