Bent tubing...

by
Reviewers Rating Great

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I have used gravel cleaners in the past and never had an issue. When I received this product, the tubing was bent and pinched. I assumed over time that it would reshape. It has not. It makes it very difficult to vacuum a tank when the tubing keeps pinching. I have to use clamps to keep the tube's shape.haha. Not sure if it's cheap hose or just been bent for too long. Maybe mine is the only one that got bent like this...I like gravel cleaners, just maybe not this one. Thanks again MarineDepot for quick shipping!

tubing kinks

Comments: I have used many gravel vacs for over 20 years. The tubing that came with this one is very thin walled so it kinks where it bends and thus blocks the flow of water. The rigid tube, bulb and bucket clip all work fine so I will probably just replace the tubing with thicker walled hose from the hardware store.

Very Happy

Comments: Used this immediately, and what a world of difference the bulb makes from the one you have to shake. So much easier to get primed. All the parts fit together snugly, no leaks, it picked up my aragonite sand just enough to efficiently clean it without siphoning it out. Overall very happy with this product. Also have to say, Customer Service's note they sent to my e-mail about how their shipping elves were working diligently to ensure my package got to me on time and in good condition, was quite cute.

Gravel Cleaner - Really

by
Reviewers Rating Below Average


Posted: 3/6/2013 from BROOKLYN, NY UNITED STATES
2.0 5
Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I have this item I bought because the tube was long and it actually reaches the bottom of the tank without getting my hands wet but that is the only good thing about it. Its a gravel cleaner and it doesnt clean the gravel as it shows on the photo it only takes out the water. So if you want to empty your tank then yes I recommend you use this product it will do just that quick and easy.

Siphon Vac

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: I always have had lots of trouble with the regular kind of gravel cleaners. I would just get going and then lose the vacuum and have a real mess trying to get it going again. With the Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Gravel cleaner it is 4-5 quick squeezes and it is going great! I also like the clip that keeps the hose in the bucket--another disaster with the other kind. Love this product and it awesome for those like myself that always have something "go wrong". No more messes!!!

Comments: I loved using this product. It was very easy to start with a few up and down movements, no more siphoning by sucking water out of the end. Cleaned very will. Great price!
