This system works for what it is. The only downside is that is has to be attached to a faucet in order to get the siphon to pull the water from the aquarium and with the water running to create the vacuum, if you have a larger aquarium you could easily waste many gallons of water.

I've owned another brand in the past and after many years of wear and tear it was time to replace it. This does the job but the tube is smaller and the water pumps out slower than The Python I used to own.

Other reviews reference the fittings, and those are accurate. The only faucet I could use the included fittings on was my outside spigot (which works for me, since it's within 50 feet of tank inside) but even a large name-brand hardware store couldn't order adaptors that fit the inside sinks.HOWEVER--it's worth every cent! Other than running in-and-out to switch settings, this aparatus makes water changes a cinch! I have recently upgraded to a 75-gallon tank for my turtles and this is the cleanest my water has been in EVER! Not only that, it goes longer between changes when when I use the vacuum--normally,with a stong filter I get 7 days max--I can now go 9 easily, and 12 without turtles staging an active protest. I would definitely recommend this product for those looking for a quick-and-easy water exchange.

Found this to be a super easy way to clean and refill our 75gal aquarium; definitely a time-saver. No bucket brigade for this house. Recommend for deeper tanks to change out the clear plastic vacuum tube for a longer one.

I was using a short water changer into a bucket and using the waste water in the garden. I now just take less than ten minutes to clean my tank and collect so much more junk from the gravel with this changer. Great Pick.
