I've had several aquarium syphons over the years and I'm quite satisfied with Aqueon. I'll have to say that the 20' extension needs improvement when it comes to construction and design. The hose is not wide enough to allow sufficient water flow once it's connected to the main syphon. A wider hose would help. I believe this is due to the plastic connector that is used to attach the extension to the main hose. The most important improvement I would suggest is the material of the connector - fragile PVC plastic. The connector is very sensitive and when I tightened one end to the main hose it broke. It's not that I over tightened the connector, it's just made out of cheap plastic. An aluminum connector or maybe a stronger material would make this product useful. I'll have to make my own connector to be able to use the extension without a leak on my living room floor. Decent product - cheap material.

We bought this for more hose length to maintain tanks that are far away from water sources. One reason I chose the Aqueon hose to begin with was the relative stiffness of the hose. I don't want kinks in the line while I am stringing water across the house. However, the extension hose is NOT the same tubing that was used on the original and does have a tendency to kink. This is not to say it's as flimsy as the cheap tubing you can buy at the hardware store, but it doesn't hold up the way the original hose does. I don't have an alternative to suggest, but do keep in mind that it's a bit flimsy.

This is simple to use and does what it should. It simply adds an extension to your water changer. Much less expensive than buying a new longer water changer.

This is a very nice add-on to your existing water changer. I recently moved and needed an extension to reach my big tank so I got this. It took me all of 30 seconds to figure out how to do it and five minutes to finish the project. Very easy and very useful. I would buy again.
