This is an amazing product if you know how to use it correctly and attach it to your faucet right, I just recently upgraded from a 5. gal bucket to this, and I am never going back. It makes my weekly water changes SO simple!

I have been using this system for many years, and could not see how I managed without it. It is so easy to use. Before I was carrying buckets of water to and fro to empty and re-fill the tank. Took a long time. Now it is just as easy as turning on the tap. I would recommend this gadget to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DocHavok Cheap garbage considering how expensive it is!!!!
Do not buy this product. Despite being expensive giving you the impression that it is well made this syphon is complete and total garbage. Total waste of money. I had a similar syphon under a different name, I think it was called a python that lasted literally 10 years or more and ultimately I broke it by crushing the mouth of it by accident so it would probably still be working for me today. However, this product lasted only three months, I am so mad. The cheap connections made it hard to attach to my sink, it was a constant battle keeping the darn thing attached, the cheap plastic connector would just misthread or bend and snap right off. If that wasn't frustrating enough the valve would stick and it stuck so bad once that it snapped off. I superglued it and got maybe another month out of it. Then, as I mentioned already about the cheap plastic connector while trying to screw the thing on it split down the side and would no longer create a good enough seal to provide any suction at all. I am so mad I did not still have my receipt or I would have returned this piece of garbage. If you want to spend $70 every few months go ahead any buy this worthless item. Otherwise I suggest going with pretty much anything else. Even if that means old school buckets and 50 trips back and fourth to the sink. This product is absolutely terrible, I can't express this enough. Very unhappy, in fact quite angry about it.
