I bought this about a week ago to replace my old python water changer that I've had for a while. At first, I was quite happy with it. It worked fine, and I had zero issues attaching the valve to my faucet. Then the valve got stuck in my faucet, and I could only unscrew it with a wrench. At first, I thought I might have screwed it in too tightly. The next time I did a water change, I made sure that the valve wasn't screwed in too tight, but that it was snug enough to prevent leaks. Halfway through the water change, the valve completely detached itself from the faucet. The valve parts have begun to stick to each other, making it impossible to move anything unless with a jar opener and a lot of elbow grease. Today, I noticed several cracks in the hose and valve. I have been exceptionally gentle with it, and for this much money, it shouldn't break so easily. Also, like others have mentioned, there is almost no suction. This means that there is a lot stagnant water sitting in the hose that you must drain after detaching it from the faucet. I'm going to buy another Python water changer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Julia123 It's okay
This is exactly what it says, a water changer. That's all it does. The clear piece isn't long enough to reach the gravel without putting your hand and arm in. It also does not have enough suction to clean the gravel. I have a 46 gallon bow front tank. It makes changing the water easy and quicker. I would recommend this product but be aware that you are going to have to get a vacuum for the gravel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by galaxieblast Love it!
I have the 50ft kit that I received for christmas, and I'm more than pleased by it. My aquarium is in the basement, and the only sink it can hook up to is on the floor above it. I was carrying water down the stairs for a while, but no longer! This is so much more convenient, not to mention easier on the back.
I have no complaints.
