Aqueon® Aquarium Water Changer
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.

Easiest way to clean a fishtank
Many people are probably still using the bucket method to clean a fish tank. Take out buckets of water, and replace after with clean water. This method works, however it's messy (water ends up everywhere) and your back hurts afterwards.
With the Aqueon® Aquarium Water Changer, changing the water is a BREEZE. Just finished using this for the first time, an my back doesn't hurt after taking out & replacing roughly 13 gallons of water. Took about 1/2 an hour total (because I took my time cleaning the bottom) but could have been done in roughly 15 - 20 minutes.
ALL FISH ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!
WILL NEVER USE THE BUCKET METHOD AGAIN!!!

Excellent Product - Works Very Well
This item works very well if you follow directions. Don't focus on what others have said that this does not work especially when it comes to suction. The KEY to suction is water pressure. The more pressure, the more suction you will get.
There is a huge difference using this product via a kithen faucet VS a utility faucet. I use mine using a utility faucet. Also, this item comes with adapters for almost every faucet available except for the fancy dancy ones. This item will also NOT leak at all if you connect the hose properly. The KEY is to put vasaline on the connector ends and push the hose on as far as it will go. I hope this helps.

Quick and Easy Water Changes
It did take some time to figure out how to get the best suction for the hose to work. We unscrew the bottom piece of our faucet and connected the smaller of the two included connector and it works like a dream. The 25 foot was perfect for us and our 10 & 37 gallon tanks. Total for the two takes max 30 minutes including cleaning gravel, refilling water, and clean up.
