I've been out of the aquarium game for a bit, but used to have this and it was great for my water changes. I think it usually goes for between $50-$60. Take note that the green part which attaches to the sink may be too long for some bathroom sinks... I had to use my kitchen sink which was deeper.

Really good price for the 50 footer as this is the usual price for the 25 foot version.

I use this for my weekly water changes too! Makes life easy.

Awesome price! I purchased mine during the summer for $60. Even at $60, it's worth every single penny. This is a great price! Thanks for posting.

Awww...I [.I] don't have one Frown Concur with others here, super tool for WCs, couldn't live w/o it. Also, the key to this system is that lime green valve/venturi. Be careful when you operate it. You pull it out to draw suction and push it in to divert flow to the tank. If you pull out too hard it can break the valve.

I've only used the 25' and the basic which you siphon into buckets. These are easy and awesome if you have a 55g or larger

I had one of these quite a few years ago. Do they still waste a ton of water when used for siphoning or have improvements been made? Thank you

To directly answer your question...when siphoning it MUST use your spigot water flow at max for it to siphon, so it will "waste" water from your spigot in the amount of what ever time it takes to siphon you aquarium down to desired level. For example if that takes 10 minutes and your spigot water flow is 10 gallons per minute, then you will waste 100 gallons of water. I use my outside water hose so that was water for siphoning goes to my oak trees and purple hearts, so not entirely wasted. But even then, if I were using in in a sink and 100% of the water was going down the drain, I would still use it. Water down the drain isn't exactly wasted, sure you pay for it, but to each his own.

Would this work if I hook it up to a garden hose instead of a sink?

I have a large turtle tank that I constantly have to change water out of. It's outside in the backyard and would love to just dump the water onto the grass

I bought part of this system to use as a gravel vac but I'm a bit disappointed. The tubing is too flexible and kinks too easily where it attaches. Also I had a question but couldn't get any response whatsoever from the company.
