Aqueon water changer

Just spent $75 bucks on this water changer that attaches to the sink so I could get my 55 gallon back up and running with out having to pick up 5 gallon buckets ( currently pregnant so that's a no go) but I can not for the life of me get this thing to suction like its suppose to so I can clean my dirty gravel. Help?

Do you have your sink on as high as it will go? You can also try attaching it to a hose.

Yes we had the water on full blast but now I'm thinking the flow still isn't good enough. I'm not sure it will reach to our hose outside I will have to check that out.

make sure all the nuts on the valve assembly are tight. the least bit of air will kill the suction. I assume the valve on both ends is set properly? one time I did not have the valve on the vacuum end set properly
