Water changer and filler

Thinking about getting this. Anyone got one? Are they any good and how long is the hose?

I have the python version. They have two size hoses one 25' and 50'. I've heard they are good. I love mine I never use the siphon part to sink I just let run to the tub. Doesnt have the same amount of suction but it does the job.

I have one that is 25ft. Go to craigslist and you might get one for a cheaper price. That makes PWC a lot easier and faster. The $39.99 probably is only 25ft and the $59.99 is 50ft.

I have the 50 foot aqueon one, it works great!!!

The more expensive one is the 50 foot, the less is the 25 foot.

I have both the Python and the Aqueon. The Python is 2x as fast draining a tank, but the Aqueon's parts seem better built. Python has more choices when it comes to the length of the gravel vac. I have a 12", 24", and a 36".

Bought the Aqueon 50" one today. It will take about a week to get here. Hope it's worth it.

I got the 25' aqueon one, check out the reviews section for equipment you may want to buy.

Here is my review (and others) that I posted a while ago.
