    Great idea Quickly looses power

    By on

    In the beginning the cleanup was fast and fun in my 55 gal fresh water tank. It took a bit longer than I wanted, but watching the debris float into the filter was mesmerizing. Not having to use a bucket for dirty water was liberating. After a couple of uses the motor whined and I changed the batteries. It was a slight improvement but next use it slowed considerably. I think I have used in about 12 times in two years and today I put in new batteries and there's no suction. So I can't recommend it, I'm looking for a replacement and throwing this out. "Caveat emptor".

    not that great

    By on

    The vac works but it does not catch all the dirt in its little net, it only gets the large stuff and the fine stuff goes right thru and you end up with cloudy water. So my feeling is if they cut the price in half it would be worth it.

    Ideal idea!!!

    By on

    This vac does a fine job. My only wish....MORE POWER....LOL. It is a very useful tool and I have recommended it already. As for a Chewy, I tell everyone that I love, love, love you. When I see people lugging bags of food around the store, I tell them, "Oh my God, maybe you should give Chewy a try. Comparable prices and delivery! You can't beat that!" Always recommended.

    Excellent Product

    By on

    This is great to use between water changes! Or if you remove an aquarium ornament and find a stash of decaying food that you need to remove. The water and debri goes in, and water comes back out.

    Gravel cleaner

    By on

    Key word in description is “quick”. Could be more powerful, good for light cleanup (like on white gravel especially) any small pieces of wood etc will jamb impeller. Takes stuff off surface well but not for sticking in gravel like a Python. Getting debris in a Python is a pain. This offers a less aggressive approach.

    The best filtration device I’ve ever owned. Makes cleaning the tank so much faster and easier. I just hope it lasts longer than the reviews state. They stated the lifetime of the product was only about 3 years. I’m hoping for much longer.

    Works Great...while it's working

    This has nothing to do with Chewy but this product made by Eheim. As at least one person also wrote, the life expectancy of this item is 3 - 4 years. Which at this price is a little hard to swallow. But, it's the only battery operated cleaning tool that works really well and my 55 gallon tank gets cleaned a lot more often. The concept is great. Just need to perfect it. I wish someone else would come up with something like this so the manufacturer would feel the competition and do something about the life expectancy of this product. You do have to take your time and move slowly through the gravel and let it suck up all the debris. If you go too fast, you will have a cloudy tank full of debris This has nothing to do with Chewy but this product made by Eheim.

    Just a few minutes with this cleaner keeps my tank clean of detritus between changes. Good suction power and easy clean up.
