Description

Keep your fishy friends swimming free and clear with TeraPump’s Aquarium Gravel & Sand Cleaner! This manually-operated pump features an all-in-one design so both experts and novices can easily clean their tank’s substrate without disturbing its fishy inhabitants. A shorter nozzle is included to make draining your tank a breeze, while a longer nozzle is perfect for cleaning gravel in between regular washes. This gravel and sand cleaner even replaces the water you siphon out, making it twice as easy to clean your tank. Plus, with TeraPumps unique water flow control mechanism, you can easily select the exact amount of water you’d like to drain.

    It's okay, takes patience and a lot of effort to work.

    By on

    The first one I ordered was defective and didn't work. I was sent a replacement that works (sometimes) but it takes a lot of effort and countless pumps before the water starts siphoning itself out. Sometimes the flap inside the pump gets stuck incorrectly and the pump stops working. I usually just shake it until I get it to work. I used to try to use this for an hour then stop in frustration. I wouldn't recommend wasting time and energy on this product.

    Works fine for larger tanks than 2.5 gallons

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Easy to get the suction going, but overkill for a 2.5 gallon tank. The tank was half-emptied and I hadn't fully vacuumed the gravel. The flow volume control is a bit awkward to work properly, but that could just be operator error. Would suggest practicing with it a bit before sticking it into the tank. Think it would be great with a bigger tank

    came with hole in tubing

    By on

    I bought this for a yet unstocked tank. Friend was surprised by grandma getting fish for grandkids. So I decided to give it to her due to her being surprised and me having a as yet unneeded gravel vac. Unfortunately I went over yesterday to take it over and show her how to do a water change and after several squeezes of the ball, I barely got water coming in and water began hitting us through the holes!! So unfortunately a rarely found not good buy.

    Works well and is great for getting debris off the bottom of the tank

    Very flimsy

    By on

    The pump was flimsy. The part to clean gravel and the tubes were too short and too narrow. I was unable to use it on my 29 gallon tank.

    Heavy Water Flow

    By on

    It may be user error, but even when I pinch the tube, the water flow is still pretty heavy when using it. I couldn't figure out how to properly use it in my 10 gallon tank effectively.

    easy to use

    By on

    this is so easy to use. i had the syphon cleaner before and my tank is only 6 gallons it was hard to get started and made a mess and sucked out gravel. we just have goldfish and cleaning the gravel with this is soooo much easier and quick to do. well worth it

    This makes water changes quick and easy. Way better than removing water cup by cup.

    Works for a while

    By on

    Worked great for about 3 months then it stopped being able to pump water, most likely because it becomes not Air Tight any longer.
