Powerfull Vac – Battery Vac for Aquariums (2 x LR14) Reviews

posted by stefangelten on 10/31/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The unit works very well. For my aquarium the tubes were a little bit too long so I cut them down in length. The pump can also be used to pump out water or refill your aquarium quite fast. No more sucking on hoses!! Also the unit is easy to clean and take apart after use.
Cons:
Everything looks a bit flimsy, nothing has broken down so far however. The pump unit itself does not handle gravel very well and eventually blocks. Stopping the pump for a few seconds allows the gravel to fall back.
Other:
The tailbutton is actually a push-on/push-off button but it was stuk in the beginning.
Bottomline:
Cheap and working great!
