Mesh lets detritus through By Ramon on 10/15/2016

I bought this to suck up the detritus in my sump. It was hard to get a siphon started.
It sucked up the water, but all that junk just went back in the sump.

As others have said, it needs a filter sock added to the mesh area otherwise the really fine stuff passes right back into the tank. I still like this much better than a siphon and it is fully submersible.
Deceptively powerful By Angelo on 2/5/2016

Works well, you can actually see it pull up small fine particulate from sand, unfortunately goes right through screen and into water column. Cutting filter sock and getting mouth of vac through bottom, and pulling it over filter picks most of that up. Annoying though. All in all better than using a siphon. Surprisingly powerful
A must have for your sump! By 9StickN8 on 12/2/2014

I had a lot of detritus in my sump. Since my sump is on the floor, I was unable to start a siphon with a standard cleaner. This tool uses batteries to do the work, problem solved! I just removed the bottom extension to shorten the height. Within about 1 minute, I filled the collection container halfway up with sump detritus. Awesome!
Good Product.... By Scott on 11/19/2014

Have had this for a couple years. Use it frequently, my only complaint is that it will occasionally allow the junk you vacuum up back into the tank through the filter. Only does this for really small particles, or when the impeller chops something up fine enough to make it through.
Eheim Quick Vac By Frankie on 4/22/2013

The Eheim Quick Vac is a quality product which does an excellent job of vaccuming the gravel of my 30 and 20 gallon aquariums. It is very convenient and easy to use. Vaccuming while changing water does not work well for me. I find I can clean my gravel in just a few minutes, so I am able to do it more frequently.
