Not everything Included! By Ron on 4/15/2019Ron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendManufacturer cheaps out by not including tubing on the opposite side of the squeeze ball! Yet another product that doesn't come with everything needed to get it to function. Thanks for wasting my time Python!
Doesn't Work By Rich on 11/24/2018Rich wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered this system to helpmake water changes easier and cleaner. This make it worse. The pump syphon doesn't work at all brand new out of box. I had to suck on one end to get the syphon to get going. It also started to leak at the pump. This was brand new first time using it. Going to find another system for water changes.
dont buy By Cherub on 8/23/2018Cherub wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis thing was junk! I thought buying one BRS recommends over a shops offering would have been superior but I bought this and it worked for about a month and a half, that's like 3 uses for me. The seal broke and now I cannot siphon water out. Absolute junk this brand. Find something better and when you do tell me about it since I need one. I bought this a while back and am just reviewing it as I found it in a box of stuff I am tossing and it reminded me.
Plastic is not strong By Jason on 2/15/2018Jason wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe green plastic that is on top of tube that attaches to flex tube broke on the 2nd use. It's now useless!
Poor siphon By Evan on 11/24/2017Evan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDon’t waste money. Bulb leaked. Difficulty for siphon to work and had to mess with the ball in valve and still didn’t siphon.
Could be better By Brian on 6/27/2017Brian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis siphon has the squeeze ball at the very end of the hose... so it just sits in the bucket of water being siphoned out. Kinda weird. Top fin brand siphons from Petsmart have the squeeze ball in the center of the hose and also come with a clip to attach to the bucket.
Don't waste your money. By Joshua on 5/8/2017Joshua wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product, however made by Python, isn't good at all. The bulb is not well built and leaks. It does not create a syphon at all. I ended up keeping it and now create a manual syphon.
Great product! By Anna94 on 1/27/2017Anna94 would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great product! It works really well and it eliminates the need to waste water while using the python to drain the tank using the sink. It also eliminates the need to suck on the hose to get the siphon started. My mom can now feed the old tank water to her plants again.
Great Product By Andrew on 10/19/2016Andrew would recommend this product to a friendYes, it's a simple product. But it is high quality and the siphon bulb is great. No more tank water in your mouth. And made in the USA.
Great product! By 120reefkeeper on 2/22/2016120reefkeeper would recommend this product to a friendWorks very well! No more sucking on the end of a hose!
Makes siphoning SO easy! By Miche on 8/4/2015Miche would recommend this product to a friendThis gravel washer is so easy and intuitive to use; insert the washing end into your aquarium, squeeze the ball. I simply squeezed once and the water came streaming out! They should have had these years ago - I'd have changed my water more often. LOL

With the squeeze the medium is 10" long and the large is 15" long. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
How big is the connector on the other side of the squeeze valve? I would like to add more hose to extend it.
