The first time I used this it was hard to get going. But now I have gotten the hang of it and it leaves my gravel nice and clean and is very simple to use. I was disgusted seeing how much debri came out of my gravel. I almost didn't buy this because of the one bad review. But I needed a siphon and it was the only one walmart had. I don't know what happened with the person that wrote the bad review because it works great! I am glad I purchased this.

I don't understand why the other reviewer found this product so difficult. All I did was push the tube over the end. Of course it is hard to slip on because you need it to stick to the siphon so there is no leak of air. It's a good product. I have a couple of these and they work fine! It's not that difficult.
