Types of Siphon/gravel vacuum do you use?

So what type of vacuums do you guys use? I just got this cheap one for now, where I have to fight with the pump to to get the water flowing.

I kind of want to get a better one in the next few months, i have just a cheap one at the moment, but I have to spend almost 5 minutes each time just to try and get the pump to start draining water, where in that timeframe I could already have already have done the water change.

im not sure what brand I have , but i know pythons are nice (for bigger tanks atleast)

I just start mine by sucking on it with my mouth...like a staw yummm! hahah, just stop sucking when it goes over the rim of the tank, unless you want some yummy fish water in your mouth...but really if you rinse and dry the syphon every time after you use it, I dont see how its gross...and im not going to spend 5 minutes on all of my 8ish tanks trying to get the dang thing to start sucking! haha

This is what I use and it's been working really good. It's the only top fin product I can recommend.
