Is this good?

I am in the market for a cheap gravel vaccum.

I found this vaccum is it good?

Here is a link

Does anyone own it or any better ones that are cheap.

Thanks

Looks good..do you know if it has a bulb to start the siphon or if you have to do the dip and raise to start it?

Looks like it has a plunger/pump type thing to start it, we used to have one of those and it was a pain in the bottom to get to work. In order to get the siphon started you have to repeatedly pump the end of it, if suction stops halfway during your water change you might find it hard to start it going again (we did when we had one anyway).

If you want to give it a go I'd say do it, it's a cheap thing so you wouldn't lose much by trying. If possible though I'd suggest getting one with a squeezer ball as they seem to work much better.
