Rated 5 out of 5 by Back Works great!
Attached easily to my python siphon and hose. A few squeezes and the water is running. Well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKlein1294 does exactly what it says it does.
This does start the siphon.
it's a little hard if you are using lower water levels (like in my snail tanks and such where a couple inches of space between the water and the top of the glass is required for laying egg clutches.) because it only pumps once. it doesn't hold the level after the pump, so it goes back down quickly.
wish the 1/4" adapter could hook onto the bulb while not in use, cause i lost it almost immediately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by orchidmaster Can help to start siphon for the most part
It's ok for the few dollars that it cost. Avoids having to suck on the end of a tube to get a siphon started to get the dirty water to flow out of a tank. Didn't pay much and didn't expect much. Does not appear to be too durable. Purchased it mainly to help prime the Diatom Filters that I have but this item is not capable of creating enough vacuum to get that going. If you only want to siphon out water from a tank through a tube that fits this diameter, it will do the job to get the flow started.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LarryNuke Didn't work very well
I purchased this to fill out an order to get free shipping. I have tried it a few times and decided it is more work than it is worth to me. I'll continue to start my siphon the old way.
