    A battery operated completely waterproof and fully immersible gravel cleaner that can be inserted up to 10mm into the gravel, churning up the sludge and depositing it in a filter basket, returning the filtered water to the aquarium. Similar in principle to syphon action gravel cleaners, without removing water from the tank.
    Runs of 4 AA batteries (included), about 4 hour operational time.

    Pros
    Easy to use, no pipes/wires that obstruct movement
    Completely waterproof
    Ideal for removing leftover food, and cleaning areas where sludge/debris accumulates
    Effective removal of debris without need for topping up water afterwards
    Perfect for quick, between water change, clean ups
    Eheim quality, 2 year warrantee

    Cons
    Fairly costly tool (but it is Eheim)
    May slightly cloud water, this is temporary and water soon clear up
    Impeller is prone to jamming if debris such as leaves enter the unit, this is however easily cleared.

    Having used this once or twice a week for the past two month, I find this an extremely useful tool. My tank is heavily stocked, and has strong flow in most parts of it, however, areas where debris and sludge accumulate are quickly cleared by the Quick Vac.

    Sorry see it's a review and not for sale thread. My bad. I think this member is still active on here.
