Hey Antonio... Cody here. Great product. I just ordered one to try out.
Thank you so much @ReeferBean (Cody) - We'll get that shipped out for you tomorrow. You should get it by the weekend - just in time for a pre-Christmas water change and sump cleaning.

I think you all are providing a nice service to those who don't want a 3d printer in their house.

It makes small attachments and parts much more affordable.

Good job!
Thank you @dantimdad - we try to make a quality product and offer it at a reasonable price.

I thought the same thing - I took a piece of ½" (?) ID vinyl tubing cut at a slight angle and have been using it as a detritus vacuum for the last 5-7 years. The only problem is that it has a tendency to get clogged.
To be honest, that's where this idea came from. We was doing the same thing. The problem was that it took forever to get every last bit of detritus sucked up with such a small outlet. Solved that issue with the MJV :)
