This item works great!. Simple and easy to clean. The acrylic auto siphons are harder to clean and prone to cracking if exposed to the wrong cleaning chemical.
Nice gadget but...

IT looks and works well, the only but, and it is not a small one, is that the valve body is made of copper and that could induce a copper haze on some wines. It should be plastic in order to make it cheap . . .

7/21/2009 -- I've gotta say, i love your site, whoever is the webmaster/designer deserves a pat on the back.(1) If i was to just buy a 3 gallon bottle (the kind you buy at a grocery store to dispense water at home) would i have to worry about flavors from one batch carrying over to another batch?(2) What size stopper do the one gallon jugs take? . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank you. We work hard on our website, and it's nice to hear that it shows!1) Probably not. As long as it's food grade, it should be good unless you decide to make pickles in it or something silly like that. We can't speak for all plastic water jugs, of course. 3 gallons isn't very big, either. With the foaming that occurs during fermentation . . .

2/19/2006 -- Does the super siphon include anything like the tip you put on a racking cane to minimize trub movement?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it doesn't. It just sucks from the bottom. Very fast, however.
7/23/2005 -- I purchased everything from you for wine making, could you please tell me how to use the siphon tube...the one that you shake and it starts siphoning?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: First put the vessel you are siponing FROM higher than the vessel you are siphoning into; for instance, on a kitchen countertop, with the carboy on the floor. Next, put the copper end of the Super Siphon into the liquid you want to siphon, and the other end into the vessel on the floor. Shake the hose inside the liquid until it "crawls up" . . .
5/1/2005 -- When I make wine I always start with one extra gallon in the primary ferementer so that I have extra wine from the same batch to top off with when racking. After racking from the primary fermenter there is never a full gallon of a good wine left over. So I started using standard 750 ml wine bottles with #2 drilled stoppers with air locks to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The Super Siphon will fit, but it is rather large for the task. I would think the Auto-Siphon would be better. Another option is just to buy some commercial wine or wine from a previous batch (of a similar variety), to use for topping off.
4/10/2005 -- Does a racking cane attach to this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. Altho if you wanted to keep the hose straight within the fermenter, you could attach a racking cane, or any straight rod to the side of the Super Siphon.
