As long as your not looking to suck up the detritus and crap from the tank, water changes are a breeze using a sump tank. You don't even have to worry about the temperature of the water you put into the sump either because once you turn the return pump on it gradually feeds the water into the main tank and swings in temperature happen over a long period of time so the fish don't mind/notice.
