Used to clean and fill your tank by attaching to an existing water faucet.
These siphons can be purchased with different lengths in both the siphon tube and in the hose. Siphon tubes come in sizes ranging from 20 inches to 72 inches. Hoses come in sizes from 25 feet to 100 feet.
I love this thing... it keeps my floor from getting wet and it does a great job for filling and draining the tank. With a large tank it takes a lot of the burden out of water changes and gravel vaccuming. I only wish all the parts were a little more sturdy... if they had used brass for all of the hardware that would have been nice.
Just bought my Python for my 75g...best thing ever for water changes. The suction is usuable though not great (due to where my sink is in regards to the tank). I used the PetsMart pricematch and bought it for $25 (their in store price was $40...online $25) Just had to remove the aerator from my kitchen faucet (one of the extendable arm faucets...pulls out from the sink) and hook up the Python. Mine also came with the upgraded Brass fitting. Now water changes are easy once the kids go to sleep...an incredible product
"Couldn't imagine a water change on my 75 without it!"
My python purchase was one of the best investments I have made. Doing water changes is as easy as turning on the faucet, and sitting on the couch, while your tank drains and refills. I couldn't imagine lugging huge buckets of water back and forth between my 75G and the sink, not to mention the water I'd probably spill on the floor int he process. If you've got a larger tank, then get yourself a python. Trust me it'll save you a lot of time and effort doing water changes!
This is the best investment I have purchased for my hobby. My wife loves it too, because there is no more water on the floor or buckets laying around. Yes, the cost can be high but that is due to the dealers. Go straight to the sorce and save cash.
We just got our Python in the mail today and tried it out. It works like a charm. It's easy and fun (weird but true)!!! It was the best $30 I ever spent. A LOT better than a bucket and a million trips back and forth. Try it ... you won't be disappointed!
i purchased mine from petsmart. I got the 25' python for 25 bucks. all you have to do is go petsmart.com and get the online price and go to petsmart and they will most likely match the price. i get mose of my stuff this way. It's like have a 30-40% sale all the time. great invention that saved my back! highly recommended!
