I bought a 50ft garden hose and a shut off valve for each end. I also bought an adapter for the kitchen faucet to allow the hose to screw on. When I want to vacuum the tank, I hook up the hose to the sink and fill it with water, shut off both valves and then take the female end outside and open the valve on that end. Then I put the other end in the tank, open that valve and begin vacuuming. When done I put the female end back on the faucet, turn the water on and adjust the temperature as the water from the other end flows into the sink. Once the temp is right, I close the valve, add Prime to the tank and then open the valve to fill the tank. This has worked great for me even when there was snow on the ground. Lost a little heat with the door being cracked, but not too much. If you must have the waterbed gizmo, look at bed stores. I found one there and they were only $5. It sits unused in a drawer.

Hope this helps,
Jman
