my tank is upstairs. i have no faucet up stairs this makes water changes more of a chore than fun... for now i have been doing it with a five gallon bucket. there has got to be an easier way any suggestions?
the 50 ft python is 55 and the bootleg lees brand is 49 plus shipping the 100ft is 90 plus shipping on kensfish... thats cheaper than youd find it in the store... i would measure the distance to see exactly how long you are going to need.. personally i think it woulkd be worth the 50 bucks to not lug water up and down stairs thats def how id be doing it if i had your situation
I have a piggy back question about the Python. It has one setting for removing water from the tank directly down the drain which is cool. The second feature allows you to reverse the flow and fill the tank back up. Is this what everyone does? I would think filling directly from the faucet would be a bad thing because you did not have a chance to treat the water? Or do you just refill the tank and add the prime/dechlor to the entire tank? The other option I see is to use the "fill" feature to just fill a few 5 gallon buckets next to your tank, treat those bucks, and then just pour them in?
Sweet! I think I'll bite the bullet and get one of these. 5 gallon buckets are a pain and messy. I'll just add twice the dosage of de-chlor before I re-add the water direct from the tap...Then I hope I'll be good to go without harming fish with a temporary dose of chlorine!
I use a 2500 l/h powerhead with 1/2 inch pvc flexiable hose for draining and another one with a quick change connector to my sink for filling with a shut off valve at its end Length of hose determine by what your needs are. Fast and not messy
Wow lazy people! :lol: I've had a tank upstairs for as long as I can remember and I've had no problem lugging buckets around. I have a shower/mixer tap so it's easier to get the water to a similar temperature as the tank water. So the shower head seems the best option to me. :thumb:
