PYTHON No Spill Water Changer, 7.5 m ( Brass Adaptor Not included )
About this deal
We actually preferred Aqueon’s handle to Python’s. Aqueon’s tube is also made of a more rigid plastic.
Being used to the brass faucet adapter found on the Python water changer, I was unsure as to whether or not this was my fault – I may have overtightened the plastic fitting. I have a 100 gal, 24” tall tank and a125 gal, 6’ long tank. I do frequent 50-80%water changes plus total tear-downs as necessary. I assumed the hook could be lengthened to enable deep hands-free water changes with ease. Instead it drapes just a few inches over the tanks.I ask because I will be putting one together to do weekly 80-90% water changes on a 60 gallon pond, and while I ultimately wouldn’t mind retaining my fishies for a few hours while monitoring the fill, a higher fill rate would obviously be better. Full disclosure: Gravel vacuums are little more than a tube and hose, a design repeated by every brand tested. Because of this, all gravel vacuums tested were able to both clean gravel and siphon water to some degree of effectiveness.
The components to make an improved Python water changer are available separately and I will help to show you how to put one together.
