PRIOR REVIEW - I have no idea how these other people are connecting this device to their faucets, but my house is semi-modern with Moen faucets including spray-type faucets in the kitchen and laundry room. We have attempted to connect this thing to every faucet in our house and nothing works. We also went to Home Depot in the hopes of finding an adapter for the stationary tub. They looked at us like we were from Mars. I have attached photos of the stationary tub that we were trying to attach the Python brass adapter to with no success. The diameter of the brass Python attachment is too big to screw into the attachment on the stationary tub hose. If anyone has any ideas after looking at the photos I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if anyone has photos of how they are successfully attaching this thing to a faucet in their house I would be very interested in seeing them. Email photos and suggestions to lauren9409 at hotmail dot com. They would be greatly appreciated.
So, basically, this thing is useless and unless I can find some sort of an adapter or another way to attach it to some other fsucet in our house, it is going back to Amazon. The lesson here....make sure you know that the Python attachment can fit on one of your faucets that are near your tank before you buy this.
One note that i would like to mention is that i am the least handy person. So when I tried to attach the No Spill system, I could not find the thread in the facet. I searched all over but could not find a way to attach it. I called Phython. They were closed. So i went back to siphon and bucket for the water change as I could not risk the fish to die. As I noted earlier about my lack of handy man skills, I was waiting for the call back from Phython to guide me. They called me after a few days and asked me to remove the aerator. I then found out from him that there will be a key with faucets which can be used to remove it. Now I knew where one end could get screwed.
In the mean time i had ordered the snap connector thinking it would help me with fixing it to the faucet. But it turned out that it helps me to snap on the system to the faucet.
Now coming back to my attachment to the faucet, I still could not fix it. So I took the brass adapter to HD along with my aerator ring. There they helped me and said that the brass adapter that i have from Phyton would work with my faucet and I did not need anything extra. I took one extra adapter just in case.
Back home there was success in fixing the adapter to the faucet and i was able to get water out of the tank. But there was lot of water spray around the faucet with water coming out from the sides. Filling the tank was unsuccessful. I flooded the bathroom floor and said this is not working. I went back to my bucket to fill the tank.
Now you might be wondering as to why I gave this a 5 start review. If you are still interested, read on.
After a week, I wanted to try this again. This time I removed the washers from the brass adapter and started with less pressure from the faucet. It did not siphon the water from the tank but there was no leak. I increased the pressure and it started working. Still no leak.Next was the turn to fill the tank. I closed the drain side and kept my fingers crossed. It was filling the tank and no leak. There were high fives all around. It was working. No more spills or buckets or cleanups.
So in the end it was 2 things that caused problems. First was the aerator and next were the washers in the adapter. There was nothing wrong with the product but my lack of knowledge as to how it works.
Thanks for reading my long review
I think this product just changed my life. I've only used it once, so keep that in mind. I have a 20 gal planted tank that i have to change 50% every week. Running the output to the sink. Awesome! Running the return back to the tank. Awesome!! I added Prime and adjusted ph as the new water went in. Fish did FINE. no problems. And best of all NO BUCKETS!! No. Buckets.
Only caution is if you do a deep gravel vac you don't want to suck up anything you don't want going down the drain (I have a disposal) like a rock that might sneak through.

I figured that next time I'd reduce the flow from my tap but this makes getting the right temperature harder on my taps. So I had a brain wave and found that a spare old powerhead I had could be fitted to the inlet. I then filled my large bucket in my sink and made sure the temperature was right and then added the treatment. I then dropped the powerhead and inlet into the bucket and with the other end over my tank I switched the pump on. This filled my tank nice and slowly without disturbing anything and with nice safe treated water.
This is how I'll use it as, although I know some people say it will be fine to use tap water directly, my fish didn't like it. The white plastic tap adapter that comes with it, which I need to use, isn't the best quality and I'm sure will need replaced at some point. I'll see if I can get a brass one. Other than that this is a great thing to have and does make water changes easier. But the price is just plain robbery. I mean seriously it's a hose and some plastic...£35.00 tops is what it should be..
I used it for the first time today. I quickly found the correct screw-on adapter for our kitchen faucet, hooked it up and played around with it to figure out what all the bits do, and I was promptly able to begin my water change.
So long as your aquarium is higher up than your faucet, this thing has some SERIOUS suction power. It hoovered 14 litres in about 2 minutes. I'll have to remember to turn the tap down so it's slower next time! Refilling was just as simple. I spent most of the time just getting the water temp right coming out of the faucet before flipping the refill switch, and the rest was a breeze. The whole process is pretty quick, especially compared to the bucket method.
We have a separate hot water tank for our mixer tap, and the fish are not bothered at all from any hot water tank contaminants, which was one of my concerns with this. Also remember to dechlorinate your tank for the replacement amount BEFORE pumping in the tap water, otherwise your fish my get some exposure to the chlorine coming in. I personally use seachem prime, which takes care of any heavy metals plus other bits too.
Over all a great product, well designed and I'm quite happy with it.
I'd mainly put it off because of the price, thinking 'it cant be THAT good'...How wrong I was.
This is an amazing product, albeit a simple one. It makes draining and refilling large tanks a breeze (you can even be in another room whilst doing water changes!)
Once you have it connected to your tap (I had no issues with this, but I would definitely recommend the brass adaptor) draining takes a few minutes max, depending on your water pressure.
Refilling is as simple as matching temperatures from the tap to your tank, and twisting the bottom ring to change it to fill mode. That's it.
My only regret with this, is that I didnt buy it two years ago! If it broke today, I'd definitely buy another one.
If you have an aquarium over 150litres, I'd absolutely recommend the Python. You will not be disappointed.
If this helped you in any way, I'd appreciate if you clicked the little thumbs up :)
The tubing is thick and there is a mix of plastic and metal parts, but it all seems good quality. The only problem for me is that (With a 50ft tube) you have to turn the tap on full to generate the pressure to vacuum the gravel at an equal performance to my little hand held/big bucket combination. With a large tank, this is a hell of a lot of water to waste - I am surprised that Python do not offer a suction "pump" to use electricity rather than water as (again) it's huge amounts of water down the drain.
Because of this, I find that I use my 20l bucket and gravel vacuum to empty the tank. It is more powerful in terms of cleaning the gravel if you have a hand pump attached to create the syphon and it's a bit more controlled. Then when I'm ready to fill up I use the Python. This saves a lot of time so I'm glad I bought it, but I do wish there was a better solution for getting the water out of the tank.
