Do you need the faucet not just to initiate the siphon but to keep the water flowing? If not, then start the siphon without this piece and stick the end of the hose in the sink or out a window, etc. When you go to fill the tank, screw the hose to the faucet directly. It's not as easy to adjust temps this way, but if you know your faucet well enough, it works just fine. I might even make the argument that the python works better without this (at least in my experience with my tanks)...
If you need this part, look for water bed fill kits and you'll find a cheaper alternative to python or Lee's.
