An update from my earlier post -
I need to get me one of those python water changers, but the kitchen sink would need a faucet change. I wonder if it would work if I ran a long one to the basement deep sink?
Over the weekend I purchased (on sale) a 50 foot garden hose safe for drinking and used it with the deep sink in the basement. I did this because I wasn't confident on the length needed or how messy the whole process would be. I figured it would be easier to return a hose down the street than anything ordered online. Turns out it worked great! It was simple to siphon water out and refill the aquarium. I like that I can do the refill much slower than when I used the 5 gallon bucket. I also ordered the python facet attachment from chewy.com for $5 and change. I'm hoping when that comes it will work with the hose.
