What they neglect to mention in the Python owners manual...
This might be my screwup....
I bought myself a python today and was enjoying my first bucket-free, mess-free water change when all hell broke loose.
I had finished vaccuming and draining and was switching to fill mode... ok... close the valve at the far end... go to the sink... set the water temp... change it to fill mode... head back to the tank... open the valve... hmmm no water coming out... go back to the kitchen.... OH MY GOD!!!
Looks like the threads aren't as strong as I thought they were... the fill/drain adapter had blown itself off of the faucet, landing on the floor, and high pressure water (from the hose no less) was spraying onto the ceiling!
From now on I'm going to make sure the hose is in the tank and the valve is open before switching from drain to fill mode.
It still beats buckets...
