Posed on reddit thought there might be interest here as well.

Found something similar in a google search but decided to make my own.

Makes the weekly %50 water change that much easier.

Parts were purchased at Lowes and cost @$20.

Filler venturi was purchased at my LFS, petco also sells it.

I was going to DIY one of these, but it came out to more than $30 and I had no gravel vac. With Python's available for $40 it wasn't worth trying to DIY for me.

As it was, I got one in a used bundle basically for free, (didn't know it was even included until they handed it to me) but never used it since I went full RO immediately after buying it.
