You can get a 75' one on amazon for $80 shipped.With all the water changes added into weekly maintenance with EI dosing going on in my tanks, it's really becoming quite tiresome (I hate to sound lazy, but I am :hihi: ) hauling 5 gallon kitty litter buckets of water up and down the stairs from the basement to well the lower basement-split level-in order to good sized water changes. The ten gallon is easy, one bucket siphoned out, one bucket dumped in, but on the 40 gallon I tend to do bigger water changes, and it equates to lots of running up and down the stairs with buckets.
Needless to say I've become really quite tempted to buy a Python. I'll probably end up needing the 50' hose in order to get to the sink I think could attach to it without any fuss, though 75' feet might be better to give me more wiggle room. At Petco it's about 90 bucks for the 50 foot hose, and 100 for the 75 footer. (Online its 93 for the 75 footer).
Are Pythons worth the price? For those of you who use them what are the Pros and Cons of them? They seem like they'd be such a breeze compared to hauling buckets up and down the stairs. Are there any similar siphon/fill systems at a more reasonable price?
I have a python (used only for fill) and its very handy. Just make sure your faucet fits the adapter.
