Question about Python Vacuum.

Hello,
I am looking to purchase the 25' Python kit.
I have heard that it is bad to add the dechlorynator right into the tank and that it must be added to the "new water" first,

How would I go about adding it to the new water using the Python if the water is coming right out of the faucet?

Here is what I am looking to buy:

Please let me know. Thank you.

Richard

I always thought that the python system doesn't work on saltwater tanks.

Actually, it works great for vacuuming and removing water for water changes.

No, I get water from my RO/DI unit in 5 gal. containers and prepare whatever I need in advance for the main tank. That's the plan anyway.
