What's HD? I like the idea of using a pump, I'll look into it. How powerful do you think it'll need to be to lift it 1.45m high? Thanks for all your replies so far everyone!

Home Depot..
Doesn't have to be super powerful the weaker ones should have enough power. I didn't want mine to stir the substrate any, it's not real strong intentionally.

I have not confirmed this but ....

I read somewhere not long ago that some bed/matress stores carry an item that looks virtually identical the the faucet adapter on the Python. Only it's blue. And it's for filling waterbeds. And supposedly it is far cheaper. Just have to add a hose.
