Tap to Tank Water Changer

All, what is the best Tap to Tank Water Changer. I see the Python is popular, but any others that may be cheaper. Any drawbacks to the Python? Likes or Dislikes of this brand or any others? Also, when you add water conditioner (dechlor), do you add it while filling the tank or after using the Tap to Tank changer? Thanks for the help.

There is also the aqueon water changer. They have amazing reviews on amazon. I think it is slightly cheaper than the python one.

Aqueon is cheaper and does the same thing. I have one, it's great.

When you use this, you would add dechlorinator to the tank after draining the water and before you refill. You'll add enough dechlorinator for the whole volume of the tank, not just the water you are replacing (check the bottle for dosages) and then refill.
Every living thing is significant.

I have the aqueon one and I have to say my old python was waaay better quality. My aqueon has started leaking where it hooks to the faucet at all the conection points and I haven't even had it for 6 months. I replaced the rubber seals and it still leaks. I will most likely buy a python again soon.
