I am really confused... If you keep the faucet RUNNING it does not continue to flow water up the hose into the tank??? AND when the water is running, it actually SIPHONS water FROM the tank??? Lord that must take three hours!

No, it doesn't flow water into the tank. The Python has a switch that siphons water out of the tank. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish to drain and fill the 55 and 29 gal tanks with a 50% change.
