I've had my tank for about 1.5 year now and I have always found that water changes were tedious, slow and wasting a lot of water using the python. Anyone else feels the same?
Since I use a mag pump to mix my new water, I came up with the following idea and thought I would share it.
Pic 1 - Water going out of the tank.
Pic 2 - A vew of the sink.
Pic 3 - New water going into the tank.
Pic 4 - A view of the pump back in the mixing bucket.
Easy and quick. Total cost, minus the pump of course, about $30.00.
One thing to keep in mind when pumping water out of the tank is the syphon effect. If you don't pull out the pump as soon as you're done, water will continue flowing out of the tank.
