nice, I went the simple route and ran my python in the ceiling and out by the slop sink in the basement. (tank is in basement as well)

so I turn the sink on and put the suction in the tank, flip the switch in the sink and add water, then put the python end back on the hook. simple fast and effective. Python always stays in the ceiling. suction end gets put in a bucket to handle the run off water from the hose.
I plan to hard plum it with PVC, but for now this is highly effective.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.
