That's what I did. A gravel vac, and old bit of garden hose and a $2 hose connecter. Works well.

Gravel vac's bit of hose gets half of garden hose connector, garden hose gets other half, join them together = DIY python.

Hi i bought a long length of tubing you get for your external filters or pond filters,then bought a cheap bowl which fitted in the kitchen sink{this bowl is only used for the fish and NOTHING else!}I then use a cheap pond pump,to pump the water to me shed,into a 20 gallon water container,then its dechlorinated and the temperature equalised,once full i then simply pump it into me tanks using the same pond pump! I have used this method on my old six footers and could change 80 gallons of water in an hour!

I got my local window cleaner round and he dropped his hose straight in. I chose him as I only use RO for my fish tanks. As the window cleaners now have to us Ro it was the easiest thing for me to do.
