Python water changer

So I've been doing water changes the old school way- bucket and sink. We have been discussing getting one of the python water change things. It almost seems too good to be true.... So in all honesty does anyone have any cons with it??!

Yes, water changers can make you lazy because changing the water becomes so much easier and less time consuming.

I have the Python and find it doesn't always have the best suction force but could be a result of my water pressure at home. Otherwise it is great.

I have had my python for 20 years and love it. I use it on a weekly basis and it has definitely made my water changes much easier.

The only con I can think of is occassionaly you have to replace parts on it.

Pretty much the best. If you get it right you can get good suction and the natural siphon helps as well. And filling the tank back up is 100 times better. Would defiantly recommend.

I've had mine for a long time never an issue. I just create a vacuum by moving it up and down in the water column. Never had to replace a thing.
