i can technically do that... but instead of a garden, the water would drain onto my deck lol... and if someone happened to walk under said window while a water change was in progress... yeah i just drain it into the sink.

I have one, but have not used it yet. I get some exercise carrying buckets. Only takes an extra ~15mins (guesstimating) when I do the bucket method. I like the satisfaction of having it available though

I must say I am disappointed. The python has a much stronger suction. In my house this one is about 50% slower then the python version...
The Python brand has better reviews. From what I read it's a better unit. Too bad it's a little harder to find.

This is all you need to convert the Aqueon. Its $7 for double the performance.

I love mine. I only use it to fill since my python empties faster. I have 10 tanks in my basement and I do them all in one evening. I have 2 on the main floor and get those done the same day. That is if I'm not cleaning filters or get sidetracked somehow.

You can also order directly from their site. Just like this nice lady, I like to get dressed up when I do my water changes !

HA! I thought the same thing when I watched this and the Python videos! Doesn't anyone wear sweats for a good how-to video anymore?
