DIY Python no suction

Just bought some bits and pieces to make my own version of the python however when I run the tap I can't get the Venturi effect. Now either the tap adapter isn't sealing properly, the flow rate from the tap isn't fast enough or I'm missing something.

What am I doing wrong? Pics of the setup to follow.
