How do you clean a sump?

I don't have one, but the thought never occurred to me until just now. If it's the low point, how do you clean it out? Python would do it I guess. How do you guys clean out your sumps?

Python. I have two tanks on one stand and I don't know how I'd clean the bottom one without the Python.
