That makes sense.

I just use the python for refilling tanks. I'll buy 2 couplings and clamps. Thank you. You saved me some money

I'd get stainless steel hose clamps so they don't rust if you clean it, I've seen regular ones rust off in less then a week on my boats

You can get a water hose repair kit for like $1 that has the right threads and the same type coupler that the python system uses. I dont even use a python anymore. I just use the tubing, though I'm going to be getting 3/4" soon... drains much quicker.
