Where can you buy a hose extension for a python? Mine is only 25' and I would like to make it longer. Is there any thing like that or do I need to buy a new(longer) one?

I would think any hardware store should have that tubing.

I know Home Depot/Lowes have the huge rolls of vinyl tubing that you can cut to length.


Or get a length of PVC, put a barb fitting on both ends and you can cut python tubing where you want and extend it(cats have more trouble biting through pvc as well ). I have two lengths with a union in the middle so it breaks down easy but is still waterproof. That would be the cheapest route IMO and you can always use a piece of PVC around the house at some point.

I just checked both links. They are both out of stock. I guess I'll check eBay thank you.

That's true but are they also selling the stuff to connect it to the existing hose?

You just need 2 barb couplings(and 2 clamps). Cut python tubing and insert barb coupling, put new tubing on other end and do same at other cut end.

2x



+

Probably very cheap depending on how much you need to extend.

That is very smart! Do you need a Clamp of some sort to secure the hose to the coupling?

If it is just suction, not really. But if you are using faucet pressure, I would. If you shut valve off on hose, it may pop off due to sudden increase in pressure. Clamps are cheap(and again good to have around the house).
