Python VS Aqueon

Which is better? Is there any quality issues that would cause you to chose one over the other? Im looking to get a 25' water changer, the Python is $40 on Petco, but the Aqueon is $35. Is there any reason chose the Python over the Aqueon one?

i have the aqueon one and have heard the plastic part is more durable then the python but i haven't owned a python. my aqueon is starting to get dirty though i will need a new one soon. if you want to save money, you can get all the parts you need at home depot to make a 50 ft hose for around 15 dollars

I did a DIY one. It is exactly what I need, and with better parts. See my post here: DIY Aqueon / Python Faucet Attachment

Edit to add: The tubing can also be bought at Home Depot or Lowes, usually about a dollar or less per foot.

The main reason I was deciding on getting a premade one vs DIY was because tubing is around $2 here at Ace, so by the time i buy all the tubing id have spent close to buying a new one. But I will look to see if home depot is cheaper. Thanks!
