As mentioned, the Meridian is changing water only, not vac'ing, and the Python allows you to vac with your water change, so their purposes are different. I solve the water wasting issue with my Python by turning off my faucet once the syphon has started, and then it is basically a regular gravity-driven vac hose.

As you have sand and do not really need to root around in it, and because you have a well and don't have to treat the water for chlorine, then the Meridian sounds like a time saver. You will have to suction off the solid debris that will accumulate, tho.
