Python water changer

I have been looking into this. I'll need the 50ft in order to use it on both my 47 gallons.

My questions are. Does the python have a rubber adaptor that can be pushed over the whole tap? My Taps are old and it doesn't look like I have a screw thread on them.

Also are there other products like the python for cheaper that allow you to remove and fill the water?

Here is a picture of my tap.

That plastic bit on your tap maybe removable but it might not go back on!!. You may need to change the tap. A mixer tap is best because you can mix the hot/cold water to get the right temperature. What type of filter do you have??

The aerator will come off, it just needs some persuasion normally the first time.

I have a 50' python that was only used like 5 times( I switched to sw) I'll sell it and ship it to you if you'd like, for cheaper than you can buy it. Message me if you're interested.

In your last picture, what is the grey rubber part for. What does it screw into. I have the Aqueon and can't get a full seal from my tap. I'm thinking this might help???. I have that brass adopter but still can't get a proper seal and it is effecting the suction.....

Its the same connector, but it can have a rubber tube slide in and then you tighten down on it with the hose clamp.

Does the clamp end fit around the tap and the silver end into the python main body??...
PS... Sorry for hijacking OP but this might help you too!!

It's a thoughtful offer but I'd rather buy it from amazon

It's a Christmas present anyway.

Thanks I'll try to get those plastic bits off with a flat blade.
