The Python is the best invention EVER!
I've had mine for 9 yrs now. I also have a helpful hint when you eventually have to replace the hose. After years of use, and there really being no way to dry out the inside of the hose, I got some green spots inside which looked like mold. Instead of going out and spending alot of money again on a new Python, I simply went to Home Depot, got clear hose, took the attachments off the old hose, and put them on the new hose. Had to warm the plastic up a bit on the new hose to get it around the attachments, but voila! Instant new Python! And it cost me only $11 for 40 feet of hose!!!
Oh and I also recommend getting the brass faucet attachments. I found the plastic ones to be a pain and also stripped easier. The brass ones aren't that expensive. They're found with the Python stuff in your LFS
