I want to just hook it to the sink and hook my python up and set the same temp on the faucet and just run it In my tank instead of filling a bucket up adding declorintor and pouring the bucket in? I don't know if the unit takes out all the bad stuff out like declorintor??

All you do, and here is what I do step by step on all the big tanks that me and my brother maintain.

Step 1: run faucet and stick a thermometer under the water and adjust the temperature 2 degrees above tank temperature.

Step 2: Dose for 60 gallons of water, in this case 1 capful and a little extra.

Step 3: hook up end of python to the faucet (I have a faucet with a slick end, so I took off the adapter for the tubing and hook the tubing directly to the faucet) preferably stick the side of the python with the vacuum tube (big ol thing) and stick it on a rock or something to break up the flow of it coming in.

Step 4: wait for it to fill up! And once it is at the level you want, cut of the flow and empty the python into the tank. This allows for a little over what you want, and it goes into the filters (if you HOBs that like to drain) and will level out your water.

And there you have it.
