For a small tank they maybe good but for larger tanks they are to slow just look at the size of the hose

I use my python on my 115 gallon tanks and my 120g tank, as well as all my others. I have no issues at all. 16 tanks, 1 python, life is good.

I use it on my 29g, 40g and 55g, works good but would like it to drain faster.

Well as I have said before I found the python rubbish

You only need to suck up a few bits of gravel and they get stuck in the tap connector

I had a python for over 10 years and after 6 months I pulled of the tap connector and just laid that end in the bath

It put the gravel vac part in the bin and replaced it with one of them gravel vacs you move up and down in the water to get the flow started

So it worked out I paid a lot of money just for a hose

I could have saved money buy just buying a long hose and the good gravel vac at the start

Another problem is if the vac part comes out of the water you need to keep going back to the sink tap to get the flow started again

I can't coment on other changers but the python it rubbish the clear part of the gravel cleaner doesn't even stay on the hose nicely

The aqueon water charger comes with a faucet adapter for sinks. Does this adapter work for most sinks?

Mine fits on my kitchen faucet, but not the one in the bathroom. I live in an older apt building though.

I had the aqueon water changer for all of 2 weeks and it got thrown in the basement never to be seen again, it had terrible suction and was a massive waste of water, I ended up hooking a garden hose to a real gravel vac to drain and hook up the same hose to the kitchen faucet to fill,

I don't use the faucet for the venturi effect as I was thinking it might have created more pressure for cleaning and doing the PWC but it doesnt on my end. Also too much water going out, so I now just opened the sliding door or out the window when I move the aquarium to the new place. Just need to suck on the end of the hose and that is all. It does have a small
diameter hose & the reason for all the above
