Water Changer

Hi. I am trying to build my own Aqueon Water Changer. It's not available in the UK or Ireland so, as usual, I have to import. The weight of the 50' hose is pushing the shipping price up. I can source the faucet end but can't seem to find the other end. Anyone know where I could get the siphon part that goes into the tank. Is there anywhere that sell Aqueon spare parts??. Thanks, Ian

Just buy a regular aquarium vacuum and attach a hose connector to it. It will then attach to a garden hose.

I thought about that. It would work for me as I kinda have that set-up already. I have a length of garden hose attached to my water vac. It's the refilling from the tap that I can't do with it. I throw the hose out the front window of my house when draining and the tap(sink) I use is at the back of the house. I would have to wrap up the hose and move it through the house and attach it to the sink tap. I know it sounds lazy but I'm sick of carrying big water containers. My back is tired of it too...haha. I can get the tap(faucet) part of the Aqueon very cheap, so I thought I could build the rest fairly cheap, have the g.hose already.....
