I had trouble finding advice on this when I was Googling around (it's possible my Google-fu has become weak), so I thought I'd share what worked for me, even if everyone in the world has figured it out before me
In my house, there are a lot of weird, non-standard faucets and DIY plumbing (seriously, the builders even used the wrong size of PVC
in the wall behind the kitchen sink, which makes everything more fun). Pretty much the only standard piece of plumbing in the house is the shower. So when I got sick of hosing the mud off my Python every time I used it, I decided to figure out how to get it hooked up indoors, and the shower was my only hope.
I went to Home Depot and bought a Rinse Ace Snap'n'Spray
shower, the kind with a connector that fits between your regular shower head and the pipe coming out of the wall.
Then, at Ace Hardware, I picked up what looked an awful lot like the Python Universal Adapter
, except it was Ace-branded and called a 'Hose Connector For 3/4" Hose'. I don't see it on their website, but the box lists part number 40592.
Hook up the shower sprayer as per the instructions and make sure nothing's leaking.
Then unscrew the white hand shower from the end of the hose. You should be left with a threaded adapter that spins on the hose.
Take the rubber insert out of the hose connector. The outer piece of rubber fits snugly around the threaded end of the shower hose. Snug down the clamp so it won't pull loose. (The black ring in the photo is the o-ring that was on the shower connection. Might as well keep it.)
Then just screw the Python to the adapter.
Then the white hose stays connected to the Python, and hooking it up is a simple matter of clicking it in at the shower head.
