well i just cancelled the order on the python ..lol
i was looking at the pictures of the python and realized what they were using was the same thing as a water bed kit
pure evil.. and robbery to charge 60 bucks for an aquarium vac coupled together with a water bed fill/drain kit..
anyways immediately went to my building and put one together easily. i tried it it works great i have clear 1/2 (dishwasher hose) tubing to spare because i do plumbing and all i did was try this out with a 2 inch pvc
pipe 24 inches long and made the transition from 1/2 pvc
to the half inch clear tubing..
i could not wait to post the results and i just got done cleaning
i assume if you know basic plumbing(pipe connections) you can easily modify this by adding cut offs any where you want....
this only costed me what i have laying around out in my building..why did'nt i think of this before
clear tubing is around 20-30 cents a foot and a water bed kit is 5-6 dollars
just by a cheap gravel vac that the 1/2 tubing will fit on and you will not need the pvc
pipe and maybe a small 25 cent hose clamp???
a female 1/2" garden hose coupling - $1.00-2.00 dollars so you can connect to the water bed fitting that hooks to the sink....
i love this and seems like this should be under 20 bucks total
