Question

Does this have the BRASS faucet conector?

50' Length
SKU: 78123

I know they sell this with a plastic faucet connector too. The picture you show on line is brass. I just don't want to end up with plastic.it doesnt hold up. I am not talking about the green plastic that the brass screws into.

Question

How do you remove chlorine, etc.?

If this hooks up directly to the tap, how do you treat the water to remove chlorine, chlorimines, etc.? Do you remove the fish, do the water change/vacuum, add new water straight from the tap, then treat the water inside the aquarium tank, then put fish back in? Thank you.

I was concerned about this myself, so I asked the local stores that use the python and what they do - the response was, add the chemicals before the water and don't worry about it, chemicals like Prime or Stress Coat can be added up to 5 times the recommended dosage, by the time you add the new water no harm will have come to your fish - just approximate the gallons removed, add the chemical and fill the tank.

answer 2
hi...you only need to remove about a 3rd of the water...and you can have tap water set aside in a 5 gal bucket ...letting the water sit for more then a few days will remove the chlorine..

this is how I clean my tanks..and my fish are happy.

I use a similar product for changing water. I only change 25% of my water every month. Once I have removed 25% of the water, I then place my chlorine treatment chemical in the tank. I use enough chemical to treat slightly more than the water I am changing. I then immediately add the new tap water. I have used this method 5 times now and my fish seem to tolerate it very well with no observation of stress.

I am sure that you could if the width of your exterior faucet is compatible, which i think it would be. My only question would be the temp of the water as most exterior faucets are only hooked to cold water lines i believe.

The tubing just needs to reach the floor from it's starting point in the tank. It'll siphon as long as the tank is above the receiving vessel on the floor or above the floor. Keep the tubing as short as possible.

Any siphon will drain the tank. Faucet water needs to be aged or treated before putting fish in the tank. Not a fast filler of water in the tank as the tube is only about .5 inches.

Question

How does it connect to faucet?

The nearest sink to my tank is my kitchen sink which has a button to switch between stream and shower options. Would I still be able to hook it to this sink or would I need to attach it to a bathroom faucet instead?
