    Default Python ?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey everybody,
    As you may know, I am in the process of setting up a 40 gallon breeder in my living room...my Python siphon will just reach from the kitchen sink to where the tank will be located...

    When I go to do water changes, I'm thinking of something different to vacuum the tank...instead of using the suction action of the water flowing in the sink, I am thinking of running that end of the python out the front door and into my flower bed/potted plants on the front porch...

    I could just use gravity to empty some water during PWC's, but I doubt this will be enough pressure to adequately vacuum debris....and it will take a LONG time that way..I'm thinking some small electric pump would do the trick, though I am not sure how it would hook up to the faucet end of the Python, just yet...

    Does anyone use a method similar to what I'm describing when REMOVING water from their tanks?...I would still use the Python in the traditional manner to FILL the tank...if so, please share what you came up with...

    Please and thank you

    I got the aqueon water changer so I'm not sure if this works for the python, but can you attach a house to the python's outlet (at the sink end) so instead of the water draining from the python into the sink, it would go into the hose and out the window?

    I run the water right 0ut the wind0w, myself. Just make sure the drain end is well bel0w the height 0f the tank and it will pull plenty well. I live 0n the 2nd fl00r, I let the h0se g0 t0 ab0ut a f00t ab0ve the gr0und and trust me when I tell y0u that I have pulled gravel right 0ut 0f the tank and dep0sited it 0utside. d0n't let that baby hit the sand, y0u will c0me up shy!

    I probably am not being clear about what I'm asking...I will be able to stretch the "faucet" end out of my front door, into a flower bed....and the pickup-tube end into the tank...I could suck on the faucet end, to get the water flowing to the outside, and gravity would take over the emptying of the tank...just like a drip acclimation set-up...but the flow will be terribly slow, and not strong enough to vacuum up any debris, I'm afraid...make better sense?...I would want to use some sort of pump on the faucet end, to more forcibly pull the water through the hose

    Water is pretty p0werful stuff, br0tha. Y0u sh0uld be fine. If y0u want t0 test the te0ry, get a 5 gall0n pail,put s0me fine sand in it, fill it water, raise it t0 the height y0u are g0ing t0 be w0rking with and give it a g0. Then y0u will kn0w f0r sure and it w0n't be testing 0n y0ur rig.

    I know gronlaura uses a pump to remove large quantities of water from her tank, I can't remember if she siphons first with the python then removes the remaining water with the pump or not though. I empty mine into a utility sink but found that once I have a siphon started I can shut the faucet off and the siphon will continue without wasting water. I would think a drop of 52" would be sufficient.

    C0uldn't hurt t0 get 0ne but it d0esn't take much t0 get it g0ing by sucking 0n it, just watch the water c0ming up the h0se. We all l0ve 0ur fish but I'm sure s0me tank water in the m0uth is a bit much t0 pr0ve it, L0L.
