    Default Better Python faucet adapter?

    0 Not allowed!
    I've been using my python for more than 5 years now with no major problems until a few months ago. In the last 3 months I've gone through 4 faucet adapters. In particular, the top piece that connects to the sink keep cracking. The first one broke because of a dog that chewed on it, but the new ones (including the one I just cracked today) are clearly made out of a cheap plastic and are easy to crack.

    Are there any alternatives out there for a better faucet adapter? maybe made of metal or at least better quality plastic? The only ones I can find are from python or Lee's and they are both almost identical and I've broken both types.

    Any help would be seriously appreciated.

    I went through 2 of them and ended up getting this. Hasn't broken yet. I would prefer one made of brass but I have never seen one. It does require an adapter to connect it to the hose, but it works great.
    Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

    That looks almost identical to the one I used from Lee's. I've heard that they used to sell metal versions but I can't find them anywhere online.

    I use a waterbed adapter. and ditched the python hose for a rv/camper hose.

    The waterbed one seems to be a harder plastic, more durable, but it does leak a bit. Nothing near airtight.

    But, hasn't broken yet, and I really use it quite a bit.

    I've been using a waterbed one for a while now. Some of them from the 70's or early 80's are made out of some sort of metal. I was able to get one for free out of a relative's basement.
