    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.

    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.
