well your idea's not bad though. Hardware stores do sell tubing however, that is safe for filling your tank with. You could probably find compression fittings, fit that compression fitting to your sink fitting and the other end to your tank and it should work. Would probably cost you around 25 bucks, and prolly more assembling work. However i am unsure how big compression fittings are so you may end up spending alot of time letting the tank fill even if its little effort spent filling it.

yeah they sell the clear tubing by the foot for I think 31 cents and foot....i need about 30 feet...its the same kind of tubing found on most siphons......i wouldn't care if it took 2 hours to fill 20 gallons worth of water....gotta be better than lugging buckets with a strained back.....ugh

I do not always gravel vacccum when performing water changes. For those times, I do as auntKimmie suggests. I use a vinyl hose sold for use with recreational vehichles attached to a pump. I drop the pump into the water and it quickly sucks out the desired amount of water. I then use Pyhton to fill the tank. Could always have a storage tub of prepared water but my small apartment is crowded enough with tanks,thus the reason for using the python for refilling as opposed to the same pump and hose used for draining. I DO use the python for gravel vaccuming when needed.
