(I had one of these adapters back in the 70's when I had a waterbed.)
First, you need to determine if your faucet has a thread on aerator. Most faucets, especially kitchen faucets have this, but many lavatory faucets do not. You need a hose adapter that will thread on to your faucet in place of the aerator that the Python/Aqueon adapter screws onto.
Best way is to remove your aerator and take it to your local home center or plumbing, heating, electrical supply and get the appropriate hose adapter.
I have a non-standard faucet on my kitchen sink that I can't get a hose adapter for, so I'll just be quietly jealous of the Python/Aqueon users....Although I do stuff the gravel siphon hose into a garden hose that runs out the front door into a flower bed so at least half the battle is won!
