Python Vac Vs Marina Aquavac, 25 ft Vs 50 ft

I am in the process of comparing Python vacuums with Marina Aquavac vacuums right now. I currently have 2 x 55 gallon tanks, one 35 and one 20, and I do it all with buckets. It's a lot of buckets. Takes my wife and I an hour to an hour and a half once a week. We'll have a 220 gallon tank soon so the buckets have to go.

The thing about the Python (I've heard the Marina Aquavac is actually sturdier) is 3 of the 5 tanks are within 25 foot range, one is right on the cusp, and one needs about 6 more feet. I'm hoping I can extend it with a short hose because I really don't want to buy a 50 footer when 4 of my 5 tanks are 25 feet from the tap or less.

I'm worried the 50 footer might be too long, as for most of the tanks there will be 30 extra feet coiled on the ground. Will it still siphon with all that excess hose?

They do make a 10 and 20 foot extension for the Python. In any case it will still vacuum with the added distance.

My tap only seems to have around 1/4" of threading. Is that enough? Doesn't seem like much.

So it should fit on this sort of faucet?



drhemlock2, if you google them, they sell them all over the place. I'm looking online in Canada so my links probably wouldn't do you much good.

Yes, the adapter that comes with the faucet adapters has a piece that unscrews to reveal the female end

I was just worried there wouldn't be enough for it to screw on to.
