Good luck and let us know how the metal adapter works for you.
The metal adapter is AWESOME!!!!
Finally I can clean my tank and then fill it with the hose. It took 1/2 the time to do it and I won't have a back ache. Not to mention I can get rid of the unsightly milk jugs sitting around my basement. ha ha
I will be able to clean my tanks a couple times a week now, it is so easy. I always did once but wished it wasn't such a process. I still am not a fan of the having the water running to siphon so I simply siphon with the old siphon like I used to (it runs into the bathtub drain) and I can be filling the first tank while the last of the water is draining from the next tank etc... I keep checking temps of course and clean out the gravel first by hand then just let the hose sit in the tank draining while I am filling the other tank. I LOVE IT!!!
Romad, get the metal adapter, it is wonderful.
It is $5.99 at Dr. Foster's and Smith. Once again, I must say how much I LOVE Dr. Foster's and Smith too. I was so disappointed when I got the kit and it didn't work that they gave me the metal adapter. They have the BEST customer service. I must say, I buy a lot of stuff from them and mostly it is because of the fantastic customer service. That is so lacking in other places, I don't even try other places anymore. If Dr. Foster's and Smith have what I am looking for it isn't even a question, I get it from them.
I can't believe I was actually excited to change the tank water today. ha ha They look so happy and the tanks are sparkling.
