I'm one of the few who still use buckets. I like to use the waste water for gardening and hey, old traditions die hard. I keep spills to a minimum by having extra buckets and only filling about halfway. I was siphoning directly to a large tub outside using a garden hose, but its so easy to get distracted and drain the tank. I would have to agree that a python is probaly the most advisable method for water changes.

Wet socks are so unpleasent, especially if they are wet with fish water! Wear flip flops and keep a towel and a pair of dry socks and shoes nearby for when your done (ha ha).

I agree, nothing is more annoying than wet socks! I can't use a python, as my sink is not low enough, so I have to use buckets--no other choice. And I've overfilled about three times (you would think I would learn). Its so easy, as someone said, to get distracted, and it seems that bucket is overflowing before you know it!
