This simple siphon device will make water changes one step easier than previous methods. Just use your present hose from Python style water changer, remove the gravel cleaning tube and attach hose to hose fitting.
Set intake tube to desired height, and walk away to do something else without worrying about when to stop siphoning. Fits on all standard glass aquariums 5 thru 180 gallons. With a Powerhead it will pump through
your existing Faucet Pump (Python) device with the faucet shut off. (Faucet Pumps can waste large amounts of water to generate enough suction to drain tanks which are at an equal or lower level as the faucet. Stop
sending costly additional water down the drain just to drain some water from your aquarium). Or use as gravity drain (without powerhead) to a lower position than the tank you’re draining. Yes, this is a very
simple device that you can make yourself from standard PVC fittings, and we will even give you the plans if you’d like to, but it is priced it low enough for it to be just as easy to get one from us.
Plus you’ll get the right fitting hose barb, and powerhead adapter, and siphon starter bulb. When you are ready to re-fill the tank just unplug the powerhead (if using) and turn on the water faucet and fill
through the drain tube back into tank. No need to hold the hose from falling out of the aquarium. JSSSP is a very handy tool for those with larger Aquariums. Doing big water changes is now a few minute chore instead
of an hour of labor.
