The Python is ready to use as soon as you open the bag.
It comes with either a 25 or 50-foot long hose, so you can reach a faucet no matter where your aquarium is.
The Gravel Tube:
Made with durable clear plastic the vac itself is pretty standard but does the job well. Nothing original or special here just a short tube used to suck up all the dirty debris off the bottom of your aquarium.
The Python system comes with a few adapters so it can connect to almost any faucet. That said, it doesn’t connect to all. In fact, I just recently moved and it won’t connect to any of my faucets. So if you’ve recently purchased a new home — maybe check your faucet.
Additionally, the faucet pump allows you to change the direction of the water with a quick pull and turn. This way you can fill and/or remove water quickly without ever having to use a bucket.
Lastly, it has a switch located near the gravel tube which you can turn to quickly stop the siphon, in the event of any unexpected events that sometimes occur — ever sucked up one of your buddies?
The Hook System:
This hook doesn’t come with the Python Water Change System and is available for purchase separately. The hook allows you to place the gravel tube in one spot typically when filling a tank, so you don’t have to hold it. This is great for a large aquarium where the filling process may take a little while.
Use the hook — have a coffee and watch your tank fill effortlessly.
