Is it a python?? :clapping:

I'm pretty sure you can get connectors (that are in plumbing or garden section) at Local hardware etc. Id take it there and get them to help you find the right one, they may even have tubing and connectors for that :thumbup2:

yes, i looked at this video and it says if you have exterior threading on the nozzle then remove the first washer only, but it only has one washer....

Does the actual brass piece fit?

If the brass piece does fit (size wise) but you need to take out the fat o ring and are left with flat ring just get a flat one at the hardware they are pretty cheap id say

You would need to measure the faucet to get the size

Lol, you need a female adapter to screw on to your faucet

The thread needs to be on the inside

I couldnt find the piece so I asked my brother in law to look for one. last night i used the python and let me tell you I....LOVE it,

no more buckets....instead of working on it for over three hours walking back and forth with a small plastic container over 50 times, i just stood back watched it empty then watched it fill, it was great!

 

it saves my arms, i have tendenitis in one shoulder and bursa in the other.

I suggest getting a  "Cleaning Claw for Lee's Ultimate Gravel Vac" it fits perfectly in the barrel of the Python & keeps curious fish from getting sucked in. Amazon & Ebay has them.

 

I clean my gravel without it when digging around to get out all the stuff....but I watch carefully (Years ago I had a goldie literally torn open by the power of the suction) then when finished gravel gleaning I pop in THE CLAW & can remove water without having to worry. Well worth the 8 bucks!!

I never hook the Python up to the sink while cleaning the gravel. I run the other end out the door into my flower bed & clean the tank completely. I get PLENTY of suction without all the water that is wasted when you hook it up to the sink. When the gravel is all clean I put on The Claw & finish removing however much water I want then REHOOK the Python to the sink & go about filling!!  Never leave the process unattended.....you can easily over-empty OR over-fill if distracted!!!!
