    I dont have a sink in my basement.. but I was able to modify this product very easily so that instead of going into a sink-- water drains out the bottom into a hose that goes into my washer drain

    Just a tip. If you need a longer hose, you can buy any 1/2" ID 5/8" OD flexible hose to connect directly to the unit. I got a 50' hose from Home Depot for $15.

    Will this work with a faucet that does not have a screw-on faucet tip? I've seen these but I always assumed you needed the screw on type of faucet for them to work.

    So, is this a device that let your faucet drive the initial siphon and after you're done taking water out, you use this to directly fill tap water back into your tank afterward?

    2 questions:
    - Do you have to let water running?
    - Untreated tap water goes directly into the fish tank? Treating the water after it's been already put in the tank isn't something I'd do with my fish and shrimp.
