My favorite hose is the python hose, I’m not sure what they are made of but they’ve been the best out of several I’ve tried. You can buy the hose without all of the other attachments which is what I do.

I do use the python to fill my tanks but I go out the window into a drum with a syphon  when I drain or vacuum. We use the water for the garden.

I agree. They’re really flexible, but they don’t kink either. I’ve used other flexible tubing, but they always kink here and there.

I was out of the house anyway so I checked my local lowes and they just had stiff vinyl tube so when I got home I ordered a python gravel vac.  Price was good and the description said its the same hose as all their other products so we'll see how it goes when i get it.

I've been happy with python hoses - the only negative is they are expenses per foot. I have a couple of 25 feet hoses from them. I've tried cheaper tubing and they have a tendency to both pinch and grow mold (not sure why the python does not grow mold). Garden hoses as someone mentioned are always an option - they are a lot heavier and i worry if they are safe for fishes (yea as a kid like most people i drank from them but i would prefer they were label food safe).
