The thing on the end is used to connect two hoses together, the other is an on and off switch for a hose. tomorrow I'll take t apart and take pics

Actually I add my dechlorinator just as I'm starting to add the water back.

The hose isn't attached to the faucet when I'm siphoning. that end is out in the yard in the summer and in the bathtub in the winter.
When I'm through siphoning I bring that end in and attach it to my faucet to refill the tanks.

Re-assemble

1)screw on/off unit onto hose end
2)screw hose repair kit onto on/off unit
3)push siphon on to end
4) ready to siphon

Ready to do water changes arty0024:

5) Because my hose kinks when I attach it to my sink I use one of these on my sink faucet

Hope that clears up some questions. I've been using this particular apparatus for three years and the one before this longer than that. We moved and I left the old one with a friend.

There was quite a bit of talk about water changers in another thread.

I thought it would be a good time to bump this up.
