Python Won’t Fit On My Bathroom Sink. Alternatives?

    My tank is in a very inconvenient place that makes lugging buckets of water around a chore (and possibly a big mistake). I really want to get a python, but I don’t see any way I could fit it on my sink. I’m at work right now so I have no way of taking s picture, but I found a very close model online. What are my alternatives? Are there adapters for sinks without thread marks?​

    I've never see pythons suited for this type of sink before without threads. Have you tried using ducktape lol.

    Can you see if you can take of the aerator? I had to remove the aerator in order to see the threads on the tap.

    You indeed have to remove the aerator off any tap to expose threads.

    If you don't know what they mean by aerator its the piece on the bottom the water comes out. It should just screw off

    I have the same style, remove the aerator, screw on the python brass adapter, hook up the python and away you go, I've since moved my tank onto the main floor so I run the python out my front door onto the lawn, hit the syphon once or twice and voila... to refill I use prepared RO water so I don't do the sink / tap fill, drop a pump in a 30 gallon container and pump it to the tank.
