So I was thinking that we should have a thread that people can tell how they siphon and give tips and tricks. When I was first starting with the siphon it took me around 2 hours of trying to get it started.
1. Get siphon and cover hose with thumb.
2. Dip siphon end into tank and let it fill with water. Remove full end from water.
3. Remove thumb from from end of hose and let drain until water flows through the hose. Promptly cover hose again.
4. Replace end of siphon in water and turn upside down. Let go f hose. You have started to siphon.
So how do you siphon?
(can this be made a sticky after it has a lot of replies?)
