Came across a good doc that covers different types of siphons in-depth.

It didn't have Affnan siphons... If you are going to siphon, it is the only way to go!

It's covered - he shows the bell siphon with the reducer and contributes it to Affnan - he just refers to it as a bell siphon for the rest of the doc.

There is a link there to Affnan Siphons.....at the end. A lot of good info, would save a lot of effort to just give this link each time someone has a Siphon problem.

I have been using affnan siphons in my GH AP system for over 2 1/2 years... not one single problem.... I am running timed flood and drain.... and CF at least once a week for 4+ hours...

if your going to run a siphon, affnan is the way to go

I have to laugh though, these siphons are simple aren't they, only a 9 page document in depth document explaining how they work.. :lol:

They are simple to make though - and mine have been extremely reliable.

Not always simple...... Sometimes they take hours hours of mucking around and playing with them to get them working..

Adjusting the flow to get them to trigger and stop? That is the fun part while drinking a beer (or beverage of your choice) waiting for the bed to fill/empty and enjoying your AP setup.
