Simo,
Don't bother to answer that. Found it in your other thread! 25mm elbow! I must say, your siphon looks very neat!

Hey there Simo!
Nice work and thank you for the contribution!

I was wondering is there an elbow under the stand pipe or does it lead straight into the bigger drain pipe beneath? BEcause i couldn't get the siphon working(starting and stopping properly) if there was no elbow or pipe reduction under the standpipe(under the GB).

Thank you!


drains straight out, the side port on my bell is just because my GB drain out the side thought another elbow down to the drain pipe. There is no water trap or restriction other than the eblows it should work just draining straight down as the funnel creates all the restriction you need.

The good thing about science is that you don't have to believe in it for it to be right.

Check out this other thread on Siphons if you haven't already. Pretty instructive.

Hi, Thanks for the guidance.

I have problem with my siphon. It stops when water level down about 1/4 from top and raise up again so it never reaches the growbed bottom.

What cause of this problem & how to solve it?

Thanks in advance
Samuel

If you are talking about a bell siphon, then the only reason I could see for the siphon to stop once it initiated, is if air is being drawn into the bell, breaking the vacuum.

What sort of fittings/plumbing do you have underneath the siphon?... Can you upload photo's of all the components, ie: the bell and the fittings/pipework exiting the siphon (ie: the drain under the grow bed)
