For those still learning about bell siphons or for those who want an easily ajustable siphon this may help.

Some pint jars will fit air-tightly (with Teflon tape) on the top of a two inch pipe (see photo).  This way i can see what the siphon is doing. 

Ajustable height drain tube:

Connecting my drain tube to the outlet of the tub is a compression to slip adapter.  That in itself allows an inch or so of height adjustment. 

Then i added a second 1-1/4" sink drain tube with the threads cut off (see black arrow in photo).  That allows another 1-1/2" movement.
