High Water Level Siphon Outlet

Posted on August 31, 2010 at 8:00pm 2 Comments

Its been a long time since last I post anything here.

This post is on a new attachment that I made for the siphon in operation at very high water level in fish tank. Originally what I am trying to achieve is silencing the siphon outlet, however upon doing so with high water level situation the siphon operation and aeration of tank is compromise.

What I made here is a simple attachment that if required can be added to the siphon outlet silencing…

Thank you

Hi Affnan,

Just wanted you to know I tried a modified version of your High Water Level Siphon Outlet.  It's very quiet.  I can't even tell when my bell siphon is running!  Thank you again.

Hi Affnan,

More than 2 months and your bell siphon is going strong with no hiccups.  Thank you for putting all your effort into design and testing!

Hi Affnan,

Thank you so much for your response. I was reading your website and watching your videos for hours last night. I feel I have a very firm understanding of what I have to do now.

Hi Affnan
Sorry i replie so late but i am realy buisy with my AP.Thanks to you i finished the piping i think so.Now i am by the stones,do you think lavastones are ok because clatpeples are very expensive in Japan.Also how about the aeration in the growbed,i think the smallest pvc pipe with a lot of small holes are ok?

Hello Mr.Affnan
I want to ask you again about the hole from the higher tank to the lower growbed,the growbed ist h30 cm l 1056 cm w 72 cm 180 l
In Mr, Murrays CD the hole in the Fishtank was very high almost over the water in your Design it was very low and in the water.
I have a 360 l acryltank 60x60 180 cm.I think about a 6 cm fiting for a 50PVC pipe but where ang is it big enough?

Hi Affnan,

there is a new forum topic started around plumbing, basically asking for more info around plumbing a new AP system. Of course I think of you when it comes to plumbing. Can you jump in there and make some suggestions? Thanks!
