In my case, that assumption is not met. 
The tank is on a stand made of a sandwich of 
plywood, cinderblocks, plywood,
and it's only about a foot high.

The sink has built-in drain guards, so I can't 
snake the outlet end of the hose down the plumbing.

I do have a little powerhead in the tank, though,
so I will have to try Bill's system.

Thanks, all!
