Re: [APD] The siphon saga continues...need safety shutoff!

Hmmmm.  I don't see how this would solve the
air-collecting-in-the-siphon-tube problem.  I think that's
a matter of water velocity--so smaller diameter tubing or
higher water flow, unless you stick a microvalve on top of
the siphon and pump out whatever collects there, which is
an easy way to start a sihpon on this kind of setup -- much
easier than snaking an airline up one side and trying to
get it to go to the top of the curve instead of the bottom.
