One more thing.  Make sure the return line is above the water line.  This
makes it much easier to prime and you will never have to turn the filter
upside down.  Simply attach all lines, with valves closed, then, open them
both at the same time.  This ususally is enough to start the siphon.  If
not, its easy to suck. Then, simply plug it in when the canister fills w/
H2O.   btw, i think the new fluval kits come w/ a siphon starter. Do they work?
