Tidepool SOS Overflow - starting it
OK...I must be missing something obvious. I THOUGHT I followed the directions...
* I poured water into overflow until it overflowed into the main chamber of the sump
* I then added water to the main tank until the level rose to 1/4" above the teeth of the skimmer box.
* I started siphoning through the tube, and let it siphon until it stopped.
* Then it tells you to start the pump.
That's where I'm obviously missing something. It pumps water into the tank until the sump is practically empty. I even tried manual starting the siphon while it was pumping from the sump into the main tank and it IS siphoning...but it's such a tiny tube. How is that tiny tube suppose to start the siphoning of all of that water from the skimmer box into the overflow box. It doesn't seem like it's physically even possible...so obviously I'm missing something.
