View Full Version : Chop1 with Single External Siphon - What do you think?
18th April 2011, 18:30
Not sure if this has been done/asked before or if it will even work. I appreciate some comments.
The round bit is an external siphon in barrel which is supposed to control all the GBs. The second pic is an attempt to enable you to see through to the plumbing, taken at a different angle.
When I played around making this model I can see that levels of the GB will have to be very even. Oh I forgot to put a screen pipe in the middle to keep the drain hole free of roots.

Yes it has/is being done.....use search and look for "mega siphon"
There isn a good deal of info in this forum about mega siphons.
I hope this helps

Thanks Murray, yeah I have read a few threads about it but often they lack detail information and so for me at least the plumbing were hard to figure out.
FF, I checked the link and it says "The only real difference is that his siphons all empty water to one main return pipe that runs off into his shed to where his fish tanks are housed". So this is not quite the same because what I am thinking of doing is a single external siphon that is not in the GB. I tried to carefully observe what that Hawaii guy did in his setup but still pretty difficult to get details.
I still would like comments on this please. If someone has already done something like this then please comment on the pros and cons with some tips. Appreciate it, cheers.
BTW, I placed the FT nearest the GBs, and the Sump is the one bottom most in the picture.

Check the photo the latest 6 bathtubs empty into that 20 litre container and there's a syphon in there
