View Full Version : Power outage

08/02/2006, 10:21 AM
I have an 800gph overflow on my tank. I have the machine that keeps suction going and will help get things started when the power goes out. This morning power went out overflow did not start automatically, I had to do it manually. Any suggestions???

get a drilled tank ^^

even tho a power outage shouldent cause an over flow toloose siphone anyways.... its built to hold water so that the u tube always stayes covered.

that airsucking pump you have is to prevent microbubles from building up in there..it isnt reallly strong enough to restart the siphone instantly

I will agree that it is not strong enough to restart, that is evident by this morning. i dont think drilling is an option since the tank has been up and running for 8 months now?

I agree the siphon should not break in an outage.
