Default Siphon?

Hi all,

The directions for my siphon say that you only need to pump it two or three times, but I used it yesterday to fill up my test tube and I had to continuously pump. Can someone please tell me the best way to use one since the directions are hard to follow.

Was the hose end that you were using to fill your tube lower than the end of the cane?

You need to keep that part you are pumping OUT of HIGHER than the part you are pumping IN to.
