Default Bottle Wand

i have the bottle wand attached to my bottle bucket spigot via small piece of racking tube. the problem is when I go to turn the spigot on the water (test run) only goes to the wand then stops. If i push the middle part of the wand i get some flow but also a lot of air. how do you pros do it?

The wand has a little valve at the bottom that is intended to be depressed when it hits the bottom of a bottle. It makes for a less messy, less tedious bottling session than if you had to mess with the spigot for each bottle. The air should quickly purge when you fill the first bottle.
