    Default Jet Siphon Operation

    Looking for information in regards to jet siphon operation. We received little info from the manufacturer and it's winter here in Canada so I would like to do as much research from my computer as possible rather than outside. Can you tell me what pressure to run the intake to the siphon at to start the transfer? What kind of transfer rate will you get approx? If you stop the flow into the siphon does the flow continue or does it require constant intake pressure? Anyone have a guideline/SOP/training precis they want to share? The siphon is a low level type with one and a half inch inlet and 4 inch discharge. Any help would be appreciated.
