Seen it done many times. I am not sure that I am correct but some people find it to be risky. Reason being is if the power goes out or you trip a GFIC, the siphon is still going and pulls excess water into your filter and it's not pushing anything out. Not sure its really an issue but I know some people say it's not the best idea.
