What size tubing for siphon?
I want a longer than usual siphon, so I thought I'd make one. What diameter hose would I want for a 20 gallon tank? Are they normally made of clear vinyl? Are there better alternatives? I want to make it 20' or more, so I can drain directly out the door and into the garden. I will probably add a ball joint and a squeeze bulb. The vacuum chamber will be made from a water bottle, unless someone has a better idea.
