How to Sink a Tube

(Permanent Link)
Use water preassure and bore a hole using a jet on a garden hose, slip in the plastic pipe, fill the hole with sand, then run a bucket of water down the tube. It will let the sand settle and fill voids. Occasionally the tube will clog you just wiggle it up and down and inch or so to clear it. Get about 12 foot of the tubing and to prime is you just start with the end coming from the ground and wind it into the bucket under water and chase the bubbles out, then plug the bucket end of the tube with your finger and keep it under water, unwind the tubing from the bucket and if its on a concrete block or something and you have the tube filled with water, no bubbles when you let go of the inlet under water the siphon starts, then tape the tube in a way the that the line doesn't fall out of the bucket.

Mine actually would start just by dumping a full bucket of water rapidly into the one for the tube and a strong stream at the base of the inlet tube will increase the preasure for a moment enough to force water into the tube and away you go...

That little cantaloupe was tasty.
