Instructions to Start a Siphon on the HOB models BH-100F and 300F

Locate the John Guest speed fitting on the top of the overflow pipe going into the skimmer.

Insert the blue tubing into this fitting and on the other end slide the air tube going to the skimmer

pump into it. If there is a valve on top of the model that you have then go ahead and open the

valve now. If you do not have the valve then proceed with the next step. Fill the skimmer with

enough water to cover the pump by 2 or 3 inches. Make sure the water in the aquarium is above

the intake pipe. Now turn the skimmer pump on, when you see water flowing through the blue

pipe and through the clear air hose going into the pump remove the clear air hose from the blue

tubing. If your model has the valve then you should close the valve first then separate the blue

tubing from the air hose. Once the air hose is free to suck air the skimmer will start making

micro bubbles. When the skimmer is new it will create an excessive amount of micro bubbles

that will form and stick to the acrylic walls of the skimmer. It maybe necessary to perform the

siphon start up a few times during this break in period. This is a normal function of any protein

skimmer and does not mean you have a defective unit. Please be patient during this break in

period which can take up to 3 to 4 weeks.
