I know this isnt a DIY question, but I couldnt decide were to post, so here it goes....

I have a python water system changer, and I was wondering with 50 feet of hose and having 5 tanks about 5 feet off the ground, what would be the best way to manually start the suction (so I don't have to waste water hooked up to the faucet)?

I actually usually just start with it hooked up to the faucet, and then when the tank water starts coming through, I disconnect and turn the faucet off.

I just watched the how to video on there site and I don't think any suction is required.

As far as I can see the water coming from the tap creates a suction, if I understand it correctly.

Wish I knew about this years ago... I am going to get one...
