How to Make a Bell Siphon & How Bell Siphons Work

Hi folks. Have been asked a few times now how I make up bell siphons & also how they work.
They are fairly basic bits of gear & are VERY easy to make up yourself with a few basic tools.

This design is based on Affnan’s bell siphon improvements. Below is a link to Affnan’s Aquaponics webpage with detailed explanations on how his siphon improvements work as well as information on Bernoulli’s Principle,
