Quick Way To Siphon Liquids
Ordinarily when you want to siphon water you have to use a pump to get it started. Sidney Stubbs came up with a simpler solution that lets him make use of an ordinary air or water hose.
  He cuts a slit diagonally 2/3 of the way through a hose, then bends the hose and lays it down into the water to be siphoned. A wire is used to adjust the bend in the hose so the slit stays open enough to create vacuum. Then he pumps either water or air through the hose, which creates a venturi effect to suck water in through the slit.
  “It works great to empty pits, puddles, cellars, containers, etc.,” says Stubbs. “The more pressure you create, the more vacuum.”
