    HI johnmorris,

    you can get the siphon going by doing the following,TURN OFF THE ecosystem pump.

    1-make sure there is water in the skimmer box and the filter.
    2- take a piece of airline tubing 18" to 24"+

    3-insert the airline tubing halfway into the U tube and place it in the skimmer cup as if it was working.

    4- suck on the airline tubing this will remove the air and it will fill with water thats it,now its primed and ready to go just plug it in.
