The Original Safety Siphon is a safe alternative to transferring dangerous fuels or messy liquids by other means. The hose with the patented self priming pump eliminates the risk of drawing hazardous or nasty fluids into your mouth when getting the siphon process started. A simple vigorous pumping action starts the siphon flow instead of sucking it out with your mouth or hands. It does not need or should never be placed in the mouth. 100 Percent Pure, Lead-Free Copper pump with an industrial strength glass ball and stainless steel spring - 1/2\" ID Premium siphon has a flow rate of up to 3.5 Gallons per minute How To Use: 1. Before using, drain all liquid from the hose. 2. The end of tube must be lower than pump before siphoning will start. 3. Submerge pump into liquid that is to be siphoned. 4. Move pump vigorously in an up and down motion. It is important the pump remain in the liquid at all times to start the siphoning. Once the flow starts, stop moving or shaking the pump as gravity will maintain the flow of the liquid. Once siphoning starts, keep the pump submerged in liquid. 5. To stop siphoning, remove the pump from the liquid. 6. Drain all liquid from the hose and clean thoroughly. 7. Store in a cool, dry place.

I have a lot of experience with gravel vacuums for aquariums, so I knew just how to get it started. Follow these directions if you need them: put the metal end of the siphon into the tank you're siphoning from, and put the other end at least a foot below that into a bucket or something. This relies on fluid pressure and gravity. Keep the siphon straight up and down, and push it as far down as you can into the liquid. Keeping the siphon straight upright, move it up and down about an inch, about twice a second. Don't stop until fluid is pouring out of the other end. That's all there is to it.
Troubleshooting: If it doesn't start draining within 2 minutes, your drain end probably needs to be lower, or the suction end needs to be further into the liquid, or the siphon suction end is not straight upright. If there is too little liquid it will lose suction.
I bought this for our emergency-provisions (we live in the high risk Earthquake area on west coast). In an emergency I don't want to have to fiddle with a slow-flow, or perhaps even no-flow, siphon. But, both product shipments months apart were delivered with the tube kinked in several places. I tried to heat then re-shape the tube to remove the kinks with hot water and clamps but the kinks just returned. It appears the kinks are being introduced when the tube is curled into such a small-diameter coil that the tube has to kink in order to make such sharp bends. All the manufacturer needs to do to prevent this is ship with larger coils.
Three stars for shipping defective product twice. Two stars for my having to drive to hardware store twice to buy a replacement tube, which is a substantial percent of the entire product price.
I have a few of these - I keep one in the house for draining our fish tanks, one out in the garage for various jobs, and one in my Jeep for reserve fuel transfers. This one is under the name of "Safety Siphon" and has the brass end. I recently went to get one at the local big box store and the current versions they have are now plastic (not brass) and were about 8-9 bucks. So went on Amazon for the better quality brass version for same price and had it in about 2 days.
I often wondered why something so stupid remains in the market. Tree huggers who thought they had a win are screwed because the CARB compliant nozzles hurt the environment more.
Aha, enter the Safety Siphon to save the day! To empty a 5-gallon can of gas into a vehicle, just place the can on a small step ladder (3’ high). Feed the PVC hose into the gas filler pipe deep so that its exit is below the liquid level in the gas can. Open up the gas can, insert the action end of the Safety Siphon and off you go! Once flow is established just watch it work. At some point in the transfer, the flow slows. Just pick up the can, which is much lighter to complete the transfer by increasing the elevation difference. At the end, tilting the tank allows almost complete emptying. When the flow stops, lift the action end of the Safety Siphon and drain the gasoline retained in the PVC tube into the vehicle.
Such a simple device saves so much work and eliminates frustration.
The cons are, the hose is quite stiff and wants to return to the tightly coiled position from the packaging. Made it kind of difficult to handle, but if removed from the package and allowed to warm in sunshine and then stored uncoiled, this may not be a problem. About four inches from the end opposite the primer, the hose was crimped. I tried to uncrimp, but not successfully. Nevertheless, it siphoned quickly.
All in all, I am quite pleased with the performance, and the price certainly beats that of the jerry can nozzles that are being advertised on Amazon. In addition, my Safety Siphon is unlikely to break at the first use, if ever, like some have experienced with their jerry can nozzles.

I use it when customers accidentally put regular gasoline in their Diesel engines. I use it to remove the contaminated fuel.Read more
