Your water pressure may not be that great. I get allot of suction when I have the faucet on. Fortunately, I have a TV in the basement, which is where all the tanks are at. So I usually just turn on the faucet to start the suction, then turn off the faucet after awhile and let gravity works on it's own. It's allot slower, so I just watch TV for awhile. Since I use my water change/filling setup
, I don't have to worry about over draining the tank.
