Put more water into the sump. Because it will settle and both will flow at the same rate. Sounds like there isnt enough water in the sumpo and all the water in the sump isbeing put into the tank before the overflow box can put it in.
1 turn the pump omn and let it fill the tank up to were it is just past above the vcuts in the overflow box.
2. With a piece of aquruim air hose in side the u-tube suck out the air, but be sure when I water starts to flow pinch the hose with your teeth, so you dont allow air back into the U-tube.
3 then slowly remove the air hose without breaking the siphon.
4 sitback and monitor the sump and the tank to make sure they both wont over flow, I siphon will slow down to what the pump is pumping into the tank.
