What is the purpose of the vent? They are quite noisy and I capped the vent on the one I built; it runs faster.

How mush higher than the bottom of the siphon should the exit be?

Thanks!

The air vent is there to prevent possible siphon break.
As far as the placement of the exit as long as t is lower than the intake,the only time I have used this model I had made it as close to the original design as possible.
I presume if you changed its position it would change flow rates and one would want the maximum flow rate.
