Q: I just bought 1/2" auto siphon with 1/2" tubing. Did I get the wrong size tubing? I couldn't get the tubing connected to the siphon (assumed I'd slip the tubing over the lip of the auto siphon, but couldn't do it.
A: You have the correct line, it's just a tight fit. If you warm the end of the siphon tube in hot water for a minute, it will soften it and make it easier to stretch over the end of the center racking tube. DO hold the racking tube close to where the tube connects - not along the long part - to avoid snapping the racking cane in the bend!
