During our 2011 water supply seminar in Bulloch County, Georgia, we came across an interesting approach to carrying a jet siphon "ready to go." The folks carried a 6-inch, jet siphon pre-connected in a 10-ft length of suction hose...and, they figured out a way to carry a length of 1-1/2-inch hose also pre-connected to the jet siphon. During the 2-hr tanker shuttle drill, the folks deployed the jet siphon in short order...thus showing that a little bit of ingenuity can go a long way in terms of efficiency. Kudos to the folks in Bulloch County for being creative.
