I know! It turned out to be so simple. Whats nice is the Jebao has an auto off feature as well buts its 2 minutes. The siphon restarts faster than that, but if something would go wrong the pump wouldn't be spurting air forever. It is still grabbing quite a bit of water to the keep the shaft and innards wet so I don't think its very dangerous for the pump. Or maybe it would never auto shutoff as it is grabbing water the whole time.
