- Put the hose into the container from which you wish to remove liquid. Be sure that the hole of that end of the hose is submerged in the liquid.
- Place the bucket on the ground below the container that you are removing liquid from.
- Insert the turkey baster into the end of the hose that is not submerged in the liquid.
- Squeeze the turkey baster repeatedly until the liquid comes through the hose.

How to Create a Siphon With a Hose
A siphon is a useful tool that can help move a liquid from one container to another. Some of the most common uses for a siphon are filling and emptying fish tanks and removing gas from cars. Creating a siphon with a hose is easy but can be a messy hassle if you do not do it properly.
Things You Will Need
- Be sure that the container being drained into is large enough to hold the liquid from the other container.
- Some people use suction with their mouths to start the siphon process. This is dangerous with gasoline, as illness can result if you swallow even a small amount.
