How to siphon standing water from your lawn with a garden hose

If you have standing water in your yard or garden and you want to drain away as much water as you can to help the area dry up and become less muddy, you may be able to do it by creating a siphon with a regular garden hose. You can do this even if you have no power, no generator, and no pump. In this video I show you how siphons work, how to start a siphon with a garden hose, and what the process looks like to drain standing water from a lawn. You don't need a significant elevation drop to accomplish this.

I was able to drain about 1.3 gallons/minute (5L/min) with my garden hose. That's about 78 gal/hr or 1900 gal/day.
