NOTE: A float weight should be used instead of a wire tie. Wire ties don't do well when submersed underwater for long periods of time and have caused many failures. When using a float weight the cord must be retained at the top of the tank.
To make a pump up float weight adjustment - The cord should be retained at the top of the tank while the float remains a minimum of 20% off the bottom while hanging. Make a pivot point in the float cord with your fingers so the float is straight up or usually about 10% below top of the tank. Install the float weight on the float cord at the pivot point you created with your fingers.
