    Just fit it, you should find it already works as such, then set the float.

    It goes the same route as the flushing water m8 - down the pan! :) Gets rid of all that horrible plumbing on the side of the cistern too...

    I've just had a look at mine which I did recently and I cant see where the route is - it must be within the siphon. After you fit yours you should check the overflow can cope with your water flow rate - simply hold down the float for a while and check the cistern doesn't overflow.
