Watch out for air bubbles slowly accumulating in the top of the siphon and stopping it.

To this point, consider installing an airline check valve in the top siphon portion and periodically just suck out the air that accumulates.

I wouldn't use an airline check valve.   IME this will eventually fail and cause a flood.   I had to find this out the hard way.

Instead just drill the top of the siphon tube and connect an Aqualifter pump and let it run continuously to suck out any air bubbles accumulated.

This is similar to how the CPR overflows are configured also.
