hi, i would like to inquire how does an inverted siphon works? how can it carry water from lower level to higher level? can an inverted siphon be used in submerged condition? if i have a tubine which draws water out from a container and in the same drawing out direction, there is also an air tube which pumps out air bubbles to create cavitation, will i still be able to create a siphon? the inlet tube for the container is situated at the top of the front face while the turbine and the outlet tube is situated at the bottom of the back face. the turbine will draw the water out from the container creating the first suction....then the air tube which is located behind the turbine will create air bubbles which will create spaces that will remove the water resistance from the water. thus the water from the container should flow out without much resistance thereby increasing the efficiency of the siphon. will this idea work? is there also a way to show graphics to illustrate the idea? Thank You Very Much Sincerely, joseph sim
