Noct stop solving my puzzles! j/k You're right except for the reason. There is more to a siphon than gravity. It also accounts for total distance in height and (most importantly) air pressure into account. Gravity alone would not do the trick. Good one though
Good to know!
I was never sure of the exact physics of it, but I knew that the water will flow from the higher place to the lower place, even if it has to go up to get there (up to a maximum of 32 feet up)

My mother was also a tank driver
itachi-san: siphon effect is due 2 factors, a. gravity which gives the water in the pool the "head" it needs to store energy(potential energy) and b. the lack of air in the pipe which causes the waer to flow our so easily. This puzzle reminded me of my road trip when my friends ran out of gas and I had to siphon out some gas from my own tank to put some into theirs'.
