    unfortunately i tried it. lol it didn't. The weight of the water in the longer arm counteracted the other.

    it's like seawater flowing uphill. Sea being the reservoir down there and the river up there.

    yea yea i got it :D.. the water flows cause the pressure at the top of the longer column tends to be lower than the pressure at the top of the shorter column.. hence the water flows!.. thus the reverse is not possible!
