capillary action - via plant illness

----

A ferrofluid siphon using capillary action, reservoir at the bottom, a siphon tube U-shaped [upside-down] to a receiving tank higher up; cap-action fills the tube, a magnet is exposed under the receiving tank to draw fluid out of the tube into the higher tank. When full, the magnet is blocked, a valve is opened to a separate pipe between the two tanks, with intermediate turbine.
