Trying this in my aquaponics greenhouse. You may want to try this to water hard-to-reach plants. The short pipe end is the air from an aquarium aerator. The long pipe end is the outlet for water. Scale it to fit your tubing in the two pipe ends, I'm using 1/4" aquarium hose. I'm amazed how little air is needed to transfer water from the bottom of a barrel, buried in the floor, to the ceiling 8 feet from the floor. That's about a 12 foot lift !
