    I wanted to know whether could transfer water from a lower potential to a higher potential using this cord. What if i split it into stages? Would that work>
    Alternatively what other methods are of transferring water from lower potential to higher potential?

    Thanks.

    Well it's a siphon pipe for aquariums - in normal use it transfers water from high to low potential... but you need to pump the blue concertina with your hand to get it started.

    you could pump water from low to high potential all day by constantly squeezing and releasing the blue concertina (which contains a one way valve)

    Just had another thought - you might be interested in airlift pumps which pump water upwards by introducing air bubbles into an open ended pipe full of water.

    they're used for suction cleaning aquariums (aquarium owners often already have an air pump anyway) and various industrial applications - they're good at dealing with water containing suspended solids without clogging or abrading an impeller.
