Nano Airlift Pump Challenge! BEAT THIS to be Champion! And World record holder!

My video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_88_xUd5Zs contains the current record (18 ft high) on Jan 14th 2012 I believe it can easily be beaten. But wash out your tubes beforehand, maybe even put dirt through them! (New tubes have some sort of coating that repels water and makes the experiment more difficult than it needs to be). The 2011 record was 16 ft high using the conditions in the experiment. Believe it or not, nobody knows how high this can pump! (updated, December 2011 : Windowfarms suggest that these types of pumps can pump about 10 times the submergence) 25 ft but they do not know for sure. This is a cheap experiment in open source product development! Use a little aquarium air pump to pump water to amazing heights with the plug flow airlift process. (I think the best tube sizes are 1'4 inch or 3/16 inch diameter.) so 4 to 6 mm internal diameter How high can you pump? You tell me! (With ordinary airlift pumps, your well needs to be at least 60 ft deep to airlift from 40 ft, with this one it only needs to be 43 ft deep to do the same thing! If you have a suitable place, (maybe you live in a highrise)? or if you have a friend who might do the experiment ,Please expand human knowlege by either doing this simple cheap experiment or at very least passing the link to someone who might try it. itsandbits1 on instructables dot com pumped to 16 ft high with a similar set up around 12th july 2011. This might mean that a boy or girl in Africa can pump water from a 40 ft deep well using only a bundle of tubes and a small bellows or foot operated air pump! Thanks Brian 2nd May 2011
