Ok, so, where were we? Oh yes, I remember, I was giving
you the world's first true overunity device (I think).
I only put three containers on the system but the pump
seemed to have no trouble with it so I'm not sure there is a limit to the
number it could carry. Probably this is tied to the capacity of the
pump. Remember that we are pumping water OUT from the
BOTTOM of container number one and so, as long as the air has somewhere
else (the inlet) to suck something in from, gravity
is helping us move the water out! There is very little effort required
by the pump to do this.
My next step was to add a holding tank so that I could
connect container three to that as it's intake supply and as the catch
basin for the pumps outlet:
So now we have a little complete cycle from intake to
outlet. All in one neat, continuous loop. I thought I might be onto
something here. So far we have natural forces helping us allow one
pump to do the work of three, four if you count sucking
water up out of the basin. By the way the basin was also a Rubbermaid
storage container. I like them because they are sturdy
plastic and they are transparent. Also please view the holding basin
as being in front of the containers and not below it. The
above diagram lacks perspective to make it easier to see.
The next step was to see how we could generate power with
this device. Hopefully we can make enough to run our one
As you can see it would be possible to run a total of 4
water wheel/generator combinations with this setup. Add more
canisters, add equally more wheel/generators. Are we at overunity yet?
The water was flowing into the containers anyway and
the weight of the falling water turns the wheels so they put zero additional
stress on the system. But wait, there's more. At this
point let's imagine an electrical pump instead of the hand powered
