How can an air pump move water?

  1. Oct 12, 2015 #1
    Here's an example of a product that uses the method.
    If you were to use the same type of small air pump, could the water be moved to a higher point?
    Say I wanted to move water using this method, with a similar air pump, could the water be pushed up 600mm in a tube?

    Isn't that what happens in your example?
