Welcome to FP.

Have you had a look at real-life gravity-fed water fountains?

Note: if the only energy source is gravity, then your reservoir will have to be more than 20' above the ground. Though I suppose you could use a stream. Start with a clear description of what you want to achieve and the constraints that must be followed.

Since this is a science fair - you really want to try for an experiment: what are you testing?
