    What is the orientation of the capillary tube?
    Which direction do you drill the hole?
    Compared with the capillary, what is the diameter of the hole?

    Do you think a higher column of liquid might be supported if there are holes through the tube because it raises the pressure in the fluid column from a depression to atmospheric pressure?
