    As you can see in these following videos, capillaries are able to suck little waterhills in the surrounding areas of floaters away, so that a floater in a capillary rises more than a floater outside a capillary.  
    For this you can create a circulation between the two floaters, that creates energy, but the question is, where does this energy come from ?  
    here is the 111 sec version :  
    and here the detailed explanation :  
    Please let me know, why do you think this is compatible with energy conservation as far ?  
    best deschoe

    You asked where is the energy coming from.... liquid is always in motion to a significant degree (molecular movement), therefore models with liquid, if made correctly, go beyond what the scientific community expects, because that community clings to contradictions. They won't admit that energy is significantly present when liquid is involved meaning they shouldn't keep saying there isn't energy at the start, and they won't admit that heat from thermodynamics doesn't pose a threat since energy devices can harness such a thing. Good luck, you are on the right track using liquid.

    The energy comes from the original state. Therefore you can only use it once. It is sort of like a rock at the top of a hill. It can drop down and you can use that fall to generate electricity or harness in some other way to deliver power. However, once it is at the bottom of the hill, there is no net benefit in carting it back up the hill to roll down again because the carting up takes more energy than can be harnessed by the falling down.

    The capillary situation is the same. An empty capillary is "cocked" and ready to pull water against the gravity gradient. Once done however, you cannot empty the capillary and go again without expending the same energy you could harness from the lift.

    Lots of situations have potential energy that are good for a one time release. A magnet that is any distance away from another magnet has a potential that can be utilized until they are together. After that, regaining distance between the magnets uses more energy than you can get from their attraction.
