Marvelous "Water Staircase" Lifts Stream 20 Feet. In its time ( 1922-1925 ), this was considered to be one of the greatest inventions ever, but for reasons unknown got lost since then. Here it is again. Recently replicated by Michael Sipos. In all the centuries in which men have attempted to make nature serve them through two sources of energy -- the weight of water and atmospheric pressure -- no such radical invention has been recorded.

I think that invention from the 20s is using a siphon to lift water. Siphons are used in grow beds. Check out this video from Bigelow Brook Farm where they hacked their Bell Siphon using a cup for better performance.
