Is this power free liquids filter ?

This is power free except that if you want to use the liquids, you have to pump them again.

I thought Thursdays was the traditional throw-back day.

Not the first example of this type of liquid sorting on the forum but the oldest I could find in a pinch-

It doesn't have to be the first, the OP found something cool and decided to post it, along with a question. 

Mechanical filters are cool too because the material doesn't need to leave the pipe.

I can filter all liquids I want, power free in this.

It's not power free, you need one pump for each liquid so instead a liquid filter that need 120 Watts, you will need two pumps on the top of your filter and two other on the bottom, so it will cost 960 watts to filter only two liquids.

So no, it's not power free, but it's a fun (and old) concept. :)

This also has a possible failure level if you ever let the liquid levels drop small enough to break the seals.

But it's still a fun feature/principle of the game.

I believe this will never fail if there is too little liquid.  Its stability relies on liquid stacking.  However, it could fail if there is too much liquid.

The game is _this_ old? I must stop play immediately! Somebody may think I am _old_ too!

Using an element sensor and shutoff is power free.  Yes, the shutoff has to be connected to a power line and says it takes 10W but it really doesn't.

Aha and where in @ramzord (s) build you see a shutoff and an element sensor?

I'm saying a sensor and shutoff is also power free and takes up a lot less space.
