The siphon phenomenon is widely used for the transportation system of water and it is very economical and ecological because the natural energy of water is only used for the power source of the transportation system. We consider that effective utilization of the siphon phenomenon is very useful for a discharge system of solid pills with water. In the present paper, the effects of water jet conditions and the flow tube configurations are experimentally investigated to enhance the discharge performance of the solid pills inside the water tank. From experimental results, it was clearly that an appearance of the siphon phenomenon enhanced the discharge performance of the solid pills from the water tank. And the influence of flow tube configurations appeared remarkably when the supply time of the water jet became long.
