                Where do you think the water was going?

                It could be a total setup. That is, behind the scenes you don't know for sure where the water is going or how it is being pulled out of the cup.
                The hot water side of that faucet might be connected to a pump or some other means to draw the water out, doesn't have to be backsiphonage
                that is drawing the water (or whatever) into the domestic water system. The video was made to get as many hits on YT as possible is my guess.
                The more sensational or provocative it is the more people will pass it around and the more views it will get.

                Or, it could be 100% real. But with no audio explanation or reference to a print or tv news story its difficult to take at face value alone, at least for me.

                  All he did was shut off his water heater and start draining it.

                  I've seen a water heater colaspe from draining the system when the heater was on the roof of a 4 story building and they drained the system at ground level. Heaters have factory pressure temperature relief valves, but they don't come with vacuum relief valves.

                  Of course in reality, only a modern pull out faucet requires anti siphon technology. Not a swing spout 1" above the overflow level.

                    Clearly only licensed plumbers should be allowed to get water from a faucet.

                        I might be dum or a couple of bricks short of a load but I don`t get it taps which are under pressure from either hot or cold water don`t siphone taps are designed to flow in one direction as the jumper valve and washer would seat itself preventing any water siphoning back through the tap into the supply pipe so all I can think of is this utube is a set up

                          "jumper valve" we don't have those here ... only on pull outs ,,,even then they get removed or drilled because of customer bitching about low pressure ...

                            I am trying to determine his objective to make the video. I don't know why people make such video to get likes on you tube.

                              Some would call them "attention whores".

                              I'm to nice for that.
