Help on engineering project?

I am doing an engineering research project and I am trying to build a system that will spray water on solar panels. I will have a tank that is completely enclosed except for two holes on the top where water will be pouring in and filling up the container.

I will have a tank that is completely enclosed except for two holes on the top where water will be pouring in and filling up the container. I will also have a hole in the side of the container to connect a tube to. If there is a greater volume of water total than the tank can hold, will the water move up the tube or will it go out the holes in the top where water is pouring in? I will need the water in the tube to travel about a foot uphill. The tube is 1/4 inch in diameter if that helps.

Thanks!
