That will cause the liquid (dichlormethane) inside the glass construction to condense. According to the ideal gas law, that will cause a pressure difference, sucking up all dichlormethane.

A smart valve at the bottom will cause the fluid to fall back when a tube is above the water level. Also known as Bobbing bird, bird drinking water toy, rocking bird
