I think Mr Barbelo is entitled to be very disappointed at the lack of any diagrams or representation or clear explanation of how your Geyser powered, "funicular" counterweight system, is imagined to work. However, I am not surprised Mr Snape was not contacted to assist the drawing, as it seems you have difficulty describing the imagined system in any significant detail in one clear narrative.
Nevertheless some further clarifying questions:

I gather you are suggesting some form of a natural geyser occurred rather centrally to G1 at grotto but this was sealed and then later an alternative outlet was "drilled" at the location mentioned above, which would place it within the G1 enclosure walls. Can you confirm this is your claim.
How was such a well "drilled"? Do you imagine AE or builders had the equivalent of modern well drilling rigs or do you suppose they had copper tubes that they rotated somehow to drill 100's of metres deep? What was the mechanism used for such drill rotation (eg a windlass turned by cattle etc)?
Important: How high from ground level (to what height) did this geyser project this water?

Why do you consider it smaller? How much smaller?
How did the original "drilled geyser" at specified location provide water to G2 and or G3?

You mean big pyramids? So does that include Djoser, Meidum, Bent, Red, G1, G2, G3 (any more?)
Do you mean they drilled for one or natural outlet?

So you seem to be suggesting that geyser power existed in 4th Dynasty but was completely gone and lost by the end of 5th Dynasty. However Unas last 5th decided even though he couldn't use the technique he adorned his chambers with detailed descriptions of how other pyramids (in particular G1) were built he pretended that he (his name specifically mentioned repetitively) actually participated in such wondrous techniques?
Or what else (what other explanation)?
Also I gather you claim that G1 was originally built as a 6 step pyramid of tiers being 81' 3".
Could you elaborate on whether the sides of these original tiers were vertical or near vertical?
Also could you confirm whether the cladding was done after the 6 step was achieved from bottom up? Or was each tier cladded and completed as it progressed?
Further later in the thread you advise
Regular water has no power to it. Their technology was far too primitive to do anything with water except to drink it and wash their feet. It would be useless for lifting stones unless it was above the "zeroth" level of the pyramid they called the ssm.t and we call the pavement (top of pavement). If it were above this level then they could use its weight to lift stones. Every pound of water at 81' 3" could not only be used to lift a pound of stone to 81' 3" but then it could be used in the cliff face counterweights to lift about five pounds of stone to the base of the pyramid. This is where 81' 3" comes in. It is the height of heaven where "heaven" is defined (in our language) as the height of the bottom of the crown of water in the upper eye of horus. ie it is the altitude above the pavement where the average velocity of the "imperishable stars" approaches zero. The velocity becomes negative above this level. To say it another way it is the altitude of the bottom of the water on top of the pyramid. It is the altitude of the Lake of the Jackal. The depth of the water at this altitude is directly proportional to the pressure of the water that goes through the weir (ba-sceptre) to the I33.t-sceptre that loads the henu boat. This pressure is called "kebehwet" (the natural phenomenon of the water pressure in (on) heaven".
Are you suggesting that somehow this geyser was directed so that it filled a pool or "lake" on top of the 81' 3" step?
Can you explain: how 1 lb of water, can lift 5 lb of stone?
Do you possess a set of colouring in pencils and a 12" schoolboy rule?
I have provided the required attention to your post. Please answer all questions.
btw you didn't answer what they "gave up on" after G2 from previous request???.
In eager anticipation, but no tension yet.
