It works as a siphon because during the flush water flows through this tube to refill the bowl. When the ball cock shuts off, gravity causes the water to continue flowing just like any siphon, and it will continue to flow as long as the lower end of the refill tubing is below the level of water in the tank. Happens every time. This little tube has made more money for plumbers and pissed off more DIY than anything else I can think of.
