depends if the cap were flat or convex on the inside. if the cap is convex then you stand a chance of avoiding hydraulic cavitation turbulence. i feel that the smooth surface of the extender and the inch long neck may prevent directional changes that may be undesirable.

i might be making more of this than there is but i am thinking that you want to raise the water column with the least amount of distortion.
