Yeah, for what I know water and other liquids simply try to fill connected pipe to the same level.

a single pipe can store 10 units of water; a storage tank is just a bigger pipe, able to store 2500 units of water.

offshore pumps insert 1 unit of water every tick (1 sec = 60 ticks = 60 units of water). This means that if you have 60 pipes connected after 1 second they will be all with 1 unit of water and after 10 second they'll be all completely full.

small (electric) pump instead moves 0.5 units of water every tick (30 units/second); you can consider it like an inserter, moving water 0.5 units at once.

This means that a very long pipe will simply take longer to fill itself
