I personally don't.


I would naturally assume that water dripping from an overflow on a cistern indicates that it is full and to the brim.


How a wooden spoon is involved, must be................?



Please, educate us all, or just me on this one

Cool

No clue, either.
The only thing that I could think of would have to do with a roof cistern with a float-valve cut-off that is not shutting the incoming water flow off completely.
A wooden spoon taped to the float would help put more shut-off lift pressure on the valve to stop it from dripping?
Give us more info on what you saw on TV.

Mike was heading in the right direction Kaytee,
to shut off that valve you lay your wooden spoon across the top of the cistern and tie the float arm to it, as the water drains out now it cant refil.
