Suggestion. If you're doing that sort of thing, try using a bigger reservoir. DF tracks pressure from multi-level bodies of water, so if you feed that room from a tank three or four levels deep above the floodgate, the water will literally fill that room in seconds. Of course, if you design one for gobbos, watching them scurry around as the room slooooowly fills... Hee.
ACK! FIRE IN TEEF!
(For anyone who didn't get that, go read VGcats.)
