With a 90 the water bends but all the waters momentum is in one direction. Air is exited on the way. Without the 90 movement of exiting water and air will be in 180 degrees fighting to exit out the top and through a pipe. Energy of the mass of waters momentum is waisted.

Air and water will go in all directions, 360°. Is this really less efficient?
