I have a confusion ...

First of all: I'am not a physicist or anything close to it. I jhust enjoy to think about certain thinks in a different way and to ask for a much more detailed "how".
So here is what keeps me from ...

Consider a system as illustrated below:
There are two 55 gallon barrels used to store water coming down the gutter.
These barrels are connected together on the bottom to maintain equal water level ...

Pretty self explanatory title. But I just read in a book that the surface tension remains same even if the surface area is increased. What could be a possible explanation for that?

I know the expression for excess pressure inside a LIQUID DROP is :
