You could syphon the wort down to the basement, cooling it at the same time.
The only problem I can see with this is that the tubing will be heavy when
filled with wort. Common sense suggests using a single long piece of tubing
well secured at the upper end. Syphon enough water to fill the entire length,
for a few minutes, to make sure nothing will pull loose when syphoning the
wort.
