making a bursting water pump with maya fluids and particles

Hi everyone,

I am trying to make a water pump burst from too much pressure. In the animation there is a guy pumping the water, but the exit pipe is blocked by a cork and water starts gushing out in between the cork and the pipe. I have particles driving a fluid to do this effect and I have two problems.

One, even though I have set the threshold of the collision objects for the particles and the fluids to what seems to be very high, they still penetrate the collision objects.
scene geometry
fluid spill

and two, when I try to render the fluid is either completely opaque when the transparency is set to block, or completely transparent when it is anything but black.
