"Like pouring water into a sieve" =  như đổ nước vào rây -> nghĩa là cố làm công việc vô ích, không hiệu quả.

Ví dụ
“Pouring money directly into Eskom in its current (hiện tại) form is like pouring water into a sieve,” Mr Mboweni said on Wednesday. He insisted the bailout (cứu trợ) was conditional on Eskom achieving steep cost cuts of more than R20bn per year, and on the imposition (áp đặt) of a Treasury-appointed “chief reorganisation officer”.

Attempting to improve organic (có tổ chức) rankings for an outdated or inferior site is like pouring water into a sieve.

Dr. Edith Carpio of BEE, who has been sitting with me in the UNESCO National Commission (Education Committee) to represent (đại diện) DECS, specified that the P100 million will convert the first month of Grade I in selected public schools into a kindergarten program referred to as “the eight week” program. This kind of spending was like pouring water into a sieve and eventually it was proven ineffective.
