RE: If the signal goes in both caps they must divide.

Think of 2 resistors in parallel.

Capacitors have reactance so that at any given frequency each cap has a reactance value.

The two caps in parallel will have one half of that reactance value just like 2 (equal value) resistors in parallel will have one half the value of one.

I don't see the water analogy falling apart but yes, the signal is in both capacitors at once but one cap is carrying half the current and the other cap is carrying the other half of the current.
