Water Pump Suction Head As the head (pumping height) increases. 1. please call 1-800-520-0882. Do not use a suction hose with a diameter smaller than the Pump’s Intake Port (1″ diameter). Place Strainer into water to be pumped. NOTICE: If there is an air leak in the suction line. place the Pump near the water level and use hoses that are no longer than necessary. connect additional discharge hoses to direct the discharge to the desired location. Cavitation: This is the sudden formation and collapse of low-pressure vapor (bubbles) across the vanes of the impeller. The length. Use of thread sealant is recommended. 5. Cause: Water hammer pressure is more likely to occur when using a very long discharge hose. The discharge hose should be kept as short as possible for more efficient operation. Cause: When the surface pressure on a liquid becomes low enough. Do not operate Pump without Strainer connected to end of suction hose. the liquid will begin to boil (even at room temperature). 2. Route the Intake Hose with the Intake Strainer fully immersed in the water supply source. Solution: Minimizing suction head and using the largest practical suction hose diameter will reduce the likelihood of cavitation. This is the time it takes the Pump to bring the water from the water level to the Pump during the initial operation. If necessary. CAUTION: Strainer must be fully immersed in water. Keep Strainer out of sand or silt by placing Strainer in a bucket or on stones. Water Hammer Pressure: This is energy sent back to the Pump due to sudden stoppage of water flowing from the Pump. See diagram below. please call 1-800-444-3353. Solution: Use as short a discharge hose as possible and turn off water pump before closing water flow. Operation Concerns 1. Secure the Intake Hose in place to keep it from moving once the Pump is turned on. Page 7 . cavitation can occur when the suction vacuum becomes too great. energy is sent back to the pump. For best Pump performance. If the flow of water at the end of the discharge hose is shut off suddenly. allowing water vapor or bubbles to form at the impeller. leading to potential damage to the Pump casing. level. Item 68371 For Pump technical questions. This means pumping height for the Intake Hose (suction head) should be shorter than the pumping height for the Discharge Hose. This will allow the Pump to produce the greatest output with the least self-priming time. sturdy surface capable of supporting the weight of the Pump. With centrifugal pumps. 3. type. Strainer Discharge Head Total Head 4. This causes a large pressure spike in the Pump housing. The Intake Hose should be as short as possible for more efficient operation. and size of the suction and discharge hoses can also significantly affect Pump output.Locating the Water Pump Locate the Water Pump on a flat. you may not be able to prime the pump. 2. The rapid pressure increase can cause impeller damage. For Engine technical questions. Make sure to secure the discharge hose in place to keep it from moving once the Water Pump is turned on. Discharge head capability is always greater than suction head capability. Route the discharge hose to the desired discharge location. Minimizing suction head (placing the Pump closer to the water level) will also help reduce self-priming time. pump output decreases.
Item 68371 . 1. Full level Full level Pre-Start Checks Inspect Pump and engine. Unscrew and remove the Fuel Cap. Fill the unit with clean water up to the top of the opening. (The SAE Viscosity Grade chart on page 12 in the Service section shows other viscosities to use in different average temperatures. 2.
