OPERATION

USING THE WATER PUMP

WARNING

Running water pump gives off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas.

Breathing carbon monoxide may cause nausea, fainting or death.

Operate water pump ONLY outdoors.

Keep exhaust gas from entering a confined area through windows, doors, ventilation intakes or other openings.

DO NOT operate water pump inside any building, confined area or enclosure, such as basements, garages or a similar location, even if doors or windows are open.

Safe Operating Considerations

Clearances and Air Movement

WARNING

Exhaust heat/gases can ignite combustibles, structures or damage fuel tank causing a fire.

Keep at least 5 ft. (152 cm) clearance on all sides of water pump including overhead.

DO NOT place water pump where exhaust gas could accumulate and enter inside or be drawn into a potentially occupied building. Ensure exhaust gas is kept away from any windows, doors, ventilation intakes or other openings that can allow exhaust gas to collect in a confined area

(Figure 5). Prevailing winds and air currents should be taken into consideration when positioning water pump.

Figure 5 — Water Pump Clearance

Typical Water Pump Shown

Exhaust Port

What is “Head”?

Head refers to the height of a column of water that can be delivered by the discharge of the pump.

Suction Head is the vertical distance between the center of the pump and the surface of the liquid on the suction side of the pump. May also be referred to as “suction lift”.The atmospheric pressure of 14.7 psi at sea level limits suction head lift to less than approximately 26 feet for any pump.

Discharge Head is the vertical distance between the pump’s discharge port and the point of discharge, which is the liquid surface if the hose is submerged or pumping into the bottom of a tank.

Total Head is the sum of the suction head value plus the discharge head value.

As water pumping height increases, pump output decreases. The length, type, and size of the suction and discharge hoses can also significantly affect pump output.

It is important for the suction operation to be the shorter part of the total pumping action.This will decrease the priming time and improve pump performance by increasing the discharge head.

Suction head is a maximum of 25 feet and discharge head should be a maximum of 200 feet.Total head can not be more than 225 feet (Figure 6, next page).

Move Water Pump to Safe

Operating Location

For best pump performance, locate the pump on a flat, level surface as close as possible to the water to be pumped. Secure water pump to avoid tipover. Use hoses that are no longer than necessary.

IMPORTANT: Direct open end of discharge hose away from home, electrical devices or anything not desired to get wet.

WARNING

Fuel and its vapors are extremely flammable and explosive.

Fire or explosion can cause severe burns or death.

WHEN OPERATING EQUIPMENT

This water pump is not for use in mobile equipment or marine applications.

DO NOT tip engine or equipment at angle which causes fuel to spill.

Secure water pump. Loads from hoses may cause tipover.
