The inlet/suction pipe should be:

  • Kept to the shortest distance practical, but not shorter than the recommended length
  • Re-enforced crush resistant (non-collapsable) hose or pipe
  • All fittings should be air tight
  • Pipes should be equal to or larger than the diameter of the suction/inlet port
  • Fitted with a suction Strainer/Filter (optional)
  • When pump is not in use for a long period of time, empty the pump, rinse it with clean water and
    place it in dry storage
  • pump should be protected from the weather, floods, chemicals, dust, vermin, insects etc
