General Safety Information:

1. Wear safety glasses at all times when working with pumps.
2. It is required that this unit be plugged into a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). Consult a local electrician for installation and availability.
3. Do not use the power cord or discharge hose to carry or handle the pump. Damage to the power cord
or discharge hose may occur. Use the handle supplied on the pump.

Installation and Operation:

1. This pump has been designed with 1-1/4 NPT discharge size. Connect pipe or fitting to the discharge threads or connect the supplied garden hose elbow fitting to the pump. Thread the female end of the garden hose to the male discharge on the pump.
2. To reduce leakage between the pump and the hose, place a hose washer (not included) on the gardenhose before installing to the pump.
3. For best pump performance, unwind the hose before starting the pump. This will help remove any kinks or binds in the hose and allow the unit to pump with less restriction.
4. Set the pump on a hard, flat surface in the water. Do not set the pump directly on mud or sand surfaces. This will cause the inlet screen to clog.
5. The water level must be at least 1-1/2 inches for the pump to prime and operate. Water levels less than 1-1/2 inches will not allow the impeller to contact water and no water will be pumped.
6. Plug the power cord into a grounded 115-volt GFCI power outlet. The pump will start operatingas soon as the power cord is plugged into the power outlet.
7. The pump will remove water down to 1/2 inch above the hard surface the pump was placed on.
8. The pump should be turned off once the water level reaches the 1/2 inch mark.
