The pump is best used in an upright position for maximum suction capacity, however can also be used in a horizontal position if required. This pump can be used when partially out of the water. However do not run your pump dry – refer to the instruction manual for details. To prevent damage, use a rope or chain to position and retrieve your pump – never use the electric cable for this purpose.
Don’t use this pump for recirculating or filtering pools, spas, etc. While these pumps are built to a high safety standard, they are not approved for installations where people will be in the water while they are operating.
