Comes to energy efficient pond pumps. *
These pumps are designed to operate below water level out of the water. If you need to operate the pump above water level, you will a Priming Pot/Strainer Basket and a Check valve. The check valve will get installed at the intake to allow for the water to stay in the intake line and create a siphon effect as these pumps do not pull water.
Units are pre-wired with an 8' Grounded cord and molded 115V plug
