      Make sure water is all the way up to the pump before starting the motor. Use a pressure guage on the outlet side of the pump. If you ran it dry you may have damaged it. Pumps cannot be run dry for any length of time.

      As fer as your other post. Water is sucked into the pump by suction. Most pumps cannot suck more than 20-25 feet.
