Q:The Jabsco website indicates the 32605 model has a maximum suction lift of 6', while your catalog indicates that it is self-priming to 10'-- please advise. This aspect of the pump capability is critical to me as I plan to install the unit at my boat dock, and I would like to install the suction line as deep as possible to avoid algae growth. Also, I conclude that this model has no pressure switch. Please confirm.
Thanks much ... Don Gilbert, Lake Houston, TexasAsked on 4/24/2010 by Anonymous from Lake Houston, Texas
A:If I remember physics correctly, it should not matter how deep you insert the hose into the water. Inserting the hose 10' deep below the surface is not the same as trying to pull a siphon 10 feet up into the air. You have the pressure underwater helping you. You will encounter some friction restriction with a longer hose, but that would be the case whether you dropped the 10' hose straight down or if you went sideways for 10'.
To further answer your question, don't try to pump water more than 6' above the surface and you will have met both requirements. As to which one is correct, I don't know.
Hope that helps.

A:The lift is the vertical distance from the surface of the water to the centerline of the pump. You can drop the suction line as deep as you want and the pump will not care.Answered on 6/9/2011 by Rich Cullen from South Haven, MI
