Question

This pump says "not for continuous use." I am not sure how long is considered "continuous." How long can you run this pump at a time?

I am looking for a pump to move a small amount of water for an hour or two at a time, and then the pump may not be used for several days. Is running this product for an hour or 2 considered "continuous use?"

The manufacturer does not supply a duty cycle for the pump. Continuous duty would include uses such as a fountain or pond pump.

Being the submersible water pump has a sealed motor that is pre-lubricated, the customer does not need to add oil. The unit will not require any maintenance other than the instructions in the manual with the unit.

Question

Can I leave this pump in the bottom of a rain barrell and how far will it pump water "down hill" through a garden hose. The fall is about 10 feet.

My barrell is about 100 feet from the garden and about 10 feet below.

This water pump features a max lift of 23 feet so it will be able to pump the water past the height of the rain barrel. Once the water surpasses the height of the rain barrel, it will easily travel the 100' distance since it's 10' downhill.
