Horse power is not an issue with this pump as it will pump water for long distances through 2" hoses as long as the hoses are open ended. This is not a pressure pump but a volume pump.

This semi-trash pump cannot be used to transfer wet leaves. A trash pump can be used for that application provided that a sufficient amount of water is also being transferred along with the leaves. Click the links below to view trash pumps.

This semi-trash pump features a max suction lift of 23'. It can lift that distance if primed and the suction hose end is submerged. The entire suction hose doesn't need to be submerged.

Question

should i use regular unleaded gas or premium?

Also when priming the pump prior to start up, does the suction hose need to be completely filled with water or do you just have to pour a small amount of water into the priming port?

Either one should be fine. The alcohol in the fuel is more important to look for. I have been told it dries out carb seal and gaskets over the winter time.

Question

Can the discharge port be attached for side discharge instead of in the same direction as the suction intake?

Suction and discharge ports pointing the same direction requires unnecessary bends in the hoses to direct water away from the intake source. Unnecessary bends reduce flow and compromise pumping efficiency.

The discharge fitting on the Semi-Trash pump can be adjusted by unbolting the fours bolt, then adjusting the fitting to the side and then rebolting. We would suggest that the discharge fitting would be set to the left, as the muffler is on the right and this could cause problems.
