Thank you for posting your question here on

Go to a local home center, hardware or pump store (landscape or pond supplies) and get a self-priming pump that is rated for the delivery you need and the system head that will be present in your installation. Add a semi-rigid flexible suction line with a foot valve and protective screen at the end and a manifold to the discharge that includes a spigot to hook a hose to and you're all set. It will probably run a few hundred dollars if electric driven. If you need a gas driven unit it will be a bit more.

Can the pool overflow from rain?

A pool will over flow in the rain, the pool pump is only for circulating water not for draining overflow , you can go to a local pool supply and buy a pump to hook to a garden hose and drain it partially, be aware that the pump runs on electric power and you want to be careful not to drain the pool below the skimmer level or you will end up replacing the pool pump motor

I have a model 109163. I'm trying to pump water from a creek. The suction hose is about 6 ft below the pump and 12ft long. The output hose is running about 300 ft at a gradual incline to about 10 ft. My...

In order for the pump to **** up water, it must discharge air. Try this. Install a hose bibb (faucet) in the discharge line over top of the pump. Fill the pump housing with water, turn on the pump and open the hose bibb/faucet until full water flow is established. Almost all air should be out of the pump and suction line at this time. Now when you close the hose bibb/faucet, the pump will have plenty of pressure to fill the long discharge line.
Suction line should be 2-1/2 inch if that is the pump suction size.
What size is your discharge line?
There should be a check valve/foot valve on the end of the line in the creek to keep water in the pump once it is primed.

Milky oil leaking from left side caseing?

If water gets inside the gearbox, it will emulsify due to the "blending" caused by the gears and crankshaft. It turns the oil a milky color. The water can come from a bad oil seal on the water pump (if the bike is water cooled), or from condensation inside the gearbox. Sitting out in the rain, pressure washing or riding in creek beds can also be the water source. Find the water source and fix the seal or otherwise remedy the exposure. You will need to do an oil change. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Hello, We have 144 HVAC units in hotel. We do not have drain to release condensation water, as a result water flows through walk way and makes it wet.

Common problem at hotels. Affordable Solution choices are to (1)catch in container (drain daily), (2)catch in channel or tube and direct along building to better drain site or into groove in cement (cut one if needed) leading to rain gutter. Finally there are higher cost solutions, which are (1) Pump style. Small plastic pump and water resivoir are set below and drainage goes into device using pvc (typically) clear vinyl or pvc is then directed from pump up hill or wall or anywhere you want it to go to find good drain site or garden patch. Pump is electric and will need to be plugged or wired in and will pump out water as it collects. (2) They make electric water evaporator units that catch the water and heat it up so that it evaporates faster than the container can fill up. this may be available through daewoo and could possibly be installed inside or just below the unit.

My 1995 Toyota Tacoma 4 cylinder 2.7 liter automatic 4wd is missfireing on three of the four cylinders. The miss fire is very random happening more and more frequently. I have good compression and timing....

Pull codes from OBD computer go from there. Could be other problems, check fuel pressure, All electrical connectors- loose, water, dirty, ground connections, etc. Could be a failing sensor. How do you know its missfiring on 3-4? one or two cylinders would be a really bad shake. Creek is to deep stay out of creek. Good luck!
