The higher you pump the water, the stronger your pump needs to be, or the skinnier your hose needs to be. A lower discharge point and / or a smaller diameter hose might help immensely.

If it was initally wired for 230, I question who rewired it for 115, the reason is 230 is a foreign relation in the metric world, 220 in our world, in which case two of the wires wires hooked up according to non American standards. The scamatic showed the change over inside the cap, but in china the white is the ground and the green is reversed with the red to make the motor in reverse, confused, you should be, cause I'm not looking at the motor so there is no way for me to know what you have there! What I'm saying is stop before you burn up the motor and take it to a motor shop that knows about the proper rewiring to change it from 220 to 110. 4 Min. is a long time, you may have already fried it. Good Luck!

if it is just a small length of cord you can just attach any cord to it from any old appliance, if you feel that it needs to be waterproofed go to home depot and by one for wet areas

That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.
