Question about Plumbing
The pressure produced by a pump depends on it's capacity and efficiency, the power of the motor driving the pump and the resistance of the pipework.
Without the resistance provided by the usual pipework the pump produces negligible pressure and just merely moves the liquid.
Given the motor power and pump capacity/efficiency are fixed values, the only reason the pressure would increase is the resistance provided by the pipework has increased.
