RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. This pump is supplied with a grounding conductor and
grounding-type attachment plug. To reduce the risk of electrical shock, be certain that it is
connected only to a properly grounded, grounding-type receptacle.
WARNING !
Do not use the power cord or discharge hose to carry or handle the pump. Doing so may cause
damage to the power cord or discharge hose. Use the carrying handle supplied with the pump.
WARNING !
Always use a grounded outlet. A three-prong mating type receptacle is needed for safe use.
This should be in accordance with the National Electric Code and any additional codes or laws
required by your local government.
NOTICE !
It is strongly recommended to use a ground fault interrupt device on any electrical appliance,
including this pump, when used in a wet or moist environment. This is required by many local
codes and enforcement agencies. It is strongly recommended by Superior Pump as it provides a
much safer installation and will greatly reduce possible injury from electrical shock.

DANGER !
REPLACEMENT PARTS
To order replacement parts call
1-800-495-9278
Do not use this pump to pump chemicals, flammable liquids, sewage or corrosive liquids. You
could injure yourself and the pump will fail. Pumping these types of liquids voids the warranty.
Superior Pump and other pump companies manufacture pumps for these types of liquids. Make
sure you purchase a pump designed for your specific needs. This pump will handle fluids with
the same characteristics as water. If you have any questions call us at 1-800-495-9278.
WARNING !
Your pump has thermal over-load protection built in. It is not recommended for pumping liquids
over 120° F. The thermal overload protector will automatically shut down the pump in an
overheat situation. It will then reset itself once the pump cools down. This overload is designed
as a safety device and it will fail after repeated use. Normal operation is for fluids between 32° F
& 120° F.
WARNING !
DO NOT RUN THE PUMP DRY. The pump depends on water for cooling and lubrication.
Operating the pump without water may cause the motor to overheat or cause damage to parts of
the pump. It may also shorten the life of your pump.
NOTICE !
EXTENSION CORDS
For best performance, it is recommended to connect the power cord directly to the grounded
GFCI outlet. If the use of an extension cord is necessary, always use a grounded waterproof type
cord. Never use longer than a 25-ft. cord that is lighter than 14/3 gauge.
DANGER !
Keep all electrical connections away from wet and moist environments. Wet connections can
cause electrical shock resulting in personal injury.

on the pump. failure to do so may result in fatal electrical shock. Always disconnect the power
source before

This may cause the intake screen to clog or damage to your pump.
2. The water level must be at least ½” deep for the pump to operate.
3. Plug the power cord into a grounded 120-volt AC outlet. The pump will start to operate as
soon as the cord is plugged in.
4. The pump will remove water down to 1/2” of the surface
5. The pump should be turned off once the water reaches these levels.
6. Do not let the pump run dry. The pump depends on water for cooling and lubrication.
Operating the pump without water may cause the motor to overheat or cause damage to
parts of the pump. It may also shorten the life of your pump.
