Selecting Flo King Pump-Body Length

Cutaway ViewAll Flo King pumps are available in different body lengths. Solution must be sufficiently above the "Weep Hole" at all times, or the pump will not operate.

Explanation: As shown at left, the Impeller is located just below the Weep Hole. Like the propeller of an outboard boat motor, the Impeller spins at high speed and cannot perform its task without liquid contact.

To ensure that the pump primes and to prevent undesirable turbulence at the solution surface, the Weep Hole and Impeller must be sufficiently submerged at all times.
