Some notes on using mag drive pumps:
These are not self priming pumps. The pump head must be flooded with liquid prior to turning the pump on. The easiest way to do this is to let liquid fill the inlet hose prior to connecting it to the pump. If the pump squeels or makes loud noises, shut it down and make sure the head is full of liquid.
If you wish to regulate the flow rate, it must be done on the output side of the pump.
Use teflon tape on all threaded connections and be very careful not to cross thread when applying metal fittings to the polysulfone heads. Stripping or cross-threading the polysulfone or galling the threads on the stainless head is not covered under warranty.
