So I was reading the installation instruction of the Pentair Intellipro 011018 and it indicated that it should not be installed in excess of 3' BELOW water level and 8' ABOVE. This got me thinking why this is so? and what would be the PERFECT MOST OPTIMIZED position of the pump in relation to the water level? We're just about to build it so we can position it at almost any height within the recommended level.
I'm also wondering why they would give 8' on the above and only 3' below.... at 8' wouldn't that work the pump to bring the water up to that level? while if you bring it lower there's that natural movement of water to level itself so your pump is being helped by this naturally. obviously I'm not understanding something and would appreciate if someone can explain why. just very curious.... theories please.
