Do I need to put a check valve on the outlet of the tank to keep the line full of water? Or is it an issue if it sucks water up to pump, then the pipe drains and fills with air, only to repeat the process every time I use water?
Thanks for helping out a new guy.
The pump, or the website, should have a flow v. lift graph either in the manual or on the web.
The pump rating is for 0 lift (head) and no obstructions like 90 degree bends, etc.
