A: I am sorry but I am not sure if you are asking a question and if so what that question is. Home Depot began selling this pump in 2015. The currently batch we have in stock arrived at our facility from Little Giant on 8/19/22
A: Pretty much all pumps are rated on a graph called a pump curve. On one axis you have the height the fluid will be lifted. We call this the head. On the other you have the flow rate. The graph or curve illustrates the pumps performance across its range. If you look under the header "Info and Guides", on the Home Depot product listing page, you will find a PDF of the specification sheet. It contains the pump curve for this unit. At 12 vertical feet this unit will pump 300 Gallons per Hour. That could also be expressed as 5 Gallons per minute or .083 gallons per second. Is that enough water for the application? I can not answer that. If your expectation is a fountain similar to the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas I would say defiantly not. Obviously I am joking. My point is that some fountains require a great deal of water volume. While other water features are designed around a slow trickle. In this case a required flow has not been indicated. Thus I can not give you a definitive answer.
A: Minimal cost. Very efficient small electric motor. We have cheap power here in PNW.
A: This is like an SAT word problem. So let me offer an opinion using my limited knowledge. This unit has a draw of 3.2 amps at 110 Volts. Using formulas not displayed here, that means .352 KW an hour. Now there are 8760 hours in a year and your premise is that the pump would be running 59% of that or 5168 hours and 20 minutes. So 5168.4 hours times .352 KW per hour equals 1819.2668 KW a year. You will need to look at your electric bill and determine what you pay per KW as prices vary throughout the country. I am in Massachusetts where I pay 24 cents a Kilowatt. So my expected annual operation cost under this scenario would be $436.62 I would bet that in most applications this unit will not be required to draw peak amperage so I would expect my actual consumption to be less. But as you asked a precise question I wanted to give you a logical answer. I think it also worth noting that the city next to me has a hydroelectric power plant which provides power at 2 cents a kilowatt. So if i were to move there, my expected cost would drop to $36.38
A: The inlet is 3/4" FNPT Female National Pipe Thread
