When priming from open water, remove suction cap from left side or rear of truck and attach one end of the hose to the pump suction arm.  Place the suction strainer on the other end of the hose and place in water. NOTE Connection must be air tight. 8. Before operating from a suction lift, see that the strainer at the lower end of the suction hose is at least two feet  below  the  water  surface  to  avoid  drawing  air.    The  strainer  should  not  rest  on  the  bottom  to  prevent pumping sand and foreign matter. WARNING Excessive sand and foreign matter in water pump will eventually decrease pump efficiency. 9. Prime  the  pump  by  activating  the  primer  control  (5,  Fig.  3)  at  this  time  a  vacuum  reading  will  show  on vacuum  gauge,  the  pump  is  primed  when  water  is  expelled  to  the  ground  under  the  pump  and  a  pressure reading shows on pressure gauge.
