Question Pumps do not do what you think

So I did some real world tests and calculations on my pumps.

Four pumps will net me about 160GPH

A one inch hole lets in 2,400GPH

Nowhere near enough for even a relatively small hole. Basically all pumps are useful for is open windows and children's dribble?

I made a video, the math is at the end, can this be right?
