So I tear the Rule 2000 out and the hose before the refit. I flicked the switch and it ran for a few seconds..no further thought.

18 months later and I'm putting the pump back in, all cleaned up and tested in a bucket. Looks great. Dump some water in the bilge and the thing starts cranking. Really moves water..until the float shuts off, then the sizable hose full of water flows back to the bilge. Just enough for the pump to turn on, fill the hose then shut off, over and over.

What am I missing? No check valve, would rather not have one. I can't put a high point in the hose any nearer the pump.
