Will it hurt anything to mount the labsco I bought horizontally or would it work best vertically mounted?

This is straight out of the Jabsco Instructions. This says to me it can be mounted basically horizontal or vertical as long as the motor is above the pump head if mounted vertically




Installation Instructions
• The Cyclone can be mounted on any flat
surface.
• The pump must be installed below the lowest
fluid level to maintain flooded suction.
• Fit pump in a dry, well ventilated position.
• Use rubber grommets provided to minimise
vibration.
• If mounted vertically, ensure the motor is
above the pump head.
• Use 3/4" pipe fittings with PTFE pipe joint tape
or compound.
• Plastic fittings should not be used if pump is
installed below the waterline.

Hopefully I can find some 3/4 NPT fittings locally, I know I can get some nylon fittings pretty easy just not sure why I can't use plastic fittings if below the water line? Thanks for the info bro, much appreciated!

I know you are in the middle of know where Kansas but any Home Depot or Lowes should have those fittings. Hell thats where I always go trolling for stuff like that. Wandering isles fitting together till I get exactly what I want.
