I've tried that same thing using a submersible pump I put in the lake connected to a hose bib. I was wondering if that really forces water down the pickup hose. It seems like that would become air locked because the foot valve would prevent the water from making it's way out. Of course it has worked like a champ until this year. I think I'm headed back up today with a new foot valve since the temps look ok and it isn't windy.
