Can a self-priming pump in a sump application (ie 6ft of suction lift and 20ft of discharge head) handle hot water? I know that as pressure decreases, boiling point of water drops as well. What do I need to know to figure out at what temperature my pump will boil the water it is lifting (and lose its prime)?
