I just purchased the PFS Pond Filter that includes this pump.
The inlet of the pump has a plastic blank held in place by a screwed cap.
Does the plastic blank need to be removed for the pump to operate?

Answer:Hello Fish Geek,
The "cap" found near the inlet of the SFP-65 does not need to be removed in order for the pump to function.
If you are interested in running the SFP-65 inline with another unit, that will be the point of connection and the cap would need to be removed.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Can this pump be run inline? by that i mean; a hose attached to the inlet and a hose attached to the outlet and only the hoses submerged in water.

The SFP-65 and all of our dedicated submersible pond pumps only have an outlet for water. The water passes over a prefilter in most cases and then passes by the impeller where the water is expelled usually into a canister filter via an output line.
