Sounds like a good idea. How would I do that? When you mean intake, do you mean to attach a hose to have clean water go through the pump?
At first I meant an intake to take water from a different location into the pump to be cleaned. But looking at the pump again, it looks like there is a nozzle off the pipe going up if you wanted to redirect the water somewhere else. That is where you would attach your tubing and ideally run to the other side of the tank.
How you would go about churching up where that hose ends up to make it look good is another project.
