I seek to place a pump a distance from the sump, there is a bulkhead in the side of the sump which will have 8" of water in it. Is this going to strain the pump, or reduce it's throughput?

Thanks!

What size pipe? What type of pump?

This is an external Gen X Mak4 (otherwise known as a PCX 40 I believe) pressure rated at ~1100gph.
