how often do you clean it? what type of pump is that? how many are you expecting to get? That's a 600gph speed (if my math is correct), how long was the line you used to pump the water? and how narrow was the hose?

A way to clean it is to put the pump into water and use either mariotic acid or white venigar and run the pump in that solution over night. The next day, clean it off and it'll be like a brand new pump.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
