I have a Baby Gen, the Nexgen 3.5 KW.
I used the same March pump my AC uses so one pump spare covers both, it is a 500 GPH pump I believe, in excess of what the generator
needs, more water coming from the exhaust
now but that doesn't seem to hurt anything.
I wired in directly to the generator
output, if the generator is making power, the pump is running, generator shuts off, pump stops, as simple as that. A good thing is you can't fill the exhaust
from over cranking as there is no water flow until engine gets up to RPM
. If you lost
your generator though, the water flow would stop is the only problem, but the over temp Murphy switch would shut it down.
I have yet to see a downside, only thing is the pump must be below waterline.
