Fluid driven reciprocating pumps often make their suction, or return stroke, faster than the power stroke. This is liable to case incomplete filling. The discharge, or power stroke will then begin with shocking pulsation. A suction damper will also enable you to pump much faster.
Mount Suction Dampers so that any small bubbles do not collect in them, cause the pump to loose prime.
