At idle the water pressure at my house can keep up with the intake. At anything above idle it can not. The idea is that you have a reservoir of water for the motor to use. This way you can run a higher RPM without running the impeller dry.

If you have less then ideal water pressure and you are using a fake-o-lake or just pushing the water hose into the water intake you could run dry pretty fast.
