Help raising irrigation hose to pump
 
Hello, I am raising my pump by the river so it doesn't get flooded out. I have the pump raised up on some cement blocks. But the hose from the river to the pump is putting too much pressure on the pump and causing it to tip over towards the river. Only thing keeping it from tipping over is it being attached to the irrigation hose that leads to the sprinklers.

So I need to raise the hose leading to the pump so the hose is more horizontal leading to the pump. Something like a Y bracket attached to a 4x4 post. Any ideas??

Got a picture of this set up?
Trying to picture why a couple of elbows would not work.

I ended up putting a 4x4 post in to prop up the front of my pump. Sorry didn't post pics. Could still if anyone wanted to see
