Maybe you have a different kind of pump than a Pitcher pump. A picture would be helpful.
My pump looks exactly like the one in your avatar and has the parts that I attached.

"Pipe" was bad choice of words. I was referring to the 2" plastic line that connects to the bottom of the pump and extends into the water below.

In this case, what do you mean by "turning over?" It seems secure and I don't see how anything could move out of place. Just to make sure, this picture is what I'm speaking of. The brown piece on mine is rubber instead of leather.
