ME 101: Flooded suction always best. ME 102: Management will do anything to save a dime. Those rules may be reversed.
When the pump was a manual one activated by stomping on a squeeze ball on the floorboard or on a piston pedal extending to an under-floorboard mechanical pump, running dry was not tragic. Windshield washers were and are a great innovation—right up there with electric wipers. One must be careful not to aggravate the folks in the car behind you with overspray at low speed. Drivers of open convertibles seem to be especially sensitive to washer fluid baths. And now one can buy a gallon of blue windshield washer fluid in CA for $1.69 guaranteed not to freeze down to +32F. Whatever happened to 88 cents for a gallon of 50-50 methanol? I recall older cars even having a rack in which to store a glass bottle om blue methanol with some detergent in it.
I see that black reproduction F**d bags are readily available with a bottom outlet and at a bargain price. Additional info indicates the F**d logo info can be removed with solvent. Seems like Jiffy Jet logo & info could then be applied by a skilled graffiti artist. Only your hairdresser would know for sure.

The reason for the hole is probably that I have noticed the small motor seals will tear up or seize if spun dry . With hole on top that can happen. Then you get a drip at motor . Motor pump if empty might not make a vacuum to lift the water . Hole in bottom assures prime and stays wet
