How do I turn this pump on?

I bought a house a year ago that has a water feature in the back yard and I have not yet figured out how to turn it on. On one end there is a little pond. On the other end there is a little house thing with some pipes and it looks like the water is supposed to get pumped up from the pond and then poured out for the house thing. There is an outlet in the little house but I can't find anything to plug into it. We have tried every switch in the house with no luck. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

If you look at the pipework...... there is a white elbow. Directly below that is a gray PVC union (coupling). It doesn't look like there is anything attached to it. That would probably be where the pump would connect to the system and then just plug in.
