Miner with Pump gets stuck at water

  • Hello.
    I placed a pump with empty cells next to a miner.
    When the miner gets to water, it just fills up the cells and pump then does nothing.
    I went to the bottom to see what's happening and every time the miner sucks up a water block, that water block is replaced by the surrounding water, so the pump just keeps sucking the same block over and over.

    Is there any way to get through water?
