3/4 hose plugged.Pic of the 1/2 size bilge exit hole on the exterior of the hull and one of the 3/4 hose coming from the bilge. The hole above the old through transom exaust with the penny above it is plugged. The one to the right is the exit for the plumbing. Planning on buying two new bilge pumps and removing the old one.
on my daytona, i wired both up to the same switch and also connected the hot to the starter solonoid. it worked good because if i needed to force water out, i could do it with the switch. and both would turn on when the automatic pump would turn on, so that switch was never used. after having a lot of water in my bilge this weekend, i wil definately buy a automatic bilge pump this week!!i am also lookng at getting a new bilge pump. actually was looking at the automatic ones as well. i have a rule 500 gph on switch on my dash. was thinking about an upgrade to a 750 gph as well. would an automatic pump wire up the same with the existing wires?
and rivernut that is one of hell of a discharge line.
X's 2 on the Sahara , something you don't want to "Skimp" on TomThat switch is a poor design. Mine failed at a bad time and I hadn't wired it to operate on the switch also(my bad).
I went with a sahara, I think its 1250gph. Internal switch. Works very good. I keep my old mayfair 1000gph with aligator clips in the boat just in case.
