On my 44 both showers drain into a common sump under the galley sink. There is a float switch in the sump that triggers the pump located in the engine room next to the bilge pump. 

The sump also is the drain for the refrigeration and in my case I have routed the air conditioning condensation lines into this same sump.  Keep your bilges dry!!!

Thanks.  I have 1 belt driven pump.  I wonder if both showers drain into a common sump on mine.  That seems to be what the plumbing plan shows.

Is there any automatic switch?  Mine does not come on even with the switch in the head pulled out, but I have not added water yet.

Hi Joel,

On my hylas 44 both sump pumps were located in the engine room on the same shelf as the Bilge Pump.

I give up.  Where is the pump for the forward shower sump?

PO had a habit of just removing things that did not work.
