I have two Whale Gusher pumps mounted to the aft wall of the engine compartment that drain out the manifold. I do not have a float switch, just individual on/off switches in each head.

H44 Sump pump configuration

Hi Everyone!

I presume all are getting their projects done in eager anticipation for Spring sailing!  For me it is much more of the same, knocking the projects off the list!

My boat, came to me with no sump pump installed.  How are yours configured?  Do you have both showers draining to a single pump box and pump?  Or do you have two?  Where are your pump or pumps installed?  Are they gravity fed to a separate box with a float switch in the deep bilge, just in front of the companionway stairs?

I am replacing a broken, above the waterline thru hull with a larger bronze fitting, and will install a high capacity rule pump and 1 1/8
