2000 gph bilge
looking at getting this pump (i know its big)
question is has anyone ran one this big and where did you plumb it to?>
after breaking a shaft and nearly sinking the ski i dont wanna take any chances.
any input would be helpful

how big an outlet do you have to put on that thing?
I would rather have 2 pumps in place of one massive pump, my 2 cents

id avoid putting too big of a pump on a ski... it might drain your battery... FAST...
im sure 2x500-800GPH would do prefectly fine... and use less power...
(sorry i cant find the amp draw but the 500 has a 1.9amp draw....)
i presently dont have a bilge pump installed but already have 3 of them, one for my boat, (stationary)
one for my rxp (also going to be stationary) and another spare one, all three are the Rule10 brand 500GPH that i got from canadian tire...
if i were to install 2 bilge pumps, id but them on each side of the pump tunnel and mount them , one to the waterbox or somewhere there, and as for the second one... i dont know...(recall what was there)
as i usually try to avoid drilling any holes in ANYTHING... (well except for the hose)
hope i helped.

Don't buy that crap. I would go with a Minimum of 750GPH Rule-Mate Fully Automatic Bilge Pumps.

I already have a 500 rule for everyday use. I was wanting the 2000 for emergency use only. The 1100 seems to have some bad reviews. If I had 15 mins of emergency engine off use that would be sufficient. Jim do you use the 1100 ?

I have the 1100 and it works great. Same footprint as the 500, just a bigger discharge hose.
In fact I just bought another 1100 to upgrade the 500 in my conversion....

I use a 1100 Automatic, works great except for the switch i put on the manual wire which was "waterproof" failed.
