    Bilge pump

    Hey guys, it was brought to my attention that I need a bilge pump. Being new to this, I don't know what to get. My ski is docked, so it'll be constantly outside. I want something that will work good w/out draining my battery.....any ideas??

    Sure it will work. Obama keeps telling us that machines are taking American jobs. I will watch you ski with siphon hose in hand for 220? A year plus benefits and a company RXP-X.

    Or you can take it to China or Mexico to have it done cheaper...

    your bilge pump would eventualy drain your battery if it cycled enough times but if it was running that much when it is in the water i say you would have bigger problems to worry about then a dead battery

    If you use a bilge with a float switch the battery will not drain unless its pumping out water. It just lays there as an open circuit. If you get one with a momentary on switch it will drain your battery in a few days.
