Thread: 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??

i bought a automatic rude 750 off ebay for lime 50 bucks drilled in the rear portion of the hull by the trim and wired it strait to battery with inline fuse. has already pumped some water out, and after 2 weeks of sitting no drained battery

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.
