    I'm curious...
    why would you want a bilge pump in a jet ski? My ski never gets over 2-3 tblspoons of water whenever I go riding. Do you get a lot of water in your ski?

    When i ride on Lake Michigan it can be reaaaaaally rough. I've seen 8 foot swells on mich and heard of even bigger. Also, i would feel more comfortable knowing theres one in there in case the carbon seal gives or something cheap insurance i guess.

    Good idea for that type of riding...Thanks

    I have installed and used one of the type you show in a regular outboard boat. They work well and hold up for several years with probably more use than you will see in the ski.

    When the remains of the last hurricane came through Toronto I went out. 15 foot swells on Lake Ontario 30 foot rumored out 12 miles at weather buoy. Anyway 30 minutes into bliss I made an error. Machine over and 50 feet away from me. Bilge turned on by me at onset of fun. If I did not have a bilge that day my machine would have sunk and been ripped to pieces on the rocks hours later. Get a bilge. Go manual, and turn it on in 6 foot or more. That's my two cents.
