    automatic or manual

    I want to install a bilge pump in my RXT but I don't know which one to go with, automatic or manual , what are the pros and cons on both.
    Where should I mount it?

    Most of your automatics have a manual bypass. So you can have both options with a three way switch.

    a bilge pump should always be mounted at the lowest point of the hull when planing, which would be right at the back, but it is rare for a pwc hull to need one unless your riding in extreem waves, or you have a leaking hull. bill

    I always add one, because you never know. I have seen too many driveshaft seals and cooling hoses start leaking after going out for a long ride. Its nice to know that if a leak dose devlope that you can flip a switch or that it will automaticly start pumping water out of the hull.

    Go with the automatic man!! I have the manual and one time the exhaust popped off, I did not notice it until too late and had to turn it on when the hull was half full with sea water!

    If I would have had the automatic one that would not have happened!!!!!
