Bilge Pump

2 posts in this topic

I've got a Rule manually switched bilge pump. After almost losing the boat after a 6" overnight rain, I'm wondering what it would take to convert or change this out to a manual / auto pump. Can you add a float switch to the one I've got or change out the unit by replacing the "head" or "cartridge". Any thoughts?

Yes, you can add a float switch for them, any marina will have it (I don't have any, sorry).

But beware of fact it might fail if you keep bilge dirty, sometimes they get stuck with oil or other "junk" and won't activate.

My best suggestion is also to get a mooring cover, it will keep most of rain out of water, then bilge will kick in in case there's some left.

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
