Bilge pump

Featured Posts

Hi all, bilge pump working ok on the switch but not coming on automatically, anything obvious going on there? Gave it a quick clean but it still only kicks in for a second on auto then stops.

 

Cheers,

 

Brian

If it has a float switch then that could be stuck, gunged up or not floating. Also the microswitch could be faulty. If it’s an internal water level sensor then there’s probably little you could do. 

 

If you cant suss it then just buy a stand-alone float switch and wire that in.

Cheers, can't see a float switch, if there is one it's in a plastic casing (it's a Rule-mate 500) doesn't look blocked up. Will look at other options.
