How to Choose a Bilge Pump?
Bilge pumps are found on most boats and are used to remove water from the bottom of the hull interior or the bilge, that collects there. When looking at the various pumps that are out there, you may be struggling to choose the best one for your setup. Consider the following points.
Choose the Right GPH: You need to look at the GPH for bilge pumps and choose one that offers the highest GPH that will fit on your boat. You never want to choose a pump with a lower GPH rate than the original pump installed by the manufacturer. The higher the GPH rate the quicker your boat will get rid of unwanted water, so often the stronger the better! Therefore, most serious boaters will say to go with the highest GPH pump you can fit in your bilge or pump area.
Importance of Bilge Pumps: It cannot be overstated how important it is to have a strong and reliable bilge pump on your boat and how you should maintain and check it regularly. Check them every time before taking out your boat. At the first sign of malfunction, you should replace or at least repair your bilge pumps. Simply put, if you don’t and your pump fails to work, your boat could sink.
