He ended returning it as he forgot that he would have to go to the back hatch to turn it on :lol:

looks like the manual bilege pump we ae using is the same, just differen't branding on it.

Probably a good thing. It's rated at ~300gph but only lasts 40 minutes!!

And it takes 12 hrs to charge?? Surprising.

Probably only enough juice to drain a full hull one time.

I got my electric bilge pump components ready to be installed. I decided on locating the Attwood 500Gph pump in the rear of my TI from personal experience and other members claiming water accumulate in the rear of the boat. My issue is where to install the discharge port. I am not using a check valve. I am considering using a rubber scupper valve to stop some of the water from coming back into the TI. At this point, I am thinking on drilling and placing the discharge port all the way in the back right behind the main sheet pulley.

Any thoughts / suggestions? Any member that rigged their yaks with electric bilge pump here? Can you share your install? How did you resolved/minimized water getting back into the hull from the discharge port when in rough sea?

Thank you for you help!
