    Bilge pump bracket

    For those that aren't using the OEM bilge kit, how are you mounting the bilge pump in the hull? Are you making your own bracket or gluing the pump basket in with 5200? I find it hard to justify 125 for the bilge kit, and seadoo doesn't sell just the bracket. Plan on installing some form of pump when I get the 230.

    Guidoo, what size fuse are you running? Also I plan on using an automatic pump that cycles itself or one that has the built in float switch. Thinking 500gph should be enough

    5amp. I'm using a Rule 25S. Also using a control switch on-off-on. No need for it to be on while on the trailer.

    I use Johnson Ultima Bilge, on/off/auto, solid state electronic trigger switch so no float to get stuck.

    But if its automatic won't it be off anyways when on the trailer? Or do you mean if residual water builds up? Also what gauge wiring do you recommend?

    The Rule 25S momentarily turn on every 2.5 minutes, if it senses no load it shuts off. With it being wired directly to the battery it'll continue to cycle. Adding a switch prevents it from draining the battery when not needed.

    So if you're unlucky with timing you'll be sinking for two and a half minutes before it kicks in?

    I made one out of aluminum that bolts under the water box bracket.

    From the manual:

    Rule

    Fully Automatic Bilge Pumps

    Manual
    FEATURES
    Through advanced electronic technology, Rule Automatic Bilge Pumps eliminate the need for a separate switch to
    activate the pump. Once power is supplied, starting and stopping is completely automatic. The pump checks for

    water every 2 minutes by running for a second and measuring load against the impeller. If water is present, the
    pump remains on until the water is removed. Thereafter it resumes its 2 minute check cycle. The pumps feature
    two positive leads, one which is automatic and one which can manually override the pump and turn it on at any
    time.
