    Help Picking a Bilge Pump Spot

    Friday we are picking up a pair of GTX S 155s. This after blowing the engine in my wife's 2005 GTX. The first thing I want to do is install bilge pumps in the new skis. I have no experience with a suspension ski. Can anyone tell me the best place to install the pump. The battery is in the right rear compartment, so I don't think there is enough room there. What about the left rear compartment? That one has to be unscrewed to get into, so don't know about that one.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I had Riva install one in my new '14 RXT-260 and the tech put it in the lowest point of the hull which is between the fuel tank and the front motor mount. I don't know if there's the same space available in a ski with the suspension configured.

    Bilge pump needs to be in the rear of the ski because that's what will fill up first. You'll have to have a ton of water already in the ski for one in the middle to start pumping.

    This is where I installed my bilge pump.
    Basically it's between the exhaust and the carbon seal. Not sure about a suspension ski.
