02 Bilge Pumping Systems INTRODUCTION Manual Diaphragm Pumps Jabsco Amazon Bilge Pump These are the traditional mainstay of small craft bilge pumping systems and can offer surprisingly good flow rates, as well as a variety of installation options. Yacht racing rules state that at least one pump must be capable of being pumped from the cockpit with all hatches shut. The best way to accomplish this is with a through deck kit, which allows the pump to be installed safely below decks while the operator pumps from above. A well-designed manual bilge pump is very hard to block due to its large bore hose and valves and one-piece diaphragm. The larger pumps in Jabsco’s line of manual bilge pumps are also suitable for ballast and waste transfer. Bilge Strainer 29290 Series Electric Submersible Pumps By far the most popular type of electric bilge pumps, submersibles give very high outputs, are cost effective, have low amp draw and are easy to install. They are designed to fit in the lowest part of the bilge and only require discharge pipework and electricity supply. However, flow rates decrease as the discharge head increases, so check our recommended maximum discharge heads, and if in doubt, always increase the size of the pump. Although our submersibles can be run dry for up to two hours, pump life can be extended by avoiding dry running whenever possible. All submersibles can be operated using a float or Hydro Air switch, and remotely controlled outside the bilge compartment by using a Rule switch panel. Electric Diaphragm Pumps These pumps are excellent for shallow bilge boats, where the water left behind by other types of pumps will slop from side to side. With the small size of inlet plumbing, they are very effective as bilge pumps, removing all but the last drops of water. Diaphragm pumps can be run dry, which removes the need to watch overboard outlets while the pump is running. The ability to self-prime means they can be mounted in an easily accessible, high and dry location to simplify installation and improve serviceability. Most models in the line are supplied complete with a Pumpgard™ strainer to protect the pumps from bilge debris

Electric Flexible Impeller Pumps Flexible impeller pumps make excellent bilge pumps, principally because of their ability to handle bilge debris without damage. Because of the robust design, many owners still use our 12 volt DC or 24 volt DC flexible impeller motor pump units that are up to 25 years old! Flexible impeller pumps also give the benefits of good flow, low cost, low size and weight, and are easily serviced and maintained. Most flexible impeller pumps must not be run dry, as this will damage the impeller and require replacing. However, the Utility Puppy 2000 and 3000 both allow a...
