Good morning Richard,

Just out of curiosity, I was looking at the Whale Gulper Grouper Pump BP4574 you mentioned and it seems to be a "fish box" waste pump.
Do you think in case of problem the insurance won't try to argue and find excuse to not pay a claim?
I am asking because the captain that deliver my boat 2 years ago, replaced mine with a "waste water" and since I have been pretty disgusted with my insurance (Delassee)… (I am waiting before writing anything on the forum about this issue).

I have also talked to people where insurance used excuses (not related to anything) like 1 person had things stolen in his boat (while in storage).
The insurer ask if he removed the batteries. Reply: NO. (and why ask because the batteries were not stolen, nor was the boat) but the insurance refuse to reimburse because batteries where still there.
When ask to show where this was written on the contract (was not showing anywhere) the insurance stand still… And I am having a similar problem…

So just being on the cautious side, would hate to use a pump not use for this purpose and end up without coverage…

Any opinion?

Hi Eric,
the pump we successfully used is a Whale Gulper Grouper Pump

BP4574.  24 volt mounted on a plastic board on the
bulkhead.  We need a
hose to use a hose adapter to make it all work. We used the
Amel switch
and it worked very well for years.
All the best for the new
year.Richard Piller
