Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Capacity AMFA Bilge Pump???

I was under the impression the original model bilge pump is rated for 30 litres/minute (7.9 gal/minute).

The "lifting head" should be 10 metres and "self priming" should be 2.5 metres.

Sorry, I do not know the rating of the manual pump – I guess it depends on how fast you can move the lever J

Does anyone know the capacity of the AMFA Bilge pump, and the manual bilge pump? One of the insurance companies that we got a quote from , demand combined capacity of minimum 95 l/min. Most pumps capacities are usually rated at no lifting height at all, have not measured the total lifting height yet , but guess more close to 1.5- 2 meter which has a substantial impact on capacity.
