Hi Mark,


Let’s start at the beginning.  

Is the switch located in the cabinet containing the autopilot above the galley sinks?

Also, please include the boat name, type and hull number.

Cheers,

Jean-Pierre,


Thanks. Is manual in the up position? As my switch is not labeled that I can see anyway.

Best,
Mark

Hi Mark,


On my boat, the function is labeled AUTO or Manual.

In MANUAL, the pump operates full time.  In AUTO, the level switch activates the pump and empties the “sewer” until the  level reaches a predetermined position.

Good luck,

I tried searching for this, but couldn’t find the answer. My wife and I just returned to our boat and today I noticed that the bilge is running non-stop. I went to the engine room and noticed that the bilge switch appears to be turned on, but am unsure if I turn it to the lower position if I am turning off the auto-bilge or not. When I turn the switch off, obviously the bilge ceases to run, but not sure if it will kick in if water builds up again. Question is if turned to the botttom position, does that turn off the bilge pump including automatic?


THanks,


Mark
