Adding automatic bilge pump to manual bilge pump
I set up my Oday 272LE this way when i bought it. I keep the Y valve to auto bilge the whole time and use the manual bilge only for emergency ops if the need should arise or just to test it monthly. They key is remember to move the valve to correspond to manual pump or electric bilge mode obviously. a reminder by the switch is a good idea.. I didnt install any check valve as i wanted utilize the KISS principle for any bilge system.
