Re: Pumps do not do what you think

I think that's where the beezwax toilet ring and similar "stuff" can come in VERY handy. Staunch the flow, then use the pump to start getting rid of what's already come aboard or to deal with what little continues to come in.

Yachting Monthly did an interesting set of tests that might be helpful as you think this through:
