Bilge Pumps

My boat has one bilge pump that is operated from the cockpit, just aft of where the helmsman would sit. It is a manual Whale Gusher 8. I want to add an electric with float switch. How do I go about sizing a bilge pump? My boat is a Pearson 28. Also, is it wise for it to be plumbed to use the same through hull fitting as the manual pump?
