Re: My Manual Bilge Pump is Useless
I completely understand your point. But I do have an automatic pump that works well, and I have a handheld pump that works much better than the whale gusher (although you have to go down to the bilge to pump).
The old pump has a metal plate that you lift up to get access. I cannot figure out how the rain water is leaking past it. I have seen the repair kit, but I don't know if that will stop the rain water??
Also, I am too big to get down to the stuffing box. And I am not going to get any smaller.
