My boat didn't have an automatic switch either. So while it was on the hard I emailed and asked the yard to do it. I even had the new 3-way panel switch, the floater, and appropriate length of cable on the salon table for them. When I got to the boat they had installed and completely new 2nd bilge pump, plus a new through-hull aft and charged me over $500 for the job. To add insult to injury, the new switch/pump (a RULE 750, I think) is so far down the bilge that the backflow after the pump turns off is enough to turn the durned thing back on, so when set to auto it will never stop running!
I'm sure there are a couple of lessons in there...
