I have a 2002 SO 43 DS... same problem... mine is definately factory installed. I like the small sump and the fact the power is wired to the breaker. What I don't like is the outlet hose is about 6 ft long and empties just below the gunwale.... sump fills, float rises and pump comes on until sump is mostly empty. float drops, pump goes off and the remaining water runs back down into the sump.... thus the pump comes back on and the cycle repeats itself undreds of times unles I reach down and hold the float up for a minute after the sump is empty.... resolution.... check valve.

FIXED.
