Gunk in the bilge

I had the same issue with my bilge pump just now and it turned out, as far as I know, to be a little hard chunk left over from last years projects that was sitting directly under the impeller in the base of the bilge pump. I'm assuming it fell out when I removed the top of the pump to see what was going on. Lesson I learned is to look for the physical culprit first before going after a potential electrical issue.
