Re: bilge pump system with mulitple bukheads???

So how is it done on major ships with water tight bulkheads then? I am trying to build redundancy into the pump system, so I have manual, electric, and engine pumps available. aft in one compartment.. if i have a pump system for each compartment, that would mean 12 pumps (three for each), and four exit holes instead of one (manifold). Phew! Thats a serious pump system for a 40 footer....
