Re: Electic Bilge Pump Installation

One simple way to get the water overboard is to replace the tailpiece on one of your sinks with a "Branch Tailpiece For Dishwasher" and connect the discharge of the pump to discharge for the dishwasher waste. On many boats this will allow the discharge hose on the pump to be shorter and the height of the lift less. Both increase pump performance. A branch tailpiece is less then $4.00 at Lowe's or HD.
