B45 Oceanis, added redundant bilge pump

I became so sick of the water flowing back into the bilge from the stock bilge pump (Rule) that I decided to upgrade to a high quality Whale diaphragm pump. I kept the Rule but ripped out the check valve that it was installed with. Check valves a no no, especially with centrifugal pumps (Rule). The Whale has an integrated check valve but if it fails the Rule pump is there to cover. (btw - the check valve that came with the Rule never worked anyway).

Here are the pics:

I think you mean the pump photo not the last pic which is your standard SeaDog bilge switch. The pump is remote from the strainer and sensor.

Here is a better description of the Whale Gulper IC

Right, that is actually the fuse for the entertainment radio. Why they did not simply use the fuse system in the + bus bar is beyond me. That is on my list to fix.
