Here is a pump on the Sailnet site that might work well, and It's less expensive than the Jabsco pump. It doesn't list an internal check valve, but I think it would be more effective to put a check valve close to the intake anyway.

Have you considered building up some of the low spots with Epoxy putty or fiberglass? Obviously, you can't do it with all areas i.e., around Keel bolts, but it might eliminate some of the pools. I did this in my bilge to concentrate the water in one area and it works well.

It was a Rule with an exceptionally long hard freeze. The pump body cracked. Easy fix. I just dropped the spare in. The pump sits in a little pocket made just for it behind the keel that only holds about a pint of water when the pump is finished. I keep spares of almost everything for the boat. The bigger issue is getting rid of the knot meter. I don't use it anyway. I'm thinking a plugged thru hull.

The diapram worked great for the wife.
