Bilge Pump Exit - Why Not Use Sink Drain?
Hi all, I know this is probably a stupid question. I am installing a second, larger, bilge pump to handle real water issues (Rule 2000), to supplement my primary pump which is a 500 gph. My question is this: Can I run the discharge from my smaller pump into the sink drain thru-hull? It would shorten the hose run by a great amount. I know that it would require keeping this thru-hull open all the time, but are there any other issues that I need to consider? Of course I know the larger pump would exit in the normal fashion.
