Congratulations on your new boat. The Catalina 22 is a wonderful design; some 18,000 of them built, and you can get any replacement part for them easily from the Catalina Users Group in CA.
My Catalina 22 (poptop model) cockpit drains were piped overboard, not into the bilge. I fitted a bilge pump anyway for rain water and other water intrusion, but mostly didn't have to use it.
Only problem with the cockpit drains was in the fall when leaves would clog them easily.
