sea_hunter They were designed to drain to the bilge sump. I rerouted ours to a sump box that also takes care of the AC condensor, fridge and deep freeze.

Mine have always been designed to go into the bilge! A couple quarts of water is no big deal.

so, ice box drain. pump impeller shot. replaced. pump runs great. however in testing I found out no amount of water was going through the pump.

after thinking things over I decided to find out where all this water was going

of course it didn't take long to see all that water was going in the bilge

now, here is the $$$ question

how the heck do I get to the bottom of the ice box to find the leak. I have no doubt it is leaking at the ice box drain or close to it.

anyone been there?
