After reading about how wimpy bilge
pumps are and looking at the specs for my pump I am a little concerned that my hose run may be too long. First my pump is a Rule
360 gph but the specs for the pump seem to put the output somewhere between 0 and 100 gph with a 12 foot hose run with a rise of about 12 inches. I think I might have to test the pump to check it's flow, I just am not sure how I should test it. Should I intentionally put some water
in the hull
to check it's flow? I am more concerned about it's pumping ability while the boat is anchored while I am not onboard.
