Bilge Plumbing

I've got a question about how my bilge pump outlets are plumbed. The electric bilge, manual bilge and sump are all plumbed so that they exit through one of the cockpit drain through-hulls. This seems like a potential problem to me since in I had to run both electric and the manual at the same time, it would overwhelm the capacity and back up into the cockpit. Is this normal? I'd like to separate them so there is some redundancy...Thoughts?
