Problem: after the pump
empties the bilge
it turns on again after a short time.
System: Remote pump
, strainer and scissor switch in bilge
Thesis: After the pump operates some of the water
drains back into the bilge and is sufficient to reactivate the pump.
Check carried out: holding the float in the bilge up manually to keep the pump running until nearly all of the water
has been evacuated. That makes the cycle much longer but is not an effective cure.
1. Is there any way to prevent the back flow of water?
2. Is there any way to adjust the scissor switch? (I cannot see one)
3. Is there any other cause or solution to the problem?
