Annie has had a single 2000 GPH bilge pump with an independant floater switch since I bought her. That has been OK but I've always wanted to have a redundant/coupled system. Two 2000 GPH bilge pumps wired to separate floater switches and separate battery banks, one mounted above to other. The upper bilge pump will kick on in the event the lower bilge pump cannot keep up.
Today, I engineered, designed, and built that system... AND IT WORKS!
NASTIEST JOB I'VE EVER DONE!
Fair seas and God bless!
