Bilge pumps equipped with automatic switches are stan-
dard on all Candia FS models. As the water level rises,
the automatic float switch will activate the pump.
When leaving the boat unattended for long periods of
time or during excessive rain storms, it is a good idea to
check on the boat for excessive water accumulation. Be
sure the bilge pump and automatic float switch (if
equipped) are operating properly. The operating time of
the bilge pump will be limited to the battery capacity.
While at rest, any bilge water accumulation may
flow forward. Therefore, operate the bilge pump
is at a substantial running angle. DO NOT al-
low bilge water to accumulate. Damage to the
engine or other components may result.
Periodically, clean the bilge pump strainers. DO NOT
allow dirt and debris to clog the bilge pump intakes.
Check operation of the bilge pump float switch often to
ensure movement of the switch is not restricted by de-
bris, portions of the hull, etc.
Wipe up any oil accumulation in the bilge prior to activa-
tion of the bilge pump. Pumping oil overboard will pol-
lute the water, and is subject to fine.
After winterization of the fresh water systems, be sure
the bilge area, bilge pump and associated hoses are
thoroughly dry. Damagetothehull, bilgepumpandother
equipment could occur if water is allowed to freeze in
C. Liner Drains
Liner drains are provided on models with fiberglass lin-
ers or floors. Fiberglass liners can be cleaned easily by
hosing the floor. The water will drain into the bilge and
be pumped overboard.
