CC21 bilge pump

Anyone know if there is an auto function on the bilge pump? I’m collecting a couple inches of rain water while in a lift. It pumps out fine when powering up the pump but would like to stay dry.

    This does have an auto float.  The water level will reach an amount and auto trigger the float switch.  This will not be a dry compartment.

    I would test with a water hose. Add water up to 3-4 inches in the hull and watch the bilge pump. When water reaches about half way up the pump, it should kick on.  It is hard wired to the battery. If it doesn’t kick on as water reaches 3/4 of the way up the side of the pump (3-4 inches) you have a problem. Inspect, fix or replace the pump. Most are just plug and play replacements. Good luck.
