Mr. jw. I've found that a pressure washer can be a good thing to clean your bilge but might I suggest a general cleaning with just a hose nozzle, a good detergent and a shop vac whilst saving the PW for stubborn spots. With 1500lbs+ pressure, "stuff" gets spread/blown all over the place sometimes making a more widespread mess than what you started with. What I've done is the above and localized the PW over spray to certain areas by means of a cheap poly tarp over the stubborn spots.

You could also think about a cycle counter. Tells you how many times the pumps actually turned on in a set period.
You thought you were dry. You weren't. Counter would have told you
