Mainship bilge pump float switches

I have owned my 1999 350 Mainship for 4 years, and recently got some water in the aft bilge area. It did not pump out until I hit the switch on the panel. I got a 5 gallon bucket and dumped it in the mid and forward bilge sumps, with the same result!

All 3 "SURE BAIL" float switches had failed.

Just an "FYI"!

Three at once seems unlikely. I would suspect something else.

RE: Mainship bilge pump float switches

Also might not be a Mainship specific problem. I would suggest you post this in a more generic topic area for better exposure.
