RE: scum in the shower sump sticking the float switch

Another thing you might do is to go to the root cause, meaning the soap you use. We use Campsuds on the boat. You can buy it by the gallon at a sporting goods store, and it's biodegradable. We have used it on our boat for sixteen years with no problems with the float switch. We use it in the bath, but it's also great for dishes. You might even send the dishes into the shower with your wife. Two birds with one stone.
