RE: scum in the shower sump sticking the float switch

Ya know... I used to think I would modify our 1977 Tollycrafts two showers drain systems by installing sump containers with float activated pumps... for auto drain while taking shower.* Then I learned of*too many boaters having to clean/service the sump and/or pump and its switch due to clogs that occur. *So... Im currently going to stick with the good ol straight-line pump that activates via pull switch adjacent to shower.* Seems to never have a problem!* However, some posts did offer good alternatives to help keep the sump and switch and pump operational!
