Heading out on the water always comes with risks. Everyone knows the basics of water safety from checking weather conditions before you head out to always packing a life jacket, but there is a lot more you can do to ensure you're always in the clear when you take the boat out. It's crucial that you have a working bilge or marine water pump to suit your vessel before you leave the shore. In case something does go wrong, you'll be fully equipped to deal with the situation. Consider a few of these different aspects of a marine pump and what you'll need to look for when you make a purchase. Size of Your Boat The most obvious thing that will help decide on what Mercruiser water pumps you need is the size of your boat. Usually a boat that is large enough to head out into deep waters will come with a standard pump to suit, but in case you are buying used or are just unsure, it's good to consult with a dealer about your needs in terms of size. Electric vs. Manual Suitable for large boats, electric marine pumps take all the effort and stress out of a dangerous situation through sheer efficiency. It's almost essential that you have an OMC Cobra Outdrive onboard if you're operating a larger boat. Manual pumps are usually a good idea for a backup or, if you have a kayak or canoe, in case of capsize on a single or dual person vessel.

Efficiency Talk with your dealer about the GPH or litres per minute that the pump operates at and make sure it's enough for your boat. Requirements are different for every vessel and the efficiency of each pump varies depending on the brand and model that you choose. Be safe on your boat and don't leave shore without a marine pump and backup to protect yourself and any passengers that you're carrying with you .
