Did Not LastI installed this pump on my boat and it quit the second time I took the boat out. The hardwire still works but the auto switch quit working. When it was on my boat it only kicked on a few times and when the pump was running it didn't have the power to get the water out so it kept humming until I took a cup and got the water down so the switch wasn't activated. My guess is I received a defective pump. Regardless I bought another brand and it works much better.

How does this pump mount? Is there an explosion view?
