Hello, my name is***** will assist you today.
Does your boat have an auto float switch in it? Actually by the pump, not just on the dash.
how much water is in the bilge of the boat?
Is the rear of the boat algae covered?
Can you post a pic of the float set up?
The float balls should seat when the boat is in the water and not allow any in, the act as a check valve.
Are you sure that is where the water is coming in? I.E. you can see it from the inside of them?
Is there a live well in the boat?
Yes they are supposed to, but with the pump turning on, something is tripping the float on the pump.
Is the water more when it is running?
In the bilge that is.
Look to make sure that there is nothing blocking the float from returning to its resting position. A piece of debris in the bilge can cause a float to think that there is water in there when there is not any.
