another bilge pump butt

Postby stealfeathers » Wed Jun 05, 2013 9:29 pm

I did mine a little different. Im sure its been done. I wish i would have used regular wire.But i figured the cord would make it less likely to break. The weight at the bottom of the pump gives it a good rocking effect in between pumps of water. What do yal think besides the high visibility of the cord? It will be black when im done with it.

The floater has the battery, the on off switch is simply the positive wire hooked up to the battery.

I've done that. The two decoys are going to creep together and start bouncing off of each other. If you put something in the middle and tie the cord to it like a dowell rod that floats they stay apart and work pretty good. I used a 12volt gel cell in a goose floater. You might also try turning your pump discharge tube down. It will give just as much motion without spraying water everywhere, plus it stirs up mud and crap down low and makes the water muddy like feeding ducks in shallows do.

That works to, but can be a hassle to keep untangled with two lines and weights and a cord in the middle.
