Computer-controlled operation eliminates the need for a float switch, and takes the worry out of taking on water. Pump actually turns itself on every 2-1/2 minutes for approximately one second to check for water. If water is present, the pump's impeller senses the resistance and will run until all the water has been removed. It then returns to sensing mode.

I had a bilge pump already in my boat but it wasn't automatic. A neighbor has one of these and has used it for several years with no problems. Got mine in just before several days of rain and no worries of having to go to the boat to turn the pump on now. Worked great.

Can you hear it when it comes on to check for water? It would drive me insane if I could hear it at all when I'm out fishing. Even if just for 1 second. Every 2.5 minutes would make me want to tear it out and pitch into the lake. In my case it would be exposed as opposed to in an enclosed compartment like on a larger boat.
I have only left mine on "auto" for a week and I have not had any problems. Personally from a bad past experience I would highly recommend 2 batteries if you use a trolling motor much at all. Being stranded is no fun.
