Product Details

Rule-Mate automatic pumps are available in 500, 800, and 1100 GPH (gallons per hour) capacities. These quiet and compact bilge pumps activate when the water level is 2-1/8".

The pump and solid state water sensing switch are in a single, compact housing. The sophisticated switch senses the dielectric properties of water but will not pump oil. Unlike standard computerized automatic pumps, there's no on/off cycling so no power is used until the pump comes on. A detachable strainer makes clearing debris quick and easy with easy access to the impeller area.

These 500, 800, and 1100 GPH pumps are available in 12V or 24V models.

Two of them in my brand new Hewescraft intermittently turning on. Had to disconnect both of them. Still under warranty but don't want to replace these with more junk. Don't buy!

Pump will not shut off after pumping wat
By Ron from Davie, Fl

I liked this unit initially. IT was easy to install and seemed like it would solve the problems with mechanical float switches. However, after one year, the pump would not shut off after pumping and would then drain battery. Found out this was a very commong problem with the solid state float switch. Apparently mfg knows of problem but will not honor warranty.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

The only pump I'll ever use
By CaptainSilva from Riverside, RI

I put two of these on my boat and eliminated the older pumps I had with the flimsy old-school float switches. A simple two wire hookup is all it takes. Anyone can install these. They only come on when the water reaches a certain height, not every 2.5 minutes like other pumps that can drain the battery. I also have them connected to a switch at the dash in case I want to use them manually.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
