Product Description
rule The Rule-Mate series of Automated Bilge Pumps features a pump and a non-mercury float switch in a single, compact housing. When the float rises, the pump turns on. There is no on/off cycling and, therefore, no power use until the pump comes on. The pump remains on until the float drops and the pump senses no load against the impeller. Snap-off strainer for easy cleaning. 3/4" hose output.

      works well

      make sure that you put the bottom of the old ( being replaced) against the new and drill holes; so that the old screw holes can be used to instal the new product.

      My buddy is on his second one, neither work in auto mode with the appropriate water level in the bilge and test sink. Works fine in manual mode, simply does not sense water. Kinda scary if installer fails to check. Test switch does not work either.

        Comments about Rule-Mate Automatic Bilge Pump RM500 - 500 GPH:

        After reading all the reviews I found this automatice pump works as advertised. I did not purchase the switch panel as recommended. I used a lighted led SPST toggle switch. The third lead from the pump I ran to this switch and ran power to the switch and ground wire. I think the problem most folks find difficult is forgetting to run the ground lead. I have under my dash of the boat and area that I setup for grounds. Just run one wire back to the motor. I use a terminal block for all my ground leads. Thinking about doing this for my power leads. Anyway, the auto pump starts and will keep pumping until just about all the water is gone.
