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.

    This was placed in my Dinghy used to reach my mooring about 100 ft offshore.
    I was using this to replace a very old, same brand, bilge pump that had served its last days. I hooked it up and tested use. After a couple weeks, I took the Dinghy out and had it tied at mooring for 3 days. Although we had a light rain storm, I found my dinghy over 8inches deep with water (obviously an issue with the Dinghy). If I had waited one more day, my dinghy and possibly mooring line would have been under water.
    Very dissappointed and will be returning for refund, not exchange.
    I did give it 2 stars due to it working very well, when it did...

      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.
