Automatic vs non automatic bailer

Recommended Posts

My automatic Rule automatic bilge pump has stopped working automatically on my 2003 Redfisher 18. It was replaced 14 years ago when I  purchased the boat, but found out recently it works manually but not automatically.

My questions to the forum

My old pump is a Rule 1500, they do not seem to make the exact model any more so I need advice on a replacement

There is a lot of discussion about the durability of Rule pumps my old worked fine for a long time, but maybe the quality has changed. Any advise?

There is also a lot of discussion on built in vs seperate automatic switches. Again any advise would be appreciated. 

I want to thank the forum for all ot the help I have received over the years. The advice I have received has been invaluable.

Conocean, you are in the insurance biz, arent you?  Any stats on what pumps are most associated with sunk vessels?

 

(My guess is "broken ones" but maybe something less obvious. . .)

That's funny!! I have read about sunken vessels before. Most sink at the dock and the cause is faulty bilge pumps. That's why I have two independent bilge pumps in my boat. They are on separate switches, batteries, wiring and discharge hoses.
