    Comments about Rule Industries 12V General Purpose Centrifugal Pump:

    What a great pump! Moves a TON of water! You just have to keep the inside diameter of the pipe your using at 1 1/2" all the way through and you will get excellent water flow. Mak sure you mount the pump below the tank you are pulling from so the pump stays primed.

    Also, this pump can be submerged but DOES NOT HAVE TO BE. When I was searching for a bilge pump that could be mounted outside the tank I came across this pump, but I noticed that nowhere in the instructions did t say that it could be used outside the tank. I ordered it anyway and now I'm happy to report that it can be mounted outside the tank, it just has to be positioned below the water line. Fantastic pump!
