Live well pump works great

The pump fit into the space where the origial went, plus it now has an additional outlet to attach a sprayer to wash down the boat.

I go fishing usually for 8-10 days at a time 6 times a year.
I do not run the pump over night.
This pump is only good for 1 to 3 trips max and starts whining and then quits. Always have extra replacement moters, but what a nuisance trying to replace this pump while you are rocking on the ocean and your bait is dying.
Trying to buy and keep extra relacement moters and it's such a hot seller it's out of stock! Why is a replacement moter such a hot seller? Because it doesn't last!

        Comments about Rule Industries Rule Livewell/baitwell Pumps:

        pump stops running i have to take it off and smack it around to get it to work. the shaft holding the green propeller broke off. This is the 4th one i have had ( all the same) the only reason still have one is west marine keeps giving them to me for free. i would not pay a dime for this product!!!

            We use these pumps in our boats down here in Baja, and they hold up to the harsh heat and sea conditions.

                        I have had two 1100 gph. The first one burned up in two days. It actually melted on top. The second one lasted ten days. This is not acceptable.

                              Unfortunate that this product rusts out in less than 6 months. The shaft deteriorates quickly and of course the pump stops working. My bait dies, only clue is if it the water stops going into the live well while fishing, if it occurs overnight then my bait is dead by morning time. I've replaced the pump three times in 12 months. If you can remove the pump each time used and wash it down with fresh water, lubricate it, it might last longer. They need to used stainless steal for the shaft.

                                  I've been through 3 of these pumps in 3 months. Only reason I keep purchasing them is because that's all the marina had when I needed a replacement.
                                  I recommend using this product as a filler in your local landfill.
