    Since the original sump pump box was a Rule product, this product was an easy install and fit perfectly, however,it is immediately obvious that this is much better than the originally OEM installed unit with updated Rule pump that draws less amperage, and a better filter easier to remove. I highly recommend this sump pump.

    unreliable float switch

    By Solly

    from Santa Barbara, CA

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

    • Installs Easily

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Low Usage

      The ultra float switch failed after being used 5 or 6 times. The 3 year warranty had expired and Rule would not replace it, even with this very low usage. I've replaced it with a Johnson switch; we'll see if it gives me longer service.

      Not Recemmended

          Best Uses

          • Large Boat
          • Low Usage

          My boat has two of these pumps. One is for the AC condensation and the other is for the Master State Room, shower & sink. I stay on the boat no more than 1 night per week, I have replaced the AC condensation pump twice in 3 years and the one for the shower has gone out again after I replaced it two years ago. This is very inconvenient and costly. Would recommend another option for disposing of this water on a boat.

                Inlet ports are known to break off over time if the hose a just a little bit overtightened.

                      This product was original equipment in my 2002 Sea Ray 320 Sundancer. It worked fine for about 2 years, then quit. I ordered a replacement, which only lasted 14 months. I ordered another, with an extended warranty, replaced 2 in 2 years. Guess what? it's out again. I just ordered a different brand. What a piece of JUNK!!

                              The thing didn't work correct out of the box,if you tap on the side of the housing it starts working then you have to tap on it again for it to stop pumping,gonna order an attwood and be done with this nonsense

                                  In the other reveiw "the pump was running", you have a clogged output hose, or more likly a clogged intake below the pump. Remove 4 top screws and the 2 clips that hold the pump in place, clean out blockage, reassemble, and you are done. That pump continued to operate even when flow was clogged. Rule make the best product on the market.
