Product Overview

Rule bilge pumps deliver dependable service in the marine environment

Rule submersible bilge pumps, such as the non-automatic 1500gph model you see here are universally recognized for their dependable performance. Outstanding features include submersible motors with non-corroding stainless steel shafts, water cooling and vibration-free centrifugal impellers with short-term run-dry capability. Pumps can easily be unsnapped from their strainer base for removal of debris.

In order for this pump to operate, it must be wired to a float switch or a water sensing switch. For remote operation, it can also be wired to a bilge pump panel switch. We offer a wide selection of bilge pump and panel switches.

The outlet port of this pump fits 1 1/8"ID hose. If your hose needs replacement, or for a new installation, check our selection of bilge pump hose and hose clamps.
