          This pump is very slick, easy to install, and worked great........for the first half of the season. Stopped working properly ie. would run all night and drain the battery, or not come on when there was water in the bottom of the boat. Will buy again......hope I just got a lemon.

              Installed new 1100 pump to replace the one on customers vessel because it ran constantly on auto. I thought new pump would cure the problem, I did not. Pump is wired direct to battery. If power is turned off and then back on, the pump resets until the next time the auto turns on. Or, if you flood the bilge, it seems to work correctly. Can anyone help with this problem???????

              • Q:

                Does the rule 1100 need to be mounted level? My bilge and hull design is modestly V- shaped with the keel area 5/8 of a inch higher than my mounting location keeping the pump not quite level, please advise!

                • A:

                  I would strongly suggest mounting this unit level. The internal float that automatically activates the pump will most likely get hung up if not level. This would cause the unit to turn on and stay on, draining the battery for no good reason.

                  It comes with wiring. If the leads aren't long enough, I would suggest using new wires for a better performance
