Rule 500 GPH Automatic Water-Sensing Bilge Pump 12v
Water-sensing automatic bilge pumps work on resistance to the impeller as opposed to a float switch (when the water reaches a certainly level the float switch activates the bilge pump). Water-sensing pumps do not need float switch to operate, the pump will turn on automatically every 2 1/2 minutes for approx. 1 second to check for water. If water is present, the pump will sense resistance at the impeller and continue to run until all the water is removed. After that the pump will resume checking for water every 2 1/2 minutes. Water level is kept between 3mm (low) and 10mm (high).
Available in 12 or 24volt.
3 year limited warranty.
