7 posts in this topic

It stops automatically when it senses that there is no more water. It works flawlessly as long as your battery is good.

It kickes off and on as long as it has power to it. I hooked mine up on a switch and turn it on when Im using the boat and off when not using the boat. Theres another wire that bypasses the float switch which I didn't hook up

If it runs all the time, you have a huge leak in our boat.... if not, the float switch is in the wrong position. I never replace my original pump... this models hose fitting was too small. I do remember reading that there were 2 setting. I'd contact Rule or search the web for a printable pdf file of working instructions

J-While your pump doesn't actually run all the time, it will continue to "sample" every 2 minutes or so. Your options are ;1. Wire in an on/off switch somewhere; console, dash or wherever2. you will manually remove a lead from your power supply.
