It's all a matter of opinion I guess... hard to beat a Rule though!

rule is oem in most apps because they are rated to run dry. i have had the cheap ones actually catch on fire.

I went with 2 Rule Mate 750 as the 1100 requires a much bigger hole. I didn't want to drill that big of a hole into my hull. The way i have my 2 750gph setup is the automatic is connected to the battery at all times, and the manual wire is connected to a switch so i can test the pumps before I get into the water. Also if one of the pumps fail, the i have my other pump as a backup.

Two smaller pumps is the way to go IMO... I went with the largest pumps that I could get that used 3/4" outlets.
