Best place to shop bilge pumps?
So where is the best place to shop/compare brands of bilge pumps? Who has the better prices, or are they are similarly priced?
Id like to get at least 1 pump, but i want to know that im getting a good, reliable brand and size/capacity. Ive never had to buy one before so I dont know which brands are the most reliable etc.
Plus, whats an average capacity for bailing an RXP when the carbon seal lets go?? I want to install at least 50% more bailing capacity than is needed. I want to do this mod once, feel secure and be done with it.

There was a sticky in the seadoo sections someone had killer how to that is the model I used. I used a 500 gallon but may have needed to use a 1500. Several others I know used this large of a bilge pump. By the way I bought mine from ebay.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the responses and links! I'm pretty much a brand whore and I try to go with the better brands when i can, not just the cheaper prices. It looks like Rule pumps cost more and are about as popular as any brand. Therefore, im assuming its a nice brand and will be reliable?
By the way, I notice that these Rule pumps dont kick on untill under 2 1/8in of water....from memory, that sounds deep enough to just about get water into the intake tube at the SCer, huh?
