    2000 gph bilge

    looking at getting this pump (i know its big)
    http://www.amazon.com/Rule-10-Marine...7249805&sr=8-1

    question is has anyone ran one this big and where did you plumb it to?>

    after breaking a shaft and nearly sinking the ski i dont wanna take any chances.

    any input would be helpful

    how big an outlet do you have to put on that thing?
    I would rather have 2 pumps in place of one massive pump, my 2 cents

    id avoid putting too big of a pump on a ski... it might drain your battery... FAST...
    im sure 2x500-800GPH would do prefectly fine... and use less power...
    (sorry i cant find the amp draw but the 500 has a 1.9amp draw....)

    i presently dont have a bilge pump installed but already have 3 of them, one for my boat, (stationary)
    one for my rxp (also going to be stationary) and another spare one, all three are the Rule10 brand 500GPH that i got from canadian tire...


    if i were to install 2 bilge pumps, id but them on each side of the pump tunnel and mount them , one to the waterbox or somewhere there, and as for the second one... i dont know...(recall what was there)
    as i usually try to avoid drilling any holes in ANYTHING... (well except for the hose)

    hope i helped.

    Don't buy that crap. I would go with a Minimum of 750GPH Rule-Mate Fully Automatic Bilge Pumps.

    I already have a 500 rule for everyday use. I was wanting the 2000 for emergency use only. The 1100 seems to have some bad reviews. If I had 15 mins of emergency engine off use that would be sufficient. Jim do you use the 1100 ?

    I have the 1100 and it works great. Same footprint as the 500, just a bigger discharge hose.

    In fact I just bought another 1100 to upgrade the 500 in my conversion....

    I use a 1100 Automatic, works great except for the switch i put on the manual wire which was "waterproof" failed.
