    Which Rule bilge pump for GPR ?

    I searched the old threads and know its the Rule 500 I prefer the idea of the automatic one. Is this it ? http://www.boatersworld.com/product/...Bcibilge-pumps

    I understand the 2003 + boats have one installed from the factory - Does that mounting bracket work for the pump above ?

    this is what I have done on both of my GPRs you can get the pumps on Ebay for $40.00 at buy it now price I managed to get mine new in the low twentys bidding on them.
    the secound picture isn't clear what I had done was take the blue cover off and just keep the wire screen and screwed it fast to keep it in place, this was to get the pump and the float down lower.
    you will have to trim the splash guard so the pump will fit but it doubles as secureing device it keeps the pump from jumping up out of the holder (my holder fits so snug it won't slide out anyway)
    the beauty of this system is that its got its own float so it isn't starting and stoping to see if there is water in you hull wasting a little of your battery when running a total loss system and you still can turn it on manualy with a switch

    Yes, that's a good one. I highly recommend the automatic pump. Before you realize there's a problem and turn on your pump, it's usually too late. The auto pump turns on every 20 seconds or so and checks for water. You can buy this as a kit with a nice handlebar-mount switch from atlanticjetsports.com. I bought the factory plastic mount from the '03 and it worked fine.

    Thanks for the help that image will go along way for the bracket....

    02GPR - If using an automatic bilge why would I need a switch on the bars ?

    You need some way to activate/deactivate the unit. Otherwise, it will turn on/off as long as the battery is hooked up. That's not that big a deal, to be honest, because I've accidentally left mine on for a few weeks and it didn't kill the battery.

    But, I did install an inline, waterproof switch in the engine compartment. I just flick it on at the ramp when I'm about to put the ski in the water. Handlebar mounted swiches are cool, but waaaay too expensive for me.

    Rule makes a 750 gph unit that's only slightly taller than the 500 and fits perfectly in the stock GPR mount; the only problem is that it requires 5 amp circuit vs. 2.5 for the 500. Would anyone consider the 750, and would the extra drain require thicker gauge wire?
    Regards,
    Jay.

    PS. It's actually an 800GPH. eBay has one; item # 260082711863

    the stock bilge that comes with the gpr, does that still turn on every few seconds and check to see if there is any water in the hull when the ski is shut off?
    for instance if my ski is sitting in my driveway on my trailer is the bilge checking for water?

    also is this the sound that i hear when i shut the ski off?
