JRO, That's pretty harsh.
I do own several boats. I've owned boats since I was 12 years old. I've sold Rule products for more than forty years. All of my bilge
pumps are equiped with Rule Float Switches.
I don't make money
when I replace a bad switch for free. I lose the cost of the freight to get it too me, I lose the cost of shipping
it back to Rule, I have to pay the clerk to handle the transaction and I have to pay my shipping
clerk to box it up.
If I was getting a lot back, I wouldn't carry it. If a Rule float switch is failing every couple of months there is a problem somewhere else.
That said I think the Rule is a good value for the money
but there are better switches out there. I usually recommend the Ultra Pumpswitch Jr.
Ultra Pumpswitch JR
A lot of people don't want to spend that kind of money and the Rule switch is a good value.
