These are nice pumps. I think Rule
saw the Whale Super Sub pump and decided to go them one better. The Whale Super Sub pump is a really good pump as well. It uses the Magic Field Effect sensor.
Whale Supersub Bilge Pump 12V 650GPH
I recently installed two of the Rule Low Profile pumps into my own boat
I'm going to set one to use Magic Field Effect and the other to sense load on the impeller. I'll let you know which one I prefer in a couple of years. That is if I can't hear the pump turning on every 2.5 minutes. If the sound annoys me, I'll just set them both to Field Effect.
Thanks for clearing that up
I'd be interested in hearing feedback on the "annoyance" factor as well since I am considering switching to the same pump when my electric
one goes out.
