By far the most popular type of electric bilge pumps, submersibles give very high outputs, are cost effective, have low amp draw and are easy to install.
They are designed to fit in the lowest part of the bilge and only require discharge pipe work and electricity supply.
However, flow rates decrease as the discharge head increases, so check our recommended maximum discharge heads, and if in doubt, always increase the size of the pump.
Although our submersibles can be run dry for up to two hours, pump life can be extended by avoiding dry running whenever possible.
All submersibles can be operated using a float or Hydro Air switch, and remotely controlled outside the bilge compartment by using a Rule switch panel.
The new designs include:
- Higher Flow - optimized impeller to provide greater flow at the same amperage
- Built-in Thermal Cut-Off (TCO - provides added protection for pump and vessel
- Back Flow Prevention - reduces the amount of water left over in the bilge, reducing odor and helping keep your bilge cleaner
- Hidden Air Vents in the Body - helps prevent air locking in challenging plumbing installations and helps with the check valve
- Threaded Discharge - easier installation, easier maintenance
