    Hi all, I want to start off by saying that I use Rule pumps for bilges, only because that is apparently the best out there! I have recently been looking at Vetus bilge pumps as an alternative, they are about a 1/4 the price:) but I do not know how good they are:confused: Tried to scour the web to find answers but to no avail. Can anybody out there shed some light for me??

    Vetus equipment is generally high quality and expensive .Dont know thier bilge pumps. They would be worth a look.

    Same. I always buy rule because that's what I've always had. Vetus is a good brand name and I'd look at their pump for that savings where you are at. I always add a second pump with its own auto switch wired directly to the battery. Cheap insurance.
