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 2 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.
