Bilge pump replacement?

Seems mundane to ask for recommendations on a replacement bilge pump, but some reading suggests that the newer Rule-Mate pumps aren't as reliable as the older models (of which I have two in jet ski's that work great). My stock rear pump is seized in the X1. Anyone strongly recommend one model or another as a replacement? Thanks!

Not sure where you heard that. I've had no issues with my replacement Rule 750. Same screw pattern as the old one and you can depin the connector and make them plug and play.

Or just use the one off of your old pump.

Thanks for the recommendation. While online reviews aren't everything, the reviews for that pump are pretty low, and it would seem there is a common theme to them. That's why I thought I'd ask for other ideas.

Anyone used the Attwood pumps?

How about the seaflow (seems really inexpensive comparatively):

In general, the reviews at West Marine on the Rule and Attwood are dismal. Hoping to find something reliable, if such a thing exists.

I'll be a Magpie and say what has already been said. Seaflow is a nice unit. I put this one in an older boat. Only thing that I had to do was get a longer discharge hose. No big deal. $30.00 from Amazon.

Screw the cage down into place and the pump casing just snaps into the cage.
