I need to replace two of my ballast pumps. It pooped out on my this weekend. I currently have a Rule 1100 gph aerator pumps and would like to replace with the same. Where can I get these pumps? Thanks in advance.
Nick, how did you plumb your system using this pump? Right now I'm running a couple jabsco ballast puppies and I need to replace one but they are so dang expensive! If I could use a rule4000 in my system I would be stoked. Any info would be great.
Just run the water in to the pump .... then from the pump it T's ... 1 part to the front, 1 part to the v-drive sacs.
the V-drve T's again to the back sides, the front T's again to the bow and ski locker. Each has its own little valve to fill/empty only certain parts. The only issue was getting the outles of the rule4000 (3") down to the size for the bags (1") .... we just had to use some PVC 3->2 then another 2->1
Then to empty we just have two tsunami pumps for old.... they go fast enough with gravity on their side.
ok so, I want to use 3-4 aerator style pumps. I was worried about priming but realized I have one impeller pump which came with my boat. I came up with the attached to be able to prime the aerator array with the impeller pump. Anyone have any thoughts? I will obviously have a ball valve on the through hull.
