I'm replacing my Rule Mate 750 bilge pump because it no longer works. I heard Rule-mate has had some quality issues and the pumps where not lasting long. So, I'm giving Attwood a try.First impression: it does not have a Stainless Steel strainer, like the Rule-Mates, to prevent small debris from entering the pump vanes, very disappointing. Also, pump body is much larger, making it very difficult to grasp the pump with one hand for removal from its base for periodic inspection. I suppose that's okay if you can get two hands on it, but in my case, I can only get one hand on it because of it's location. I do like the simple testing knob that tests the pump without having to remove it from it's base.
