Rule bilge pump with water sensor

Anyone having trouble with the Rule 750A pump with the water sensor (no float switch) that continually turns on and off with no water present. 
Thanks,

    Yes, Just had one replaced under warranty. Painless after I talked to Patti. Her contact Information below. I had to send her email copy of receipt and they shipped a new one to me. I got new one in about a week.

    Everything Rule makes has turned to junk.

    I agree, switching to another brand with a float.

    The one's with a water sensor (no float switch) will kill your batteries because they constantly use power to check for water.  We will only buy one with the actual float switch (which is a manual on/off switch).  So even if they sent you a replacement of the kind with the water sensor, get rid of that thing.

    I don't recommend using any model with internal float or sensor.

    Buy a manual pump and install a Johnson digital "ultima" switch.

    If I put one of these in your boat, it's free replacement for life. Guess why? I've never replaced one. No moving parts, sealed design, roughly the same cost, it's a total no brainer. I realize these are strong words.... take em to the bank.

    Tony,

    I hate to be that guy but I did actually have one of those ultimas go bad.  I was surprised also but with my luck I get it.  I know they are superior and replaced with a new one.  All connections were 100 solid with no corrosion.  I even cut it out and twisted the wires to test it.  I agree its by far the best option though.
