Product Description

The complete kit for an electronic bilge system on a kayak.  A must have for your boat!  Battery (Lithium Ferrous Oxide) and charger available separately or use a 1.3 AmpH lead acid Gel Cell.  

Rule Pumps 25D, Non-Automatic 500 GPH fully submersible 12 volt DC bilge pump offers many design features while keeping size and cost to a minimum. Especially popular on smaller craft, they are unmatched in pumping power and longevity. It features an easy clean snap lock strainer, silent and vibrationless operation, anti-airlock protection, compact, efficient long life motor, marine grade blocked wiring, ignition protection, no burn-out when run dry and rust and corrosion protection.

Package includes:

  • Rule Pump Kit,
  • Pelican 1020 Battery Box,
  • MagnetX Switch (60cm lead)
  • Bracket 

This kit is suited to a single kayak. If you wish to install in a double kayak (either one large pump or 2 pump-1 switch system) you will need a bigger pump (Rule 800 or 1100) which requires a bigger battery (gel cell not lithium) and bigger battery box if you are running off the same switch - call us for advice. [or install 2 stand-alone systems for each cockpit!]

This kit includes the new Rule pump with an oval rather than circular profile - does not fit old Rule Pump brackets. 
We now have our own bracket designed to fit the pump against the bulkhead.

Lead length - the lead is designed to go between the Magnetx switch and battery box, both of which will be in the day hatch (rear hatch if no day hatch). If the pump needs to be mounted at the forward bulkhead (at your feet) generally the Magnetx switch and battery box will still be in the day hatch but this means the pump lead may be too short (it is about 800mm) - if you are mounting the battery box near the pump in the front hatch this fixes that issue (if you are able to reach to mount it there - size of your hatch!) but you will need a Magnetx switch with a long lead (3m available) - contact is to discuss if you need to do this.

We recommend Sikaflex 291 for fixing the Magnetx unit under the deck of composite kayaks. For plastic kayaks you may need to add some bungee, mountings and screws (not supplied) as not much sticks to polyethylene / rotomoulded kayaks.

A note on Magnets - the magnet used here is a simple one from a craft supplier - replacements can be found at Riot Art & Craft or similar stores. We DO NOT recommend the strong Rare Earth Magnets - they will cause the reed switches to warp and stay permanently on or cease to work.

  1. Bilge Pump first time installer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2021

    It was fairly straight forward to install, the system is simple once you find the right place on your Kayak. i am installed in on my plastic Kayak which worked well. need to buy chopping boards to ensure strong area to connect between the foam, didn't work trying to glue/silicon to hull the main electricity box. Help contact was great.

    A great package to install an efficient bilge pump into your kayak so that you can keep the boat upright and/or moving while the water is removed.
