I need to adopt that attitude. The only thing I like about Rule pumps is their compact size. The Attwood and Sahara pumps look a lot more robust and I'll be trying one of them when the next Rule pump fails - shouldn't be long now

If someone can find an intact strainer/base for a Sahara 500, I like to buy it, or sell 'em a brand new never got wet pump...

A heffalump diver stomped on my Sahara, the pump is still fine but the strainer got squished

I think the shells are a bit of a weak fit IMO .. I've had them seperate of their own accord .. (not defending your heffalump) .. and that happened when it was in the underdeck too .. after which it was flood-omatic time .. yay!
