Thanks for all the suggestions.
The rule bilgepump that I have lasts approx 3 months so each season I have to replace at least two of them. I use Deutsch connectors but they are not as waterproof as the advert says. I am kind of reluctant to solder new connections each time although I agree that this would probably be best. I will look at the other connector brands.

Which starts the question on are there better bilge pump brands than Rule ??

How do you connect the new pump to the plug/socket? Soldered joint?

You're very loyal to the brand.
I'd be tempted to try something different at that rate. Are they replaced under warranty?

Bulgin

I had the Bulgin ones in the back of my searider for the A frame lights and bilge pump.

Very good but you have to have round cable for the gland on the plug to seal.

Me too - very impressed with them but still fill them with vaseline/silicone grease.

Sure-seal

I would go for the "sure-seal" made by ITT- Cannon, you can get them from RS and Farnell. Crimp the wires on then back-fill the connector with hot glue and cover with heat shrink sleeve. Should keep all water out!

Unfortunately the connector is not allways waterproof causing the bilgepumt to short out, with the expectable consequences.
I have read many posts on soldering/crimping solutions but these are all (semi) permanent. Does anybody know of waterproof connectors - that are disconnectable - which really are waterproof ?

Thanks
Hi quickflash , i use bullet connectors with a sleve on, before you push both ends together fill the sleve with waterproof grease, it stop water getting inside, hope that helps
