Livewell Pump

4 posts in this topic

The Rule livewell pump in my boat stopped working last week in the middle of vacation. I pulled the cartridge yesterday and cleaned some line and sand out of the impeller. It ran after being cleaned.

Now that I know how easy it is to remove the cartridge I'm wondering if this cleaning is a long term fix or if the pump will fail again soon because of damage done by the fishing line?

Does anyone have any experiance with how long a pump may last after being frozen by line and sand?

This is my second run in with fishing line this year, earlier I picked up about 50 yards of it behind my trolling motor prop. Please put trash line in your pocket or tackle box don't let it blow out on the water!

No idea how long it will last. Does your livewell intake have a threaded -on screen on it? They're pretty cheap and do a good job of keeping the bigger chunks out of the pump.

You should check your fuse for your pump, before it burns up the fuse should pop.

We go through about 3-4 a year total between 15 guide boats running most days.

If you are concerned just buy a replacement pump and throw it in your boat glove box. If it breaks on your next vacation, you will have a spare.

    •   Lol been making them for years.  Funny you were just able to "get it".  
    •   Yep only you and the club "get it".  
    • He was looking better but then last night happened and it reminded you the last couple seasons have been just bad after a promising start a few years back. Heck I might even swap him for one of the Jets goalies, they all have been terrible but with a competent D they might work in a pinch.
    • D2E learned how to make his own memes, this should be entertaining.

    •   Yes, please. I have no faith in Kuemper even in spot duty. He really does have the talent, but he's too much of a head case. The Francisco Liriano of hockey? Lol. Last night was a dumpster fire (although that fourth goal wasn't his fault, it still rattled him--we can't have that mentality on any level, even if he sees the ice very infrequently).
    • Sounds like we have pretty serious interest in Latavius Murray from Oakland. I'd be all for that. Good runner, decent receiving back, and good pass blocking back. AKA, a complete RB and a 3-down guy. At 27, he's not a super long term solution, but for 2-3 years I'd take swing at him. This draft is solid at RB, so we can draft and develop while Murray and McKinnon hold down the fort.   As for AP, I have so many good memories, and he might even be poised for one of those bounce-back type years where he rips of 1300 and 12 TDs, but I just have to believe that should be done somewhere else. He flat out doesn't fit this offensive style. We need a more well rounded back (Murray or someone like him). Hang up your spurs in Texas, AP. Thanks for the good times.

    • A lot of people don't get the political extremist either, probably more of us leaning away from the parties than people doubling down on them, not to mention the 70 some million that just watch form the sidelines. Just because people actually voted for idiots like Trump & Clinton doesn't mean they were happy to do it. One could even say they were forced into it which all of us really were because of the systems in place. But hey you keep on spinning it any way you'd like.
