Rule pumps come with a brown, brown with white stripe, and black wires. Black is negative, brown is positive (for automatic operation), brown with white stripe is switched positive for manual operation.

This is DC, not AC. Reverse the polarity and the pump will run in reverse and not function properly.

Rule has an installation wizard in the Product Support section of their web site at Rule Support Centre > Rule - ITT. It explains exactly how to wire your pump.

Simple sat here with a beer but not when I was on the boat in the rain an hour ago. Thanks for simple clear answer. My first visit to the site was ten minutes ago. Good Luck. Peter
