These submersible bilge pumps have a three year warranty but their weakness is in the wiring as it leaves the plastic pump body. While using four such pumps in a recent salvage excersise two packed up for this reason and there is very little wire left to make a repair before it enters the sealed pump motor. A simple remedy is to cable-tie the wires to the outlet pipe, so even if flexing in icy water causes the wire to break there is plenty left to make a decent repair.
