Automatic Bilge Pumps
Bilge pumps can be the ounce of prevent that helps boat owners avoid a major insurance nightmare. Automatic bilge pumps are required in boats over 20-feet long with sleeping accommodations. They literally work while you sleep so bilge pumps are considered lifesavers. Wholesale Marine recommends that you install these automatic sentinels in your boat, whatever its size.
That’s because the pumps are safety and warning devices that help boat owners to be fully prepared in case of the unthinkable: onboard leakage that could lead to your boat sinking. Automatic pumps detect when bilge fluids have exceeded safe levels, or in the case of a leak. Bilge pump float switches automatically activate the pump once the water level rises above a certain point and turns the pump off when the water level falls.
