Bilge Pump Panel with counter/hour meter

Does anyone know of a bilge pump control panel that includes a counter and/or an hour meter?

I would like to be able to read a display that shows how long the bilge pump ran or how many times the pump switches on, when on auto.

Thanks,

z

Dont know of one, but IF you can find an hour meter in a panel and add a switch you've got it!

Counters and or timers can be integrated easily
MMES makes custom bilge panels (and other panels too, made mine...)

WaterWitch Inc. ( google) does a panel that counts the bilge cycles, even if you can't tell the length of each cycle. Half way house

Re: Bilge Pump Panel with counter/hour meter

On my boats I mounted an auto=pump so that the discharge came out into the cockpit . When I would leave the boat for the day I would place a five gallon plastic bucket under this discharge . When I returned it was easy to see just how much water that I had made .
When under way the pump water ran onto you feet to get your attention !

I installed one of these -- Bilge Pump Cycle Counter .. inexpensive and not re-settable (I just keep the value in the ships log).

Re: Bilge Pump Panel with counter/hour meter

Aqua alarm makes a nice one. In addition to a counter, it includes a delay to keep the pump running for (I believe) 6 seconds after the float switch opens. This is to help get the last bit of water out of the bilge.

Had mine installed about 9 months and like it.
