Reliable and Programmable Bilge switches

Have you had problems with the common mercury tilt switches to control your bilge pumps? I've been thru lots of them, until I found this! I've used this product now for 10 years. Never had a failure. I have 3 - one for the main bilge, and one in each shower bilge. It's not just the float switch that's unique, but the controller.

It's programmable. So, for example, if you can't put the float at the bottom of the bilge, you can tell it to start the pump and run for X time after the level has dropped, so you still empty the bilge!

How about knowing how many times it switched on while you were away from the boat - it tells you! High water, low water, separate alarms, whatever you want.

Check it out HERE

Also many other bilge and tank control systems up to 32 tanks/bilges Have a look!

Thanks
Matt

Re: Reliable and Programmable Bilge switches

Do you have to have a separate controller for each sensor/pump?

Re: Reliable and Programmable Bilge switches

Well, yes and no. If it's only a couple, then yes. If you have a large vessel with multiple bilge areas, you can use a central controller. The small one is 8-16 bilge areas, the large one up to 32...
Most cruising boats use the separate controller and float for each bilge area, because it's cheaper and easier to install...
Cheers
Matt
