I've been plagued by having a mixture of water
in my bilge
. My engine
, a 4-53 Detroit Diesel
, has a reputation (well earned) of leaking so much oil
that you know to add more when it stops. Actually, it's only a little, and most of what's in the bilge
from various sources, but even after running the combination through a settling tank the water discharge produces a USCG oily sheen no-no. I don't know if others have the same problem. After many tries, I think I've found a solution. New Pig, which makes all sorts of hazmat cleanup stuff, has a small box with 3/4" hose fittings and filter pillows inside that they say will absorb up to a gallon of entrained oil. The price
is $107. Anyone familiar with it? I'm going to give it a try, and report back if this is indeed a topic of interest.
