  • Eco-friendly
  • Solid state water-sensing technology
  • Requires no float switch
Eco-friendly bilge pumps feature a solid state water-sensing technology that eliminates the need for a separate float switch. When bilge water reaches a height of 2-3/4", a sensor turns the pump on; when it falls below that height, it shuts off. The sensors work only for water - should an onboard oil spill occur, straight motor oil will not turn the pump on.

Bilge Bust Crimped all wires, installed in-line fuse, tested unit before installation. All worked fine. Decided to test it IN the boat? Automatic sensor fails. Bypass works fine. What a PIA. So much for the "no float needed" technology. Don't know what happened from when I tested it the first time and automatic kicked right on. Will be buying a different bilge pump. May 10, 2014
best auto bilge pump i have I have had many boats and many bilge pumps and this is by far the best yet. easy to install,works great. April 28, 2014
Float not reliable Installed this yesterday as per instructions and automatic float failed to initiate pump until water was just under my floorboards, far too much water in my boat. I'm taking it back today. I am giving it two stars because it still functions manually when bypassing the automatic float. June 10, 2013
Very rugged pump I won't get a chance to use this until spring but it feels like a very rugged pump and you can't beat the price. October 17, 2012
