Blue Guard Innovations Bilge Pump Switch w/Oil & Fuel Detector - BG-ONE



Sku: 77006

BG-One Oil and Fuel Detector with
Smart Bilge Pump Switch

The BG-One integrates with the bilge pump system to selectively pump out water and not oil or fuel, preventing the vessel from accumulating water and aiding in the prevention of costly oil or fuel spills. The BG-One was developed in collaboration with the marine industry needing a reliable, long lasting bilge pump switch. Having no moving parts or float switches that can easily be damaged, the BG-One will automatically turn off the bilge pump when oil or fuel is detected before a costly spill occurs. The BG-One will connect to any 12 or 24 Vdc bilge pump and alarm panel on the market today. The BG-One is CE and ISO 8846 Marine Ignition Protection Certified, tested to ABYC-1500 standards. Patented technology.
