Smart bilge sensor/switch
Most yachts still rely on primitive float switches to activate automatic bilge pumps, but these can be unreliable and won’t alert a vessel’s crew to a developing problem. Blue Guard Innovations’ new range of switches and sensors operate as a combined solid-state bilge pump switch and alarm, and includes a model with sensors that warn of fuel or oil in the bilge – to avoid unknowingly pumping pollutants overboard.
