A submersible bilge pump is vital for Safety

Bilge Pumps are used to remove bilge water which comes into the boat from rough seas, rain, hull leaks and spills. Bilge Pumps come in different sizes and configurations depending on the type of boat. If there is more than one compartment on your boat, multiple pumps are required. Bilge pumps are essential for getting rid of unwanted water that can build up in the bottom of your bilge. Historically, Archimede's Screw, a machine designed to raise water with less effort than required from lifting buckets,  is attributed as being the first recorded use of a Bilge Pump. 

Many bilge pumps include an automatic float switch which activates the pump when the water is at a certain level. No matter the style though, they are an important safety feature for every vessel. A submersible bilge pump is vital for the safety and comfort when on the water. Every state and territory of Australia has different marine safety requirements. The regulation of carrying requirements for marine Bilge Pumps is no exception. We encourage you to check with the relevant Authority in your State for legislation relating to the carrying of suitable safety equipment for both recreational and commercial boaters.
